<P style="MARGIN: 0px">I was out scouting for this weekend and saw a tom in the field that was red in color.&nbsp; It also had a small patch of white on it's chest/breast area.&nbsp; The beard was good size.&nbsp; The color difference was easy to see as it was with 3 other turkeys.&nbsp; Just curious if anyone else has ever come across this.&nbsp; And if the chance comes up this weekend should I harvest it?&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P>

<P>I would take it no doubt. I have seen different color variations and have shot one with some white feathers. Take it, shoot some pics and then mount it if it is pretty like you described.</P>

I have seen a couple of gobblers with a hint of white in a flock in Medina County. They would be spectacular mounts. I'd certainly take an odd color phase. Just think of it as chlorinating the gene pool.

<P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="arial, helvetica, sans-serif" size=3>&nbsp; Some years ago in the Valley City Area ,(near Buckeye High School and Wolf Rd.) was a group of Turkeys about 7 if I remember, that had a lot of white on them and the body feathers were like a washed out brown that gave the appearance of red! I thought they were domestics, but when&nbsp;I asked the home owner if they were his, He told me that they were wild and had been around for a couple years<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/confused.gif" align=absMiddle border=0><IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/confused.gif" align=absMiddle border=0><IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/confused.gif" align=absMiddle border=0>&nbsp;</FONT></P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face=Arial size=3>&nbsp;Go figure? Did some domestics get out and reproduce with some wild ones creating this coloring or is mother nature creating something new?</FONT></P>
