Can you domesticate a wild turkey if you have it as a chick?

Im not a turkey expert but you might have to check local fish and game about regulations on taking wild animals.

you can domesticate any animal if you raise it. It is illegal in many areas to take wild turkeys and raise them, make sure to check with local fish and game.

It's possible. Take my word that you can't tame them when they grow up. I've caught so many wild turkeys that have really torn themselves up trying to get away. I would never keep a wild turkey. I just wanted to observe them. My title says everything.
