Thread Name: BS: Wild turkeys ?
Subject: RE: BS: Wild turkeys ?
Turkeys are quite adept at reproduction. Wild turkeys were extinct in Iowa throughout most of the 20th century. Fifteen years ago or so they were reintroduced into some wildlife preserve areas in northeast Iowa. Now I see a whole flock (12) of wild turkeys stroling through my yard in the middle of town (pop. 130,000). We often see wild turkeys in town while driving around. They seem to be outnumbered only by deer and rabbits.
