Opening weekend my partner and I were covered up in long beards or at least we saw them and knew they existed. This weekend the long beards were no where to be found and Jakes were gobbling and seemed to ruling the roost. Where did the big boys go? I understand bucks leaving during the rut but would toms bale for greener pastures. We have hens that live on the property, plenty of food. Perplexed?
