Wild Turkey

Hubby finally had some luck while hunting.  He went out on Mother's Day and got a turkey up in the woods. 

Clyde is very interested.

Once he got home he had to check on line to see how to break it down.  It was easier than he thought.  This is the first time we've ever had wild turkey so we'll have to see if we can find some good recipes.  I think it's a lot leaner than farm raised, so maybe a bit tougher.  I think a turkey piccatta might be yummy, or turkey enchiladas, or turkey and dumplings...

Any other ideas?

Well what was it? We had heard that it was all dark meat and a bit tough, so we are so curious as to your thoughts on the meat. Sure looks huge in the picture! And hopefully not related to any of Nancy's 'pets' :0)

He just got the breast and the thighs/legs. It was just like a regular turkey: white meat breast; dark meat thighs/legs. Haven't cooked it up yet so don't know about the taste. Nancy said maybe hers' uncle!
