    Id love to do that in West Virginia. Bet it's beautiful.

    I saw this show on wild turkeys. Very smart. And the guy raising them got an inside look at being a non human. For some reason the other animals weren't afraid of him when he was with the turkeys. Deer would come close. As soon as the birds left the animals stopped treating the guy like he was a non human.

    Oh and each bird faught and the loser always left till one day the guy only had one turkey left and it attacked him. He beat it away with a stick and it flew off.

    Wild turkeys are smart Ben Franklin wanted the turkey to be our national bird because they were so wily. The best way to hunt turkey is find a turkey track (scout out where the turkey are) and sit back against a tree with a turkey call and wait for them to show up but don't be surprised if they spot you and run off before you can take a shot. Hunting turkey is challenging at best.

    Back up on the property. Last night I got up here around 2am. I didn't want to disturb the property so I went down 2 miles to where the road ends deep in the woods. I made a fire and laid a blanket out and slept under the trees with the dog. It was windy last night so beautiful. My brother got a hotel. He can't believe I can sleep like a cowboy.

    That's winter wheat growing in center field. It's supposed to be good for the ground. Adds nutrients so in the future the ground might be able to grow other things

    I'm going to work on the property this weekend. But first I'm going on a business meeting in Whitehall Michigan. Google Whitehall, mi and the Boyne mountain, mi and it's probably a beautiful ride up north. I've never seen all that and I'm looking forward to the ride.

    I'm taking my dog to a dog ranch in Whitehall so I can go to my meeting at 11am. Probably take an hour then I'm free. And I get paid my salary, milage to Whitehall and lunch I can expense. It's almost like a paid day off except the meeting but this is my best customer.

    I think Michigan is such a beautiful state and I've never even seen so much of it. But what I've seen I love.

    So after meeting me and dog go up and get a cheap hotel Friday night then hook up with my brother Saturday. Work on property then he gets a nice expensive room in Boyne Highlands.

    We're taking up the quadrunner too. I love these work weekends on the property. Little adventure.

    Is there a more beautiful state than Michigan? God bless america
