Despite their skittish nature, turkeys aren’t harmless by any means.
They aren’t an animal to be feared, but anytime you kill one, or think you’ve killed one, it’s best to approach one with caution.
These birds can put a serious hurting on you, like this hunter found out after grabbing a longbeard that still had some fight left in him. The turkey caught this guy right between his middle and ring finger, cutting a deep gash that he’ll be feeling for a long while.
Be safe out there and never underestimate your prey.
