    Its my avatar, shot this turkey in the fall of 2004 in Warsaw, MO. It was a hen trying to hang out with a flock of black birds. Definately not a tame bird, no houses for miles and Missouri Department of Conservation confirmed it as a wild bird. Thought you all might like the pic. Chris

    When I stayed in Tn, near Watauga lake, there were cross bred wild and domestic turkeys there. I was told it was open season on those birds if they had white on them.

    Nice bird you got there.

    We has a hen around here for a few years. She was white as snow. Amazing that it survived that long. Great pic. Hope the eating was as good.

    Really cool bird, I shot a bird back in VA 4 years ago that had way up in the mountians that had the bottom of his wings a buff tan. He was so pretty I had to do a full body mount on him. I was after a big White tom down in the Rich hill area a couple years ago. I saw him several times during deer season over a couple years, even had found some feathers during the spring but never laid eyes or the bead on him. Again Congrats on a nice looking bird.
