Turkey Thermometer Thigh?

This will be my second thanksgiving dinner I'm making this year. Last year I didn't use a thermometer. This year I bought one.
Where do you place a meat thermometer in turkey roasting? In the thigh?
Is the meat thermometer supposed to stay in the turkey in the oven?
Any recommendations are welcomed.

Put a meat thermometer in your turkey before you put it in the oven! If the turkey is stuffed, place the thermometer tip inside the stuffed cavity. If itís not stuffed, put the tip of themeat thermometer in the thigh muscle just above and beyond the lower part of the thigh bone pointing toward the body. Donít let it actually hit the bone.

you need to see the instructions on the thermometer packing

if you do not have those - then play it safe -
and only stick it in for a quick reading (until it stops moving)
then pull it out
