First off Cograt's to your wife. Cooking a wild turkey is just the same as a farm raised bird except you will want to stay away from the legs as they are very tough due to all the walking they do. It is best to use the legs to make soup with as simmering the soup will make the meat much more tender. If you want you can put a few apple's and onion's in the cavity it adds a nice flavor to the meat. I have done this several times to both turkeys and pheasent's
From what I have been told you should not eat the apple's or onion after the bird is done I have no idea why but I have never eating them afterwards I sure cant see why you could not eat them if you wanted too.

I use a flour breading and deep fry cchunks of the breast like chicken nuggets.
Flour, black pepper, poultry season, paprika, salt, season all.

I have aslo marinated the breast chunks in Italian Dressing and then on the grill. ( I love it this way)
