Did anyone say they needed wild turkeys???????????
How many and how soon can you pick them up?
We currently have have 150-200 here on the farm including little ones. By late fall we will have over 200.
Years ago (15 +/_) a couple were really neat to see around. Then there were maybe 10-12 all the time. That was still ok. From there it went to 50 then 75 then 100 and you get the picture. They actually will eat out of the cattle feeders when we feed even with the cattle eating they jump right in. They will go into the barns looking for anything to eat. They are not afraid of people. They crap all over everywhere, all the time. The only positive thing they do is pick thru the manure piles enough that it does help the manure breakdown faster. They are supposed to eat bugs but we certainly still have plenty in the fields and lawns.
We'll even help you load but you must bring a closed in trailer as we do not want any to escape!LOL
Forgot to mention that most of them are so tough eating that many of the hunters are not interested as the breast meat was the only part edible and many are still tougher than a pair of old leather boots. Not to mention most say they taste the same too. A few people really actually say they are good eating.
