I’m over run with turkey this year. My whole family will be tasked with taking some out this year. They literally hear the feeder go off, come charging in and suck up all the corn in minutes.

Sort of a nice problem to have, compared to us here in Mason. We haven't seen a turkey on our place in 5 years! Sure wish I had to "shoot down" the population instead of constantly knocking down hogs!

Set your feeder a bit earlier before they come off roost in the morning. Not much you can do about the evening hunt though.

I counted a total of 47 during my last set two weeks ago.
