We need help, quick. We thought earlier this year how cool it is to have
wild turkeys around. That coolness has gone with the invasion of the beasts
into the lope and watermelon patch! The *&^%$#@! critters are feasting on
3-4 lopes and a couple of watermelons each day.
Any advise appreciated, I lost the heart for hunting a few years ago, but I
find it returning rapidly.
Not necessarily. Where I live, turkeys have be salted into the hills,
which was their natural habitat--150 years ago. Now it's my backyard.
We've yet to figure what the point of putting them there is,
discharging firearms is illegal, there's never hunting allowed, the
entire area is populated, and the birds raise hell with everyone's
yards. Gee, we had wolves and grizzly bears around here too, as late
as 1920--I don't hear anyone talking about rebuilding the griz
population in the neighborhood....
Then there were sabertooth cats at one point....
Fortunately there's still mountain lions. Maybe they can catch some of
i had nearly the same problem w/ rabbits and deer this year. i put up 10'
tposts with rabbit fence along the bottom and a fencing to keep deer out up
if it were up to me, i'd have those turkey replace what they're eating w/
their own hide (wild turkey is very tasty). i would've done the same w/ the
rabbit and deer but i didn't want to listen to all the wife's griping about
it so......the fence was the lesser of all evils....
