    In my opinion, wild turkeys aren't as moist and tender as domestic turkeys. I use either a brine on it or slap some bacon on the breast. Also try not to overcook it. Just one opinion. :)

    You got a couple hours to dump into a brine? All it will take....

    Definitely brine. I just did one over the weekend and didn't brine. It was OK but it would have been a lot better if I had brined. Make sure to foil to help keep some juice around (at foiling stage) . Good luck.
