The Ark Turkey Trial, 2021 is Ark’s Thanksgiving event. This year, it’s the fifth Turkey Trial event and it starts today on November 23, 2021.

Ark: Survival Evolved players will have until December 7, 2021, to enjoy Thanksgiving’s increased rates, new Chibi’s, and some awesome skins.

What Is The Turkey Trial?

The Ark Turkey Trial is a voluntary event, so you don’t have to take part if you don’t want to. However, if you want to get yourself some cool rewards, it’s worth getting involved.

During Turkey Trial 5, players will be part of a wide-scale scavenger hunt for Super-Turkeys. You can harvest Super Turkey Wishbones to craft a Turkey Costume, Ugly Sweater skins, or summon a DodoRex.

Be careful though, depending on what creatures are near you when you’re chasing a Super Turkey, you’ll need to fight them off too.

It could be a timing issue. Depending on the OS and where the servers are hosted, they could be behind and therefore not showing. I would give it 24 hours in total just to be sure. It’s a real pain though!
