Turkey time

Our Thanksgiving holiday is just under 2 weeks away and many people will have begun to think of their turkey dinner.   Most of the turkeys consumed at the dinner tables will be of the domestic type.   However wild turkeys have become so numerous in southern Ontario that some of them will have been hunted, frozen and five months later headed for the serving platters.   The wild turkeys pictured above, near Kettleby, are wary creatures however and the dramatic increase in their numbers isn't because they are foolhardy.   Wild turkey hunting season this year included a week last spring and now a week in October.   The start of the fall season is October 14, the day after Thanksgiving.
