Default Turkeys in my yard

Looked out my window to see two turkeys in my yard. No they weren't Capt Jack or Menzies.

You got yourself a Drake and a Hen there bud....You need to have some gun powder at the end of that scope of that camera, that Tom Gobbler would be mighty tastey....you got him on the run, he looks tamed to me.

Wild Turkey is for drinking. Them things ain't fitting to eat, they are alot better to look at then to cook. Way to gamey for me, I'll never kill another.

Ahhh the elusive wild turkey....cool.
Set some corn out, get you bow out, heat up the deep fryer.

Those are wild turkeys, not ducks. Therefore it's Jake for a young male or a Tom for mature male and a Gennie for a young female and Hen for a mature female. But to me they both look like hens.
