I wonder if the coyotes here would respectfully leave them alone?🤔

Dave, I was just wondering if you have taken a Gray Gost in Michigan?
That would fill out all the Turkey hunting possibilities for you.

That's an interesting looking bird. I believe someone's domesticated tom got loose and sowed his oats!

Nope, it is a sub species that was discovered several years ago in central Michigan.
They are very prized and hard to find.
Studies have shown the DNA similarity to the wild turkeys and not so much with domesticated turkeys.

There are six species of wild turkey and the gray ghost is a sub species of the eastern turkey.
