Don’t mistake the headline to this blog for watching an innkeeper prepare a turkey dish. What we’re actually referring to is wild turkey watching. In the wild. First, if you’ve never seen a wild turkey up close, it’s quite a sight – probably much larger than you’d expect even before they puff up their feathers and fan their tail. Country estate B&Bs that abut wildlife preserves include Eagle Centre House B&B in Eagle, situated on 20-acres in conservancy, where deer, wild turkeys, fox and redtail hawks are a common sight, and Moondance B&B in Fond du Lac, located on 3.5 wooded acres with a bird’s eye view of the wildlife that wanders in and out of the area from the second-story deck off their deluxe suite. Speaking of bird’s eye views, at Justin Trails B&B in Sparta, you can gaze out over their 210 acres from the vantage point of a 12-foot observation tower; you’re sure to catch glimpses of wild turkey and eagles. At the Kinni Creek Lodge & Outfitters in River Falls, guests who like to hunt turkeys and pheasants are always welcome and they even offer guided hunting excursions.
