It happened to be the first bird i killed on my own. Got him home and breasted him out, only to find a six inch stick lodged and healed over in his breast. He was on the lighter side, im sure he wasnt too spunky carrying that around.

Yes years ago. About 4" long and in a liquid sac in the breast.

This bird gobbled himself to death. Didn't need to call, he came right up the trail gobbling.

I killed a Adult Gobbler a few years ago and we cooked it for Thanksgiving, as I carved it I seen a Black spot that I thought was a feather draw. It was a stick the. Size of a pencil about 2" long all healed up. Had to hurt when he first did it I would think.
