The Wild Turkey Whisperer


Joe Hutto has raised countless wild turkeys from the time they were eggs. He talks turkey--and that's no figure of speech. Having spent so much time with them, he's learned their language, and can mimic sounds they make to get them to come to him so he can, um, kill them and eat them for dinner. (This is a Thanksgiving post, you know).

Sample turkey talk: "Wow look at those berries! Ewww...nevermind. Those berries suck!" I kid you not. I learned about this from a New Yorker podcast. So how does wild turkey taste compared to its domestic brethren? "It tastes more like turkey," Hutto explains. "Longer in flavor. More complex." Well, I don't know about you, but wild turkey, regular turkey, or Tofurkey--I'm going to enjoy my Thanksgiving dinner! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
