Just keep feeding corn. You could add hen scratch to the feeder also.

Thats a Gobbler. We always use a mix of corn, maize, and sunflower seed and we have always had great results with turkey coming into feed.

Don't SHOOT!!! I'm a young-un, let me grow up. Looks like about 21/2-3 beard.

To the other part of your question, yes you can see a bearded hen from time to time.

throw some milo in your feeder along with the corn. little goes a long way. help keep them around longer.

that is what we do. Pigs and deer can clean up all the corn but not all the milo. Deer actually prefer milo if it is in a pile. I have shot enough big toms and actually prefer the younger birds. They eat a lot better and you save the big ones for breeding.

Turkey love milo, so do deer, pigs and dove. Wheat seeds are good too but it's really light and blows in the wind. If you want to go lower cost, get bulk mixed bird feed and mix it with the corn.


It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

That is a Gobbler but not the longest beard.

I have a couple 55 Gallon Drum Turkey Feeders filled with a bird food mix that I put out this time of the year. Turkeys will start feeding on bugs pretty shortly, it also helps to simply run a harrow or an spike aerator and fertilize. That will start new growth and attract bugs.
