During my week in Albania, I saw a lot of strange sights. But the most bizarre was the wild turkey herders that were found all along the highways and roads. The wild turkey is the purest American symbol for Thanksgiving. It was shocking to see them here in such an abundance.

Avid hunters often agree that it is the most challenging and elusive fowl to hunt. And a full-grown adult male can be a challenging adversary to most predators. Yet the Albanians have managed to instill a herding instinct into them.
