“A First Wild Turkey”

“Snapshot Saturday”

A wild turkey hen laid out in front of a forked maple tree.

A first wild turkey hen, a first shot pouch, a first powder horn and an as yet unnamed Northwest trade gun. At the muzzle blast the flock dispersed in all directions. Bronze feathers floated in the air, and as I ran to the downed fowl I thought “Old Turkey Feathers” fit the smooth-bored flintlock. Old Northwest Territory, 1790.
