Whiskey George Creek

I was listening to some interviews from my trip to Lakeland and rediscovered a clip of someone telling how Chiles claimed he had seen a turkey spin its head around, 360 degrees.

It reminded me of Whiskey George Creek in Tate's Hell State Forest. What a great landscape. I visited around Halloween and the bony underbrush made me think of skeletons.

To me, more fun than hunting a turkey is just giving it a bit of a scare. They're lazy creatures and you've really gotta run them down with a bicycle or car to induce them to flight.

Chiles was buried with a couple hand-crafted wooden turkey calls.
