That's crazy! It amazes me how dumb they are sometimes.
It's true hard work never killed anybody, but I figure, why take the chance.

I am guessing raised by people.

Great show but agree with SpawnofChesty.

Yeah, there is something definitely wrong here based on my experiences.

This video is ridiculous...but yes, they HAD to have been raised by humans.

I have raised a few Rios and they would do the same thing, to the point of being a PITA when there is 20 of them or so. I have also had wild ones come real close and hang around, but never to that point, I agree, tame.

When I first started hunting just north of Jayton in both Kent and Stonewall Counties we had turkey that acted just like that. I do not think they had ever been hunted from what I could tell. We put out corn feeders the first year and the deer and turkey would not touch them. The second year you could be checking a feeder and a flock of hens would walk right up to eat corn at your feet. Hunted that ranch for 3 yrs and every turkey I saw was tame like that on 14,000 acres with large neighbors.

Guessing raised by somebody. Every time in the wild I have experienced the opposite, but who knows? Critters do the strangest things sometimes.
