While I was hiking on the main trail of the WMA (Wildlife Management Area) in Minnesota I was in, I came across this pile. Originally, I only found 1 of the smaller skulls, and totally thought it was a turkey. I know nothing about any of this stuff, and the feathers appeared brown in color and it seemed like a larger bird.

Later that day I texted a few buddies of the find, and Tom said finding the beak would be a cool find. Well, on my way out, I back tracked a bit and went back to the spot to poke around with a stick. I uncovered 1 more small skull, and a bigger one.
