Maybe a domestic that got mixed up with the wrong crowd?
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

Have a buddy with the same theory. Didn't see anywhere nearby with domestics but couldn't completely rule it out.

Coming up on him I initially thought it was a very confused duck  :chuckle:

Not a domestic, Iíve seen a few all white turkeys hunting before.  One of them I called in for my buddy, and he was the dominant Tom.  Watched them fly out of the roost that morning.  Not very pretty once you get up to them.

I've seen wild hens with white chicks...no domestics around here. They usually don't last long though...pretty easy target for great horned owls up in the roost. The four white ones I saw were all gone by Sept.

I saw a white one once with an orange saddle and tail. Down by Rock Lake. I have a tail feather off of it somewhere upstairs. Only saw it once and it was definitely a wild one. Domestic white birds cannot fly like a wild turkey.

I was surprised to see its lasted this long. Quite a survivor - though I suspect it spends most its time on private.

Seen a couple up my way this year, and they roost with a group of about 7 birds.  There used to be 2 in this group, I'm assuming the other one turned into owl pellets or coyote scat

Is anyone else disappointed to see the demise of albino or leucistic animals. Some woman in I think South Carolina shot an all white whitetail this year. I didn't think it was right shooting it. I don't know...

what isnít right about it?  I saw nothing wrong with shooting the Tom we did, are you holding it to a higher standard just because itís white?  Itís a genetic defect and thereís a reason they donít last in the wild
