Could Large turkey numbers affect deer movement etc?
I hunt a southern state and the family farm is great for turkey hunting. The only problem is that in recent years it seems like I see less and less deer. We havn't taken a deer off of it since the 09 season. I just talked to a neighbor that runs cattle on the farm and he said that over the last few months he had not seen many deer but TONS of turkeys. My question is could the large turkey numbers be pushing the deer to other properties? I know the deer don't care for the cattle being there and have done everything I could to stop them from being there but its a necessity. Thanks for the help!
