Well, Sunday morning I finally filled my turkey tag on the last day of the season. What better way to celebrate the hard work I put into getting that gobbler than to pour a nice big glass of Wild Turkey 101. Man that was satisfying!! I hope he will taste that good!!!

What do you do with wild turkeys? If the answer is "eat them," how are they prepared? Do they bear any resemblance to domesticated turkey? How many did you take?

Best way to eat them is to fry the breast. That is about all there is to them. They taste better than domesticated turkeys in my opinion. I have not had a chance to go yet this year, but I have drank some Wild Turkey.

Like TMckenzie stated, I like to deep fry them. I inject them with some Tony C "juice" and pop them in the deep fryer at 300*. Remember to cook wild game less time than domestic as it has less fat.

Deep fried turkey is Awesome!!!! Here in Missouri we can only take 2 turkeys a season. I was only able to take 1.

Now if they just came out with some Wild Crappie or Wild Catfish bourbon to drink for those occasions!

Hmm, Wild Salmon Bourbon, that would be a big hit up here. :grin:

Congrats on your turkey. :toast:

I don't know what's going on since I am not a hunter.
I prefer to buy my meat/poultry/seafood at a retail outlet.
But I have had to brake hard and swerve to avoid wild turkeys on the the back roads this past week like I have never seen before.

At least now if you you hit one you'll know to deep fry it.

Never swerve to avoid hitting wild animals you just make the situation worse. Hit them you'll mess up your vehicle but that's what insurance is for. People get badly injured or killed by swerving and losing control of their vehicle or hitting on coming traffic.

"Never veer for Deer"

I like that! Swerving is almost always the wrong thing to do. Grab the wheel with both hands and follow the road.
