Wild turkeys may be anywhere now, guys. Fish & Game depts. have swapped 
them around. I think ours came from North Dakota. Audubon members who feed 
birds at their mountain cabin have seen a lot of them, but I haven't seen 
them in the wild.  Remember, a lot of our game animals are not 
natives.  Pheasants are Chinese, and Chukars are Hungarian partridges. 
They've transplanted some Michigan fish into some of Idaho's northern 
lakes.  Maybe muskellunge, but I hope not. They fish for those with live 
baby ducks attached to lines with hooks.  Sob.

Inside the back cover of the Nov-Dec Organic Gardening magazine, there's an 
article on and sketch of a wild turkey. Margaret L
