"Certain to become a standard reference work on any game bird-management shelf of essential books."--J.W. Hardy, Curator in Ornithology, Florida State Museum
"I doubt that anyone knows the wild turkey better than Lovett Williams and David Austin. Their years of research and experience with this magnificent American game bird are crystallized in this book. I learned more about the biology and ecology of the wild turkey and the turkey hunter in the few hours it took to read it than I had learned in a lifetime."--Herbert W. Kale II, Florida Audubon Society
