Turkey

Turkey

Native to North America and common in just about every state, wild turkeys are highly prized game birds for their meat, large fan-like tail feathers, brilliant plumage, long "beards" and elusive nature. They come in a variety of sub-species with distinctive markings, but their body feathers are generally blackish and dark brown overall with a coppery sheen that becomes more complex in adult males (toms).

The spring and fall hunting seasons coincide with turkey mating habits, when the males become more aggressive and can be lured in with calls or decoys. Calling in a big tom is the real joy of turkey hunting, as a variety of turkey vocalizations can be imitated with box calls, slate calls, diaphragm calls and more.
