Thanksgiving turkey

Have you ever shot your own turkey for Thanksgiving? If so, tell us about it.

(BTW, helpful tip: shotgun pellets bounce off the frozen Jennie-O turkeys at Safeway. Don't go that route.)

I killed one in Charouleau Gap in the Catalinas years ago.
Not much to the story.
I drove up over the pass and shot it in the river bottom.
It didn't taste very good though.
