DNR law enforcement officer meets his match: one sassy turkey

Keeping DNR’s 2 million acres of forested state trust lands safe and sustainable requires watchfulness, resourcefulness and, often, a good measure of patience. That’s how DNR Law Enforcement Officer Gary Margheim decided to deal with this wild turkey taking its time to cross a forest road that he was patrolling. DNR officers and staff  are especially thankful for the opportunities working at DNR gives them to get outdoors during the week…  even it means dealing with a stubborn, feathered state trust land resident from time to time.
