Wild turkeys come for a visit

We knew that wild turkey hens have been around as we caught nice videos of them on our trail camera. I counted 24 of them in our field this morning. What a nice sight!

I didn´t know that you have wild turkeys. Can you hunt them??

But since then due to the diligent restoration and conservation work the populations has increased to about 300000. Read more at
In May only males (toms) can be hunted, During the fall season both genders can be harvested.
