Angry Darn turkeys

This is the first year I tried planting a food plot. It was very small in a secluded place. The turkeys scratched it up and ate everything including the fertilizer!! Anybody ever had this problem?

time to start turkey hunting.what did you plant?they have stuff called chuffa? the turkeys love it.but they also like clover too
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

turkeys will eat any seed you put down. I've seen them just wipe out a new lawn planted around a house. Once its up and growing it has a chance. pie pans owls will help keep them off until it takes but it may keep the deer out as well which you may not want this time of year. in high deer density areas they use electric fence and scented fence to keep the deer out till the plot takes. a food plot i found out isn't a single year deal. it takes a few to get it doing what you want.
