TOPIC: Wild Turkeys

Wild Turkeys 1 year 7 months ago #38034

Lisa and I saw about 50 or more of these this afternoon. These dozen or so were the ones in front of the line.

About 7 years ago I saw a whole corn field of these in South Eastern Ohio in the Putman Co area. If there was 200 there was 400. Seriously, they made the corn field black.

They sure know how to hunker down when they do not want to be seen though.

They can sure tear up ginseng beds and eat the seeds and young plants.

Oh but they sure are good on the supper table...

Take those huge breast fillets.. and slice them up across the grain into 1/2\" thick strips.

Batter em up and fry them up nice and brown... add mashed potatoes, homemade biscuits and sawmill gravy...

Yum Yum !

Those dudes can surely do a number on a sight quickly.

Of course, I plant on a slope. I had a bunch come through and trash a 30x60 spot two years ago. They just kept scratching and rolling the leaves and tops down the hill. Didn't hurt the roots but that years growth was cut short at the first of June.

I've got one little patch I've been trying to get going for years. There are a few plants, but hardly more plants then when I found the patch. Every time I go there to plant berries and hopefully dig a couple roots, there is tons of turkey scratchings. I'm not positive, but my guess is the turkeys are slowing things down there.
