Kansas has a three part turkey identity. Eastern in east, a band of hybrid Eastern mixed with Rio Grande then pure Rio Grande out west.
Our experience over recent seasons shows Eastern – Rio-Eastern hybrid – Rio Grande Turkey distribution roughly depicted on this map. While such maps exist from a number of sources reflecting a similar general depiction it is always of interest when one or another is found crossing distribution lines. When it happens it is typically an Eastern found farther west.
