Turkey infestation

Postby DIY_guy » Wed Oct 07, 2015 2:45 pm

While shooting my bow in the yard this afternoon, the turkeys showed up again. I used the cam mounted on the bow and kept walking up to them to shoo them away (out dog is a fan of both eating and rolling in turkey crap) Last week so many roosted in the dead tree behind my bow target the rotten tree broke under the strain. Yes the fall season is open and yes I was practicing with broadheads but I didn't buy a tag for this zone plus one of my neighborsy would loose her mind if she knew I killed one of them.

In the spring they steal the winemaking supplies from the mulberry tree with their willing accomplices the deer. looking out the window 20 feet from the house.
The joy is in the planing and doing.

Dang, that's a lot of turkeys.


Are you bringing them in with corn or something?

Great video!

Only archers are fool enough to want to make a composite with natural materials and man made materials, and then bend it repeatedly...

You need a "compost heap". In this "compost heap" you need about 6-10 pounds of tannerite in a brightly-colored container. When they all come to hang out around your "compost heap", you touch it off with your deer rifle. That should take care of quite a few of them. Might make a mess out of the yard though. It's biodegradable so it's all good. ;)
