I've seen more turkeys in the last month that in the previous 50 years.
It's like ticks in the summer of 2016.

It's been like that towards the East end of the Gorge for several years now. My wife and I have a running joke that it isn't a drive/hike unless we see turkeys going to or coming from wherever we are. There was one time we were driving out Ketchum Rd, which eventually turns into road 1711 where we came across a whole flock of them that insisted in running in front of us in the road for several miles.
Folks realize that a modern turkey is the evolutionary result of what was once a velociraptor, right? Velociraptor dinosaurs evolved into turkeys. Be wary, they remember.
