Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

hey thanks guys...yeah the beard was pretty big for that bird...I expected the spurs to be a bit bigger...but I am satisified for my first bird...have not ate the meat yet...
I breasted him out, and also took the legs out...and washed them all off and froze it for right now..
I can't wait to try it!!! I've never tasted wild turkey

Can you guys direct me to any recipies on how to cook it? I dont want any extravagant spicey stuff...just a normal cooking method?

Thanks guys...

I've been seeing turkey in my woods just about every time I go deer hunting now...I sure hope they stick around!
We've never seen so many in these woods...So I've bought a turkey call in the mean time (I had a box call)
and trying to learn to use it , for spring...I also picked up and owl call...

Great job! Congrats on a fine bird!

As far as a recipe, I always cut the breast up in some smaller pieces and let it marinate in Dale's Seasoning. You can get it in Wal-Mart. After it's marinated for a while, it's ready to grill.

Here's what Dale's looks like:
