M-50 and Hillsdale County Michigan’s Scenic Drive

Took a ride from my house up M-50 to north of Onstead a couple days ago.  It’s a very relaxing and scenic drive through the heart of “big buck” country (Hillsdale!)  The corn is high so I didn’t see any deer, but I did see quite a few turkeys.  Just south of the small town of Michigan Center I saw a group of 9 Tom’s feeding about 30 yards off the road.  I turned my car around and was able to snap a few photo’s of them.  The leader had a huge (12-14 inch) beard, and the others were 8 inches and up.  If you zoom in on the second photo you’ll see Mr. Long Beard on the right.  Sure would like to see one like that during hunting season!
