27 Harvested Turkey Photos so Good They're Artwork

Check out all these artistic photos so far for 2017 on Instagram, of turkeys people have harvested.

In the early years, when you harvested a game animal, you took often just one photo. You would hike up behind your trophy, hold the normal "I shot this" pose and snap the picture.

Today, however, people have filters, better cameras and digital storage allowing for a great deal of photos to be taken. With that, people have become artistic with their photos on Instagram this season as they harvest their turkeys.

We went through the recent turkeys already harvested in 2017 and found a handful of truly artful photos. These photos may have a unique angle, person, or background, or they might just capture a breathtaking moment. All-in-all, if it was worth sharing, we put it below for you to take a look.
