About 60 people flocked to the SCT Annual Meeting’s presentation to learn about Meleagris gallopavo, the wild turkey. Brian Malone enlightened us with talk of toms, hens, poults, caruncles, snoods, wattles and spurs during his presentation discussing the history of the wild turkey, its decline and reintroduction to Cape Cod. Brian is a member of the National Wild Turkey Federation and Ducks Unlimited, and a master hunter safety instructor for the commonwealth. He is retired as a Natural Resources officer for the Town of Dennis.
Thanks to Brian for an outstanding presentation, all who attended, and to the Bee Hive Tavern for donating a gift certificate for our speaker. The SCT is also happy to have gained some new members at the meeting.
