In my neck of the woods (New England) people hunt and eat them all the time. I don't like them as I like white meat and wild turkey is dark meat and gamier.
I get invited to game dinners where the hosts say "oh, wild turkey is great, you just have to know how to prepare it". From there, they explain a recipe and method that kills the inherent, gamey taste of it.
IMHO, if you have to smoke something to make it edible, I'm out.
