I got out of the car and got pretty close, like waaaaaay closer than I think turkeys should let you get. They are BIG. Maybe they’re dumb, but I wasn’t about to prod this thing and have it freak out and peck my head. Maybe that’s not even possible. Here’s what I know about turkeys – I eat them. The last two I saw were on the side of a road when I was running near St. A’s. You know what those turkeys did? They RAN AWAY. This one did not do that. He was kind enough to allow us to drive around.
