Three more sweep rides this weekend. Two Kings and one Golden.
The highlights for this weekend were seeing several deer including the mom with her two young fawns. I also saw a turkey on King that was acting strangely. Instead of running away when she saw me she moved slowly through the grass. I looked down and I noticed right near the trail a baby turkey about the size of a grapefruit. He still had his white baby feathers on and he was way too young to be able to fly. He was really cute. He was so little that it was a struggle for him to try and push his way through the grass. There may have been some more babies around but I only saw the one.
