I've never eaten wild turkey. I would expect it to be quite a different experience than the commercial artificially fattened, chemically enhanced birds we're all so used to on Thanksgiving.

very different. as with any wild game, very very lean and the taste can depend on what they're feeding on.

Down here we have a road (Ladson Rd) that goes from shopping centers on either side, to quite rural until it hits hwy 78.

Once you get to the rural part, the sides of the road are lined with turkeys. I'm sure at one point some redneck has taken one out from their car, lol

Saw about 30 feeding in a field down the road from me today.

I had wild turkey one year for thanksgiving. Gotta say it was a little disappointing. tough, dry. I wasn't cooking so maybe they just overcooked it. I generally like wild bird meat.

Yes they are. I don't cook them whole except for maybe a breast in a crockpot. stews, soups, turkey & gravy over biscuits.
