x2. That was my initial thought as well. I did not post it at that time because I did not want to come across as a hater, naysayer etc. With that said, congrats again on the bird.

That's what we thought it may be but, the road he lives on has two house on it for two miles and that's it. His and his dads. So we don't know if he was tame, where would he come from?

If he roosts in the woods nowhere near a farm, gobbles on the limb, and comes in to a call strutting, I would kill the hell out of him too. Good job. Pretty bird.

I'm not familiar with domestic turkeys, but what do you do in his position? Kill it? Assume it's domestic and let it go?

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.

I'm on my 2nd year turkey hunting and here's my 2 cents...

He's not heavy like a merriam, or are merriams not always big birds? Could just be an interesting white phase bird. I've seen some birds that were mostly white (silver phase) but still had some color. I wonder if this is just a natural phase or a bit of domestic genes bred into the wild flock. Wouldn't assume it's someone's pet, and if it is, then it got loose and is up for killing IMO...


Here are the ones I saw, much more white but still cool looking
