    Wednesday morning when I was on the schoolbus,I seen this beautiful turkey standing on the corner of the dirt road.It looked like a young male.He/she had a brownish black coloring and white wings with faded grey barring.it was still standing near the same place after school.I wanted to get it soo bad.The turkey looked like it was lost and I think someone dropped him off there.It wasn't the same color as the other wild turkeys here,and looked more domestic.The same turkey was still in the same place thursday morning and afternoon.Some of the other people on the bus said they were going to shoot it.Friday morning he was still there,so I said to myself that I was going to get that turkey after school so no one would kill it,but in the afternoon he/she was gone.It was a nice looking turkey and acted lost .I wish I could of at least taken a picture of it before it was gone.

    That sounds pretty sad, but maybe someone else adopted it. They probably wouldn't shoot it so close to the road.

    [​IMG] That makes me feel better to think that someone else took it in .There is a couple that have turkeys that live down that road.I don't think anyone would shoot it that close to the road either,considering there's a cop that lives two houses down from where the turkey was.But there is some people that live here that might would risk it for a fresh christmas dinner [​IMG]
