I woundered when you would figure out to practice on those birds.  Remember to keep one after all the Holiday meals to help you keep up your practice.

Are you going into the turkey raising business?  You got a pen or did you clip their wings?  Just plain curious as to what got your started on this?

I once got some 4H turkeys to gobble by simply dragging an aluminum canoe across a gravel driveway.  I would drag it just far enough to make noise and they would gobble each and every time I moved the canoe.
