  1. With all the snow and the difficulty to get around, suppose the turkey are being hit hard???

    I think everything, in the wildlife ream, will be affected by this winter weather event.:(

    I saw 6 deer in a CRP field browsing at noon today. Must be tough on them. Tonight will take a toll.
     
  5. I'd say they (the deer) are wearing out the cedar. I know the cardinals and the jays are wearing out my dogs food! :) I put cracked corn in the garage for a rooster I have that just wanders and the birds are cleaning house. I expect the cats to catch on quick... :)

    Now would be the time to put out some feed for the critters. Because like said this is surely going to take a toll on them.

    I've been feeding the birds since Monday. Haven't seen one Squirrel since last weekend, but saw three Deer while driving to town. I am certainly glad we had a heavy crop of acorns and other Mast for the "critters" to eat during this terrible Winter weather.

    It won't hurt any of the game species. It's a lot colder and much more snow north of KY and we have plenty of deer and turkeys.

    Turkeys are fine, they fly. If you want to help them, kill every coon, opossum and skunk you see. Nest predators are worse on birds.

    I bet there will be a lot of short bearded gobblers this spring.
