It is just amazing how many Wild Turkeys we have in this area. We’ve seen as many as thirty wandering about our neck of the neighborhood.
These are two of three toms that regularly visit us – and routinely start gobbling at daybreak, which currently occurs about 5:15 a.m. I thought these two fellows looked like they were showing off for each other.
This was a tom that was destined for the table. We allowed our friend Brad and his son Cole to hunt on our property. They each took one tom and we were the recipients of the first wild turkey either of us had ever eaten. It tastes very similar to domestic turkey however, it is considerably tougher.
I’ve seen up to twelve toms strutting their stuff, all for the attention of ONE hen! The hens don’t seem to pay much attention to them.
