    My in-laws live in Madison, Wisconsin. Turkeys Ga Lore. There was a Tom with about a ten inch beard about 6’ from the front door; I was on a run one morning, and got close enough to a Jake that I coulda kicked it; and a hen and nine poults let me get within 15’. Photodocumentation below:

    Conclusive proof that city folk aren’t near as smart as country folk! I don’t have tiktok but my daughter shows me videos made by a guy in Texas. He lets deer in his house and hand feeds them corn. Then he’ll walk outside to his driveway and there’s like 40/50 deer waiting to be fed. Unreal.

    So this post brings to mind a question. Is this a issue with overpopulation because of lack of harvest or is this the turkey population learning how to be successful in living? So populations all over the country are down where turkeys used to be and its being blamed on predation, weather, farming practices, etc. An urban environment has wayy less of all 3 if not completely void of each. So is this the pea brain turkey learning where it can survive/reproduce safely?? May be a total bonehead question but one I wondered on when I seen this.
