The Quackers are very friendly around here and like to hang around people’s houses and even on the top of the houses
They like everybody and feel safe, it seems like they know if they stay In forest/wet land too long at a time the coyotes will get them,
Now these Tom turkeys, well all the turkeys around here are pretty much ornery! You come across or surprise one and it will get ya!
One fall morning 6-7 years ago changing a dead battery in wife’s van in the overflow parking area across the way from me that has a large field and wetlands behind it were some hens maybe a jake or two but then a large Tom turkey with about a 10in beard came from nowhere and attacked me!
He got a few claws and pecks in and I got in few kicks at it and the fight was over, I had my Carharts, leather gloves and steel toe work boots on so neither one of us was really hurt and he just walked away
