Unlike its domestic counterpart, the wild turkey is a strong flier and can reach speeds in the air of up to fifty miles per hour for short distances. There are five subspecies of wild turkeys in the United States; the one found in Arkansas is the eastern wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo silvestris).
