'Field Notes' Talks Turkey

Nov 20, 2016
Although never native to Montana, turkeys were introduced here in the 1950s when national conservation efforts were mounted to save the species.

I had my first up close and personal encounter with a real live turkey this year while walking through a wooded portion of a friend’s ranch in the foothills of the Big Belt Mountains. Nothing too exciting happened - the bird and I stood and looked at each other for a time, and then went on about our business.
