This should have been a fairly easy one for all the sportsmen.  This came from an Eastern wild turkey.  Its hard to imagine now but turkeys were once the victims of over hunting.  In the 1930’s their numbers were so low that they were difficult to find except in the most remote areas of the Southeast.  The Eastern wild turkey thrives all over the US now thanks to conservation efforts and is considered one of the greatest conservation success stories in the US.  Here’s a link to a video that gives a quick history of the Eastern wild turkey.

 

Here is this week’s question:  What is this little caterpillar on the underside of this cabbage leaf?  (Hint:  The damage it’s creating is unique to this caterpillar)
