Well had a new one today… Went to my buddies ranch where I keep a couple of hives and was planning to go turkey hunting afterward so I had my gun and equipment along with my hive stuff. I dug deep into one booming hive and had forgotten my smoker so the bees were pretty angry and swarming all around me. After I put the hive back together I walked 50 yards or so from the hive… and saw the bright red head of a tom turkey! Back to the hive I go and get my gun to try to stalk the gobbler. For those of you that don't hunt turkeys, usually you hunt them in full camo and sit under a tree for hours not moving an inch to keep from spooking them. Well, I'm about the opposite of that, still in a full suit with veil and gloves on, with bees still buzzing me! I stopped just below the rise where the tom was and suddenly he walks down the hill ten yards from me, stares at me, and keeps walking behind a bush. That gave me a chance to move and lower the boom. Attached is a "selfie" with me and Tom, with bees still circling! Now I just need to find a recipe for the smoker tomorrow that includes honey.
