You obviously have very little experience with wild animals. Give it a swift kick in the chest, it'll fly back a bit, then come after you with a vengeance. I've heard of and seen Canada geese (smaller than a turkey) knock down full grown good sized men.

I had a full size dog attack me once , I kicked back 5 times after it launched at me 4 times in a row until it finally just stand there growling.

a turkey is at best 30 pounds , if you punch , it kick it , it stands no chance against you , and those beaks don't bite that hard if you grab it by the head and pin it down all it has left to attack you with are claws which will not kill you.

Our ancestors are laughing out loud at us from running away from wild turkeys.

If you have a motorcycle jacket and gloves and some boots and riding pants the turkey has absolutely nothing to harm you with , specially if you leave the helmet on , you can just stand there and laugh at it as it nibbles your boot or glove.

Also Turkeys if you notice are not jumping at the neck of their victims , a dog would kill you if it brings you down , the turkey will stand up to you and MAYBE try to pecker at you, if you run it will chase you, show it no fear and it may not even bother with you.

If it does happen to attack you , hold your ground and provide either a swift kick it's feathered chest or punch it hard on the head , it will know you are not fucking around and leave,if you still feel like it is too much of a challenge to you grab a stick and give it a swift pocking or strike it hard on the side , don't kill it unless you are hungry.

Benjamin Franklin wrote:
Others object to the Bald Eagle, as looking too much like a Dindon, or Turkey. For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk[Osprey]; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him. With all this Injustice, he is never in good Case but like those among Men who live by Sharping & Robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy. Besides he is a rank Coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the District. He is therefore by no means a proper Emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King birds from our Country...
I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For in Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America... He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.

I've never seen an aggressive wild turkey (at least not aggressive toward humans). I've seen a lot of aggressive domestic turkeys though. Them fuckers can be mean.
I don't think it's domesticated. I think it's a wild hen.

Worst he could do is scratch me. If a 20 or 30 pound turkey throws itself at me, I would care more about the bike tipping over.

It looks like a young jake...I don't see any spurs or a beard though so it's gotta be young.

You need to get out of the city. Turkeys don't bite, they use spurs. They don't peck you, they use spurs. Turkeys fly. If a turkey wants to fight, they will fly and use spurs (and claws) to kick the fuck out of whatever they can.

Wild turkeys just try to intimidate people when they've gotten used to being around them. People give them their space and the turkey gets an ego. I've never heard of anyone actually standing their ground and fighting a turkey. I have however sat in the woods and watched toms fight each other. I can tell you that I would NEVER want to be in the middle of that mess. I've also seen what their spurs do to my plastic decoys.

I don't know. Maybe you are some kind of tennis playing ninja tough guy that can super punch wild turkeys while they try to spur your face off. I don't know. I DO know that I'd love to watch you fight a truly agressive turkey that was intent on inflicting harm on you. If you ever get the opportunity, please please please get it on video.

It's a jake. Hens usually don't have that much of a snood and their heads aren't usually that white.

It's not likely to attack. Just trying to intimidate and see how far he can push you.

Yes. I forget sometimes that not everyone carries a weapon with them.
