I'd say it was tame.

Hey guys, going on my 5th year turkey hunting, so pardon my ignorance. But...do you seriously think it is tame, or am I missing the joke. If your serious, why would you think it is? Also, can someone on here say for sure that it is a merriam? It sure looks like it is. Again, pardon my ignorance, but have you guys killed or seen killed any other birds in TN other than Eastern? Just curious...Anyway, beautiful bird.



Because I have seen first hand other species in Tn that were pen raised.... for whatever the purpose.... maybe that is the case and it escaped it's pen.... being a turkey, he went and mingled with the native population.

I am betting a wild hen got mixed up with a tame tom. Hens travel quite some distance, so it doesn't have to be from near by.

BTW, I would have shot it and been proud of it. It's a good bird and probably as wild as the rest in woods.
