Turkey Hunting Basics: Wild Turkey Facts and Terms
Here are the turkey hunting terms and facts that every turkey hunter should know.
An adult male turkey is called a gobbler or a tom. Adult male turkeys weight between about 15 to 32 pounds and average from 30 to 40 inches in height.
Gobblers have feathers colored brown and black (generally) with the tips being very dark black. Their breast feather are often very black with shining white ends. The wing feathers are a mix of black, brown, and pale tan.
Overall gobblers are shinier that female turkeys, a genetic trait meant to attract hens and warn off other gobblers.
Adult male toms have a beard hanging from their necks made of feathers (not hair as it might at first appears). A gobbler's beard grown 4 or 5 inches each year and can be used to estimate the age of the bird.
Gobblers have very long and thin legs with bony spurs. The spurs range from under a half-inch to over two inches and can also be used to estimate the age of the bird.
A gobbler's head has finely stubbled feathers although it appears bald from a distance. The colors of a gobbler's head are generally dark blue, light blue, white, and red. A goobler's head coloring can actually change given the mood of the bird.
An adult female turkey is called a hen. Hens are much smaller in size than the male turkey gobblers. Hens tend to weigh between 8 and 15 pounds, with 15 pounds being a very large hen. Hens are generally between 25 and 39 inches in height.
Hens have brown colored feather which are duller in appearance than those on a tom. A hen's feathers have dark brown tips. A hen has short grayish brown feathers on its head.
Young male turkeys are known as jakes. Young female turkeys are called jennies. Baby turkeys are known as poults.
Wild turkeys can be found in every state of the USA. There are six types of wild turkeys in the USA: the Rio Grande turkey, the Eastern turkey, the Ocellated turkey, the Merriam's turkey, the Osceola turkey, and the Gould's turkey. The main differences are feather color and general size.
Turkeys have a wildly varied diet when it comes to food. Turkeys eat insects, plants, grubs, berries, and nuts among other things. They often use their feet and legs to unearth food from the ground.
Turkeys spend their nighttime hours roosting in trees and they hunt for food during the day. While searching for food they create scratchings on the ground which you can read when turkey hunting.
Turkeys spend most of their time together in small flocks especially during the winter months. Winter flocks can be huge with fifty or more bird. That's one of the reasons turkey hunting is closed in most states during this time.
Turkeys mate in the spring, with the hens laying eggs that will be fertilized by the toms. It is during this time that the male toms make their famous gobbling sound.
Wild turkeys (unlike domesticated birds) can fly short distances at speeds of up to 55 mph.
