BSK, this reminds of my 'rats with feathers' thread couple weeks back. I've got only hit and miss sprouts of oats, I sowed 150lbs on about 1/3 acre and them turks have reduced it to dust. I wonder if I should re-sow this late, but I hate turn under what may still try and 'come up'. Any suggestions? I'm afraid to throw anything down on the surface after reading the thread today about lawnboy's brother. Thanks again for the P.M. If you cast down sunflower seeds to tide them turkeys over, would a GW regard this 'deer food' and cite a hunter for 'baiting'?

If it is true viable sunflower seed, I can't see how it would be baiting. I broadcast all my seed on top the ground.

I would still consider top-sowing those oats, especially if you can do so just a couple days before a rain.

when say viable sunflower seed, do you mean 'seed' sunflower seed? I was referring to some store bought 'bird seed' from Lowes. Just to get the turkeys onto something else. But if I 'feed' turkeys with something that deer don't eat and hunt in the same plot, am I 'hunting over bait' if the intended quarry is deer? I feel like these 'nuisance' turkeys are damaging my investment (they are) (hundreds of $$$and many hours) and I want to compensated for my losses. (I know that sounds ridiculous). Or have em netted. I'd love to mow em down like Rooster Cogburn did in True Grit with that Gatlin gun. That's how P.O.d I am about these turkeys. Help me out on this one, cause forgive me, I didn't know if deer considered sunflower seeds a foodsource or did the GW consider birdseed for non-target turkeys to baiting deer? ugggggggggh! here we go again. I'm starting to hate overlapping/vague laws that are left up the 'discretion' of the GW. 'Discretion', I feel, gives the lawman too much room to harass people and then, the accused has to prove himself innocent later at their own expense. Anyway, I won't get into all this, if you could just help me out on the sunflower seed for deer food question. thanks again BSK
