Does anyone know what this is called? It looks like a clump of string rope hanging off the front of the chest of male turkeys. Silly question but I want to know what to call it (right now we call it the fishing lure).
Hi there. I just wanted to point out that although the beard does often signify that the turkey is a male. That is not always the case. Some males don't have beards and more frequently some female turkeys do have beards. It is actually somewhat common for the wild turkeys here in Maine.
not trying to contradict you just wanted to make sure you heard about that.
