My nephew thinks he is the reincarnation of Daniel Boone....he kind of seems like that to me, too. He's a great outdoorsman. Recently he brought home a wild turkey he rescued from a hunter. The thing was so ugly it was almost cute. It was also an idiot. It quickly adapted itself to our yard and roamed around like a dog. I named him Gilbert.
Well, "ole Daniel" wanted to teach me how to call the stupid bird with one of those turkey calling thingies. I told him I could call the turkey without those things. Smartie-pants nephew said, "oh yeah? Show me if you're so smart." So I did.
In my sweetest little lady voice I called out...."Gilbert gobler??Gilbert gobler??"" The goofy bird came trotting out of the bushes and right up to my feet.
Not sure why the nephew threw down that turkey calling thingie and stomped off.
