No the wild turkeys don't taste like the farm raised ones. The closest you get to good eating with them is with deep frying. Still they are so much fun to hunt that you can manage to eat one or two each year. Interesting how just seeing fresh tracks in the snow makes a person want to go hunting. Thanks for the day dream.
I was delivering some equipment the other day and was passing a picked cornfield and counted a flock of 35 turkey's scratching for corn. So I showed them I was one of them and they all flew to the far side of the field......What's up with that?!
We seen a winter flock of about 200 birds on Thursday. The largest that we've seen had close to 400 birds in it.
shotgun410, wild turkey properly perpared with a domestic turkey done the same and it will be hard to say which one is which. I know as I have had them side_by_side and folks could not tell the difference.
