why was my turkey breast-meat stringy?

I suspect that it was because I chose a giant turkey. It was some kind of free-range, heritage model but I have had turkey thet turned out that way before and that was definitely a run-of-the-mill factory turkey.

Does the breast just go stringy over a certain size? I do not think that it was overcooked because it was quite moist and tender.

I never want that to happen again.
