Sorry for the poor pic, but phone through 2 door glass, plus fog, plus rain don't make for fine fotos,

46 that I could count without opening a door and scaring them, some just 30' of the back porch.

Guess I'd best get some shelled corn.

I'm not a turkey hunter, but I know quite a few guys who are.
From what they tell me, wild turkey meat is tough, dry, and stringy. Maybe they would make a good tasting broth, but might be too tough to cut the gravy. :surpr:

Maybe you could catch a couple, put them up in a pen and feed them for a couple months to tenderize and fatten them up a bit.

But don't let the game warden know what you're doing, probably easier and cheaper to buy a Butterball. :look:

pretty much just breast them out, but I do keep the thigh meat. Chunk it up, dredge it in flour, salt and pepper, fry the chunks in bacon grease. Don't get them over done or too crisp. Turkey McNuggets. Pretty good.
