The Turkeys Are Fighting Back

I was riding along a local MUP at a pretty good speed when a line of wild turkeys popped out of the woods and ran right across the path. Fortunately, I hit the gap between the turkeys, yelling “hey turkey” which caused the last one in line to veer off. I rode off thinking “dang I could have had a free turkey dinner.”

Hey, wild turkeys are usually fairly surly. You may need the gun.

They were not trying to attack you, they were rushing out to greet their brother turkey.
