Well, the other day Jimbob decided that I should talk more about hunting on here. While I love that he loves hunting, I can’t say that I know that much about it. I know that he is either out hunting or fishing every Saturday. Usually this time of year he is hunting deer. I wanted to find a deer hunting infographic for you all to see, but believe it or not there isn’t one out there that I can find. I did come across one for turkey hunting though, and I figured that would be just as interesting. Turkey hunting doesn’t happen until Spring, but there are still some things on there that are cool to know. I learned quite a bit from the unique infographic, like:
- Hunting for turkeys is one of the fastest growing hunting activities in America. (And to think Ben Franklin wanted our national bird to be a turkey)
- The amount of feathers on a wild turkey is between 5,000 and 6,000.
- In a 2 week period, hens lay about 10-12 eggs. Typically that’s about one egg a day.
- Turkeys can run up to 25 miles per hour. They can fly up to 55 miles per hour.
