Why the spotty turkey decline?

Postby poorhunter » Wed Aug 14, 2019 7:10 am

I know we’ve talked about how there are places that have plenty of turkeys still, and others where there has been a drastic decline. Here’s a thought...someone else in another thread mentioned that alflotixin positive corn has been shipped out of Texas (for instance) to Tennessee (for instance). So this truckload if tainted corn is sent to a Walmart somewhere (say Waynsboro) and every Tom Dick and Harry that ships there goes and buys this corn and puts it out for deer hunting. By the tunnel all this corn is gone there’s no telling how many flocks have been decimated in that area. Same thing on a lesser scale may have happened in other areas. Corn is used so much in the last 10 years and there’s bound to have been some tainted batches that folks put out. I personally think this is a very likely scenario that tainted corn is the major culprit in the localized population drops in spotty areas.
