- , or turkey infectionA disease similar to turkey affliction. A turkey infection starts gradually when the hunter first goes to a calling contest, picks up a mouth yelper or begins to play with a diaphragm caller. Then he starts listening to veteran turkey hunters talk about their experiences and will usually accompany a hunter on a turkey hunt. Once he hears that first wild turkey gobble, the vector starts to incubate, and infection spreads. Then, when seeing his first wild turkey gobble and strut in front of him - just out of killing distance - the hunter feels the hair on his neck stand up, his face becomes flushed, his breathing becomes heavy, and his whole body begins to tremble with uncontrollable muscle spasms. He knows he's infected with turkey fever of both body and mind. One of the surest symptoms of turkey infection is a hunter's uncontrollable babbling about turkeys, turkey hunting, and turkey calling.
