We’ve never seen anything quite like this, folks.
Will Isaac was turkey hunting public land in Missouri on opening day when he had an unforgettable run-in with a hen.
He called the hen in to try and bait some nearby toms, and it was all going to plan…until the hen started following him around everywhere!
You gotta check it out:
That’s about as realistic a decoy as you’re ever going to see.
And it worked! He started filming again after shooting a tom. And the kicker? The hen was STILL following him around.
I’m not a turkey guy, so I don’t know how to explain it. Whenever I see an animal act this comfortable around humans, my first guess is that someone was hand-feeding it. But a young female, on public land? Doesn’t make any sense.
“I’m gonna keep working my way back to the truck, I guess,” Will says into the camera. “I don’t know if this hen wants a ride back to Springfield or what. Wild. Never seen anything like it in my life.”
Neither have we, Will.
