Is anything more American than eating turkey at Thanksgiving?  Well, how about eating wild turkey!  It would make the Pilgrims proud.

While the main turkey season is in the spring, many states are now allowing a fall hunt.  Turkey have become plentiful across much of the south as restoration efforts over the past few decades have been very successful.  The addition of a fall turkey season, to control population growth in many areas, provides a great opportunity to get a fresh wild turkey for the Thanksgiving table!
