Looking for the differences
I realize this is a deer hunting forum, but I was wondering how to identify the different types of turkeys. Eastern v. meriaum, and so on.


pics would nice too

eastern are rusty tail edges. merriam is white, Rio buff, Osceola look kinda like skinny long legged Eastern but more black on the wings, Gould's look like a Rio i think.
