    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 ***.

    They were not trying to attack you, they were rushing out to greet their brother turkey.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
