Golden Turkeys

I have seen those "golden turkeys" in the southeastern U.S. They are called "Bourbons." They are a cream color with golden-brown patches.

Ask Scott Gardner (DFG biologist) if he has heard of "Bourbons" and if they are considered a subspecies of the wild turkey family.

Editor's Note:
Here is the DFG response:

They are not a subspecies of wild turkeys. I checked with some other folks, and they are a known breed of domestic turkeys.

National Forest

Hunters be aware. The Los Padres National Forest has been closed to all vehicles for the last five years — that's 325,000 acres closed to us. Very maddening. I'm going after the head of the forest service.
