As God As My Witness, I Thought Turkeys' Could Fly

Now I understand domestic turkeys, because they're bred for the giant breast, and they're just not balanced right.

 

But wild turkeys can fly. The question is, how well? If you threw a wild turkey out at 2,000 ft, could he fly to the ground?

 

Or would it be like tossing me out the car door at 60 mph? I can run, but I can't run 60, and even if I could I wouldn't be able to do it for long, and I would quickly fall flat on my face.

Thanks, Cy.  Still one of the funniest scenes ever on TV

 

A timeless classic in my opinion.

A wild one might be able to fly down OK, but not sure! I've seen them fly long distances off the mountain, but not at much altitude. I've also seen them "fly" down in the morning and forget the fly part. They've hit the ground like a lead basket ball.:) Shake themselves off and walk away from me. :mellow:

Got bunches of Wild Turkeys near.  Fast runners, strong flyers.
