Terrierman has a good post about the recovery of America's wild turkey from an estimated 30,000 birds in 1910 to over 5 million today.
I see two or three flocks of wild turkeys every time I drive over Mesa Grande. Good country:
The October fires came awfully close, but this area was saved. Grazing projects and grazing easements are used in parts of California and around the West to keep the fire threat down. [We need more grazing easements.] Just drive kind of slowly around those blind curves.
