  1. This morning driving to work, I saw my first wild turkey in Whitley Co.!!!
    Maybe there is hope for this turkey devoid section of the state after all.
    It was a hen by the way.
     
  2. There'll be a million of 'em around there in 3 yrs.
     

  3. About 4 years ago I was coming accross county line road just west of community hospital on the southside of indy at about 8:00 in the morning. The traffic started slowing for what at first looked like a goose crossing the road...wrong...it was a hen turkey. There is a small field on the north side of the road. I assume she was coming or going from there. She was just standing there in the middle of a 4 lane road without a clue where to go. I went that way to work for 2 more years and never saw a turkey again.
     
  4. From your lips to God's ears, James.
     
  5. It was not that long ago that you didnt see any in St Joe county... Now they are all over,coming into town and digging throught the trash cans like dogs:bonk:
     
  6. problem turkeys

    I believe when the wild turkeys come into town and start digging through trash they are considered "problem turkeys" and you could probably spurred and or beaked by one of these aggressive birds. Probably have to start darting them like black bears.
