Turkeys have leveled a full scale assault on my place this year and they're hammering the corn. Looks like turkey will be on the menu this year, I hate them.

They are everywhere. I see at least 75 every weekend- and they sit there and wait for the feeders to go off, then zoom from feeder to feeder vacuuming up the corn. Never had this many- wet year helped, I guess.

Fried turkey is even better than deer meat.

Fried, cubed breast meat. Is delish. Throw the legs away.

Waste of good game meat. Excellent for stock, particularly gumbo.

I run one of my feeders only at night so that there will be corn around even after turkeys come through and eat everything from the other feeder.

Most turkeys I've ever seen in my life have been in Winters, TX. And that has repeated itself, annually for 8 years.

About 20 years ago I stopped right before the Bluff Creek bridge that is about 3 miles south of Winters to take a pic of the creek sign. As we started back up, my son said look at those turkeys, there must have been a 100 down in that creek bed about 50 yards from the highway. Everytime we cross that creek I look, but haven't seen any there since that day.
