    Albino Wild Turkey??

    driving home from deer hunting today just south of mio I saw an all white turkey on the side of the road. there were no houses around and it looked to skinny to be a domestic of farm turkey.
    there was traffic behind me so i couldnt stop to get a pic.
    is there such thing as a albino wild turkey?

    Here's some:

    •Color Phases: A few wild turkeys grow unusually colored feathers. These are known as color phases. There are four color phases, a smokey gray color phase, a melanistic color phase (all black), an erythritic color phase (reddish coloration) and an albino color phase (very rare).

    Although I didn't see an albino turkeys I've seen more then a few odd ones in the Mio Fairview area. We did see one a few years back that the town of comins and Fairview were trying to protect, it had an all white tail feather section. Someone wacked it on 33 with a big rig.

    turkeys have many color phases, some are near white also known as smokey grey

    or it could have been albino.

    google smokey grey turkey, you will find many images.

    Mio/Fairview

    This year hunting the Mio/Fairview area. Did a couple days of archery hunting and did the firearm opener.

    I was very surprised at the low number of shots I heard, and how far away they were. Nothing like hunting Newaygo Co!
