That there is one proud bird! I think you're going to have a heck of a time bringing yourself to give him the lop.
Go ahead and enjoy your dinner. I have personal experience with domestic turkeys and they have to be the dumbest creatures on the planet. They make jellyfish look like Aristotle. If they have any purpose besides supper, I can't find it.Wild turkey, both the bird and the bourbon, are delicious, worthy of respect and worth the chase.'Nother topic: If you get a chance, try Mac Baren HH Mature Virginia tobacco. It's not quite as sweet as our pressed Virginia flake but it is pretty good. Also, try the Virginia flake in a corn cob pipe. Hadn't used one in decades but read that it worked well with Virginia tobacco. It really does. Certainly worth the few bucks to try.Jeff The Bear
