Talking Turkey
The Texas AgriLIFE Extension Service
Wednesday, March 11, 2009 • Posted March 10, 2009

The Pedernales Wildlife management association and the Texas AgriLIFE Extension Service are sponsoring an educational program with Mr. Robert Linder presenting information on the Rio Grande Turkey. If you are interested in learning more about this interesting and beautiful bird that is native to Texas make plans to attend this program. The Rio Grande wild turkey is native to the semi-arid areas of the southern Great Plains states: Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Northeastern Mexico. It received its common name from the Rio Grande River, which is the water supply bordering the brushy scrub, arid country of some of its prime range in western Texas and northeastern Mexico. Mr. Linder is the current Texas State President of the National Wild Turkey Federation. He is an accomplished turkey hunter and caller. He will spend about an hour talking about how to understand how a turkey thinks and to demonstrate different calling techniques.

The rewards of calling for either photography or hunting can be great, so plan on joining us for this program that will be held on March 16th at the Blanco County Fairgrounds in Johnson City. The program begins at 6:45pm.
