Its the first picture. I'm just a deer hunter, don't know much about turkeys. I had a few people on another forum saying it looks like a hen. Your probobaly right. Just thought i would ask. If it was a hen i would really like to have it, lol

You better start turkey huntin'. Looks like you got a nice spot there Yes
That's the pic I was lookin' at. The other 2 birds are Toms, so they probably are bach'd up, they all look to be the same size. Head color and size and tail feather length resembles more of a Tom.
I shot a Tom last season that had a beard that looked like that one. Ended up it just looked that way when he was coming in. It was a very thick beard that was wet and actually separated in the middle to look like a big double beard.

Hey man thanks for the info. Yeah its a good spot and on my land. The feeder is only like 200 yards away from the house. But i don't hunt there, i hunt about 7 or 8 ridges up. But i actually check my camera everyday and don't get a lot of toms. I had about 40 Turkery here yesterday. But i didn't have my camera up at that time, lol. Thanks once again
