Artist's Description


AS I WAS DRIVING TOWARDS YOLO SPORTSMANS ASSOCIATION NEAR WOODLAND CALIFORNIA, I HAPPENED UPON A FLOCK OF ABOUT 12 “WILD TURKEYS” TRYING TO CROSS THE ROAD IN FRONT OF ME. LATER I THOUGHT, IF I’D PUSHED DOWN ON THE GAS PEDAL INSTEAD OF THE BREAK, I MIGHT HAVE HAD TURKEY FOR SATURDAY NIGHT DINNER. I HAD SEEN THESE TURKEYS IN THIS SAME AREA BEFORE, BUT I WAS NEVER CLOSE ENOUGH TO GET GOOD PHOTOS OF THEM. THIS PARTICULAR DAY, I JUST HAPPENED TO HAVE MY CAMERA BAG OPEN AND MY CANON EOS KISS REBEL, WITH MY 70-300MM QUANTARAY LENS, WAS LAYING THERE READY FOR ANY ACTION. SO, I GRABBED THE CAMERA AND STARTED SHOOTING TURKEYS FROM THE DRIVERS SEAT, OUT THE PASSENGER WINDOW. FOR SOME REASON, THE ENTIRE FLOCK OF BIRDS, DECIDED TO TURN AROUND FROM THE ROAD AND HEAD BACK ONTO THE LAND THAT THEY ARE PRIVY TO. THE FUNNY PART IS, THEY ONLY LIVE ABOUT 1/4 MILE FROM THE GUN RANGE. SO FAR, THEY HAVEN’T MADE IT THAT FAR AND NOBODY HAS SHOT ANY OF THEM. ONE OF THESE DAYS THOUGH, BANG. I’VE HEARD OTHER SHOOTERS TALKING ABOUT TURKEYS AT THE RANGE, BUT AS YET, I’VE NEVER SEEN THEM THERE. I GUESS THEY ARE LUCKY TO STILL BE ALIVE, CONSIDERING HOW MANY GUNS ARE GOING OFF ON ANY GIVEN DAY AT THE GUN RANGE.
