I don't understand.
But then again, I am an apex predator. I see the turkey in its proper place as a prey animal.
Any turkey stupid enough to get into arms length is going to learn that. Briefly.
Yup, they're agressive birds, but they are only birds.
We had a couple of premature turkey dinners because one of the toms would get stroppy. Grampa had a policy about that. Anything tries to bite him, it's dead.
A wild turkey will be faster and more agile than its barnyard cousin, but it's just as fragile, and because it's a smaller, leaner animal, easier to get to the neck.
Don't be afraid, it's not a lion or a wild boar. You're looking at some scratches at worse.
Grab the neck or head and whip it around a couple times, you'll feel the neck snap. Repeat as needed. Like so many other critters, running from them provokes the attack, not defuses.
