Just not very far. There was one behind my house last night. I was on the veranda, sipping Coors and got up to chase a deer. Then I spied the turkey out of my peripheral. I crept up on to see if it was a turkey vulture. I made the I.d. Sure as hell, a turkey. Of course, I have seen them from the road, but never this close. And, I had laid my phone down so no pictures. Using my recon skills, I got to within 25' before he flushed. The dad gum thing upped and flew into the trees. I never knew a turkey could fly! Yes, there is a WKRP in Cincinnati reference.
