Default Freezing Turkeys - How Long?

What would be the max time in Deep Freeze for the typical Enhanced Turkeys that are on sale. $.49-$.69 /lb right now? 6 months?1 year? Thinking of stocking up on some since they are half the price of Chicken right now.

I bought a dozen or so already frozen last year when they hit $0.59 and held the last of them in the freezer for 10 months, did not notice any problems.

Wife says 6 months for a self defrosting freezer and a year for a manual defrost type. I am thinking a chunk of meat the size of a turkey would not be bothered by the self defrosting cycle and go for a year ok..... But I'm not arguing with the wife, LOL

I usually stock up this time of year as well. I usually plan to have them all finished up by the next Thanksgiving. So, the longest I usually keep one in the deep freeze is for a year.

Turkey has about the same as chicken and beef, but not as much

For us here in the southeast, it's just our (upscale) regional grocery, Publix generic store brand available as plain or enhanced, frozen. From about now thru new years' they usually have 12-15 pounders around $0.59 or +18 pounders for a little less, two per customer per visit. I don't shop at Walmart but I've heard about the same deal. Already have 4 in the freezer and 2 rain checks.
