Wyoming Chronicle

Joe Hutto/Amanda Prom

Season 3 Episode 307 | 27m 48s

Wild turkeys, any hunter will tell you, are secretive birds. So naturalist Joe Hutto "imprinted" newborn turkeys, hoping they would bond and follow him. A short project turned into a year-long adventure for Hutto, who learned things no one knew about turkey behavior... and about himself. Hutto lives today on a small ranch in Wyoming, where he has begun a study of a resident mule deer herd.
