Turkey hunting season is in March.
Most folks find their November turkeys in the supermarket.

There are myths that persist that turkeys are quite stupid. These are debunked, along with the myths that teachers in churches persist in teaching that sheep are stupid too. With such thinking people can justify to themselves what they do with such animals, though that is not a logical basis. Rather use of them for food isn't needed, and it is not of the perfect design for us, when we can eat in a much healthier way.

Wild turkey are very smart. However from what I have heard, the domestic (white feathered) turkey is so dumb that, 'when it rains, it looks up to see where the water is coming from and will drown itself'. Don't know if that is true, but that is really dumb.

Let's just say I'm not aware of any documented cases and tend to think this a literal urban legend. :)

I only know [if the story I heard be true] that Ben Franklin thought the turkey much better suited to be our national bird than the eagle.

Franklin's Letter to His Daughter (excerpt)

"For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character.
He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself,
he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him.

"With all this Injustice, he is never in good Case but like those among Men who live by Sharping & Robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy.
Besides he is a rank Coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the District.
He is therefore by no means a proper Emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King birds from our Country...

"I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey.
For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America...
He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on."

Hey RABLINMAN
It is a good thing that you were not here Tueday with that outfit shown earlier. :lol:
I was over near the pond and all a sudden a large bird of prey swooped down from behind me. It then flew about 3 feet off ground in front of me. About 50 feet out it flew almost straight up into a tree and sat there and watch me for awhile.
From size probable a large hawk or young eagle. Being that friendly to people makes me think hawk.

I've heard stories all my life about the Thunderbird.
There may be more to it than mere legend.

Indeed, it is exactly that, which you are among many who have heard, that is debunked. One site showing it is http://www.snopes.com/critters/wild/turkey.asp .

Another site from http://animals.howstuffworks.com shows why it would ever happen that any domestic turkeys would point their head upward:

So why do turkeys sometimes stare skyward? Tom Savage, a professor of animal science at Oregon State University, says that the root of this behavior is not stupidity, but genes. In the early 1990s, he discovered an inherited condition among turkeys, called tetanic torticollar spasms. This condition can cause turkeys to exhibit abnormal behaviors, such as looking at the sky for 30 seconds or more at a time.
Turkeys actually aren't as dumb as they may look. They socialize with each other, and if humans are around, they will come over to greet them.
Domestic turkeys can't fly; they lose their aerodynamic properties because of how they are bred for heavy meat production, although they will sometimes try to hop around.

Those kept with the farming used for it are indeed having heavy meat production that they pursue making the most of, and it is with great abuse with overfeeding them with health problems to them from that, it should not need to be pointed out that their lives in miserable conditions include them being slaughtered while yet very young.
