Maybe you guys could help me name him?
Infraction Notice from VMB Management???
How about 2Skinny?
Got the pic from my screened deck, so it's blurry. As far as dinner, I'm pretty sure these guys are why I don't have to clean up much after my dog. So dinners out.
I have counted 46 at one time passing thru, my twelve year old golden is so use to them, she doesn't even chase them any more.
Infraction sounds about right, but I should be ok as long as I don't go with Ken or Lola. LOL I think that would be crossing a line.
Glad you guys caught my twisted humor.
I guess he felt pretty brave coming out AFTER Thanksgiving. Maybe Lucky would be a good name; that is, if he doesn't end up on some plate.
In NC, wild turkey hunting season is in the Spring (April-May) so none of the turkeys in our area are worried in November ;-)
Deer, on the other hand, should be afraid....We had venison on Thanksgiving
The only wild turkey on our table would be in a tumbler with a few ice cubes.
clearly, now would be a great time for someone to explain the difference between "wild" and heritage.
please do not let it devolve into a discussion about line caught, free range, cruelty free, or any of those other divisive topics.
talk among yourselves.
"Wild" = what runs thru your back yard
"Heritage" = is a breed that has it's roots in a time, before Turkeys were mass produced.
Thank you for clearing that up.
Does anyone need an explanation of the difference between wild turkey and Wild Turkey?
A wild turkey is a feral native bird. Picture a wild pig versus Wilbur.
Heritage is any number of historic strains that were domesticated early on but still retain many natural/native qualities, as in they can fly and breed on their own, and thus have the musculature of a free bird and thus a higher percentage of red meat. Think Duroc pork or heirloom tomatoes. (But you know that given what you do!)
The commercial broad-breast white turkey was selectively bred to diminish the red meat and accentuate the breast, with a lighter bone structure. They are mobile but cannot fly and need an assist getting their nasty on, reportedly. Think veal, maybe?
White breasted turkeys can't "get it on" ?......without help ?
The sh*t I learn here on VMB !!!!!!
I caddied with a guy whose nickname was "Wild Turkey" --
but I don't know if his breasts were white or red ?
If I had to guess I would say that was a young female. Give her another year she'll be more voluptuous.
In the twenty one years here, I have only seen three males, maybe 10k females? lol One of the neighbors gets a couple a year with a bow, I had some once, I didn't think it was very good. But maybe it was how he cooked it.
As god as my witness...
I remember that episode - the best ever! Thanks!
