Does anyone have suggestions for wild turkeys
Okay so here we go another year of the garden of eaten.I am used to handling the deer.Have several methods for them.. But this year we are being over ran by wild turkeys we get several groups numbering from 3 to 34.The snow is melting and they total anything green.Including the yews,junipers, even the muhgo pines.We just found a few bulbs peeking up nest to our water garden, so now the concern is about the beginning of the green sprouts being cleaned out.
These goofy birds have pecked away inches of blue foam board, they come up on the deck and peck at their reflections,, lol and like geese they can crap alot(sure its free fertilizer).Real special out on the deck.They even find ways to get up into the sunflower seed we put out for the little birds.They hit the feral cats dishes right off, and well the sedums on the roof have taken some pretty good hits since melt down started.Okay and then there is nothing quite as special as looking out your window to see several turkeys trying to eat the stone and wood on the window ledge.We have tried baiting them further down the road as well, it does not work.Lately we have taken to throwing snowballs and firecrackers at them.
There have been several suggestions, but its not legally turkey season here and wild turkey is tough dark meat no matter how ya cook it.
Anyone have suggestions?
