I was hoping to go turkey hunting yesterday but an emergency phone call cut that short. So I decided to rake some leaves instead and I had some help waiting for me.Attached File  DSC_0172.JPG   73.38KB   39 downloadsAttached File  DSC_0174.JPG   77.07KB   38 downloadsAttached File  DSC_0177.JPG   69.48KB   38 downloadsI mention work and they fly the coop!Attached File  DSC_0181.JPG   53.36KB   37 downloadsAttached File  DSC_0198.JPG   58.68KB   37 downloads

That's pretty cool John. We never had turkey's at our old house, but we had a few coveys of quail that hung around. I loved just watching those little characters and all of their funny antics. It's nice when you have wildlife around your place.I do believe we was being "mooned" by that one dude. :1106:

I know someone that bought a home with property that the former owners had peacocks. They tried trapping them and it didn't work out so I've been asked to remove them. They are very good eating and make great jerky too.

Sorry but since it isn't much sport except for distance I haven't bothered to document my achievement. It would equate to holding up the Aflac duck you see in the commercials. :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow: As for cooking them my favorite way so far is like a large beer in the rear chicken. That way it stays very moist and I just use a rub I've come up with on my own for doing chickens. I use a medium sized tomato juice can as beer cans aren't strong enough to work well. I would like to try one deep fried but dealing with the oil afterward is such a pain. Plus if anyone has ever spilled oil during a deep fry adventure knows what that is like! I've also been slicing some and grinding some that I made into jerky. One precaution is that I use to be safer is to slice the meat and freeze it at 0 degrees or lower for 30 days to help kill any parasites that may be in the meat. I didn't do this at first but it was recommend to me by someone in the know. The sliced I just marinate and the ground I throw some rub minus most of the salt and use my jerky shooter to squirt out strips. I've mixed some ground with ground beef too and it's very good also. I can make jerky out of anything pretty much. Maybe some crow jerky when the season rolls around.
