    Ever seen a turkey feeding at night? Here's one out for a midnight snack.

    Did you take the pic yourself, and actually see it walking around? If not, it's probably just a photo of a decoy.

    Pretty unusual for a wild turkey to be on the ground at night, I know that I have never seen one. (Of course, that ain't to say that it's impossible, just that I ain't never seen it!)

    Not that unusual...they can get spooked out of the trees by lightning and owls (Great Horned or Snowy)...have seen it done.
    They say an owl isnt big enough to kill a turkey but I have seen both a snowy and a Great horned do it. They couldnt eat it all...but they got the job done.
