Been watching a local flock of turkeys. Mind you in N.W. Ia. anything more than a half dozen is a flock. There's a bird in the bunch that has some blonde coloration. Is this bird a domestic cross/breed or what?

Tough to get close to these birds. Dont own a fancy camera but I'll try. If it's a cross it needs to be removed from the flock.

mudder you will be hard pressed in NW Iowa to find a turkey that isnt a hybrid. I have seen 3 or 4 off of route 12 or 14 cant remember exactly that had a little domestic to them because they looked ash colored with white frost feathers.

They looked neat as hell. I would shoot one if it rolled up on the decoy!

Hell a lot of folks go to NE chasing the big M and yes you can kill one but you better find 1 first. The chances of you pulling a trigger on a pure strain is very low and most today over in this region anyway are in fact a hybrid of some sort. Very true in NE.
