what's up with turkeys magnetizing toward cattle farms? Is it just because the WMA I hunt is surrounded by cow fields and turkeys seek refuge there? I can think of 4 different places where turkeys spend all day on cattle farms right up against WMA land. Most of the time, they roost on or very close to the WMA and then fly down onto private land. Happened this morning while deer hunting, I knew it was going to happen because of the lay of the land, but it was cool to watch em all fly down in front of me. If I had remembered to bring a call, maybe I could have steered the flock a bit. These birds preferred a cow field over a fresh cut corn field.|
Just wondering if anyone else notices this or if it's more specific to the place I hunt. Are cow farms usually a turkey magnet?
