A Post Thanksgiving Turkey ‘Hunt’

By James Lomuscio

With leftover Thanksgiving turkey still in some fridges, not to mention the desire to walk some of it off, about 30 men, women and children today flocked to Westport’s Earthplace: The Nature Discovery Center for a chilly trek to ferret out and learn about some their main course’s feral cousins—wild turkeys.

Led by Joe DeBone, a retired Norwalk firefighter, naturalist and avid outdoorsman who has made the post-Thanksgiving Turkey Walk and Talk a regular event, the group had almost given up hope after DeBone’s various hen turkey calls designed to attract Toms turned up no suitors. That is, until participants came to the overgrown, now leafless, abandoned field lined by a centuries old stone wall.

“There, on the other side of the stonewall,” DeBone blurted.

The crowd crunching dried leaves along the trail came to an abrupt halt, and then slowly stepped forward, some on moss to muffle their footsteps, to spy the birds. As if it were a hunting expedition, cameras came out on cue.
