Dumb Turkey Stories - 2

Luke Tonlino of Otis, Massachusetts was admittedly a bit peeved. Upon hearing some odd banging sounds coming from outside his home last week, Tonlino decided to investigate. That’s when he spotted the source of the commotion—an adult gobbler. Apparently enamored with his own reflection in the bumper of Tonlino’s truck, the bird strutted back and forth occasionally pecking at the high-polished chrome.

“I went inside for the camera and watched him for 5 minutes,” Tonlino said. “He saw me and didn’t care—until I ran him off. I was afraid he would ruin the bumper.”

You hear these types of stories every spring and it still never ceases to amaze how a bird that is often so very hard to hunt can act so absolutely silly. What’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever seen a turkey do?

Unfortunately, I don't run into very many dumb turkeys. Most of the ones I chase around seem to be pretty smart, if you know what I mean...

I got caught behind a line of turkey cuased traffic about 2 weeks ago. Country road in SE PA between a couple of farms, I was about 8 cars back. When I got out to see what the holdup was I saw the low dark shape bobbing around through the wheel well and thought someone had hit a Lab. Then it came around the corner of the car. There were 2 gobblers and one of them was spurring the hell out of this little blue car. I started to walk up, but a gentleman in a pickup from the otehr direction got out of his car and ran them off.
