We've got a wild flock of
turkeys in the woods behind us, and sometimes we can hear them gobble.
Turkey season started in our
area this week, and just for the fun of it I researched "How to catch a
turkey" for a few minutes.
First off, I'm pretty sure
there might be some laws against catching a turkey, which is what
stopped me from actually trying it, but if you find yourself in a
survival situation the most easy and simple method involves a 50 gallon
Bait the drum with some
crushed corn sitting on top with the bottom up. Check on it
a couple times a day, and replenish the corn when needed. Do this
everyday for 3 or 4 days, and on the 5th day flip the drum around. The
turkey won't be able to see the new opening and will flop right in. Not
having enough space to spread its wings will keep it there till you
next check on the trap.
