Gobble, gobble?

“Get the Cranberry Sauce” was the subject line of the first E-mail I opened this morning. Poor turkey bird was the attachment. The pretty feathers shot, is from my fowl hunting son-in-law. Four and twenty blackbirds, I mean twenty four pounder! I know, Eeeeeewe!

  1. Yes… turkey season started Monday. Jason’s first day out, on Tuesday, he was able to call in this guy. John and Tommy were very excited! They’re both 4 years old, and their question for Jason was, “Daddy, where’s the blood?” Weird huh?

  2. A little wild turkey background for all who may be interested. Wild turkeys numbers hovered around a dismal 30,000 in Missouri’s 1930’s largely due in part to market hunting. This along with illegal hunting took quite a toll on these beautiful birds that Benjamin Franklin once lobbied to be USA’s national bird!

    Due to the hard work of conservation minded Missourians & hunters, the conservation dept. and wildlife code were established in 1937. These efforts have brought back this popular game bird numbers back to 600,000 strong!

    There is a Spring and Fall turkey season offered to hunters who take and pass a hunter’s safety course and pay a $17 license fee (Spring season) which allows the hunter to harvest two birds during a 3 week season.

    Missouri will take in approximately $3.4 million in license fees in 2010 alone that go directly back to conservation efforts in our state! Remember to thank a hunter next time you see one and take a kid fishing & hunting!

    Btw, I’ll be deep frying my organic turkey nuggets rolled in Andy’s seasoning soon. Delicious! Anyone getting hungry? I make turkey soup in the fall with the dark meat. Just gotta remember to not add too much celery to my soup!!!
