I've got the same issue.....and love it!quote author=NavyChief08 link=topic=222807.msg2963667#msg2963667 date=1514971672]
Ok so this is going to sound dumb as *censored* especially since I'm a hunter, but what the hell do you do if you have a huge turkey problem on your property. I own 15 acres north of Kettle Falls and at last count I have 64 turkeys. These things don't move if a shoot a .22 or a 12 gauge to scare them off. I can literally walk 10 feet up to these damn birds before they decide to move along.

Youth hunt - great idea!

As a backup, I have a friend looking to do his first archery turkey hunt. I'd be happy to drive him over and sit with him but kids first!

You could also enlist some people for the fall/winter season (next year) and try to put some fear in them before they decide your place is a good spot to spend the winter.
Fish hard, hunt harder!

I'd be more than happy to take care of some of that problem.

So many free days, so few fish....

You must not ever had a turkey problem,they poop everywhere,step in it ,every time you go out,then drag it back in your house not good.I have turkey in my yard every winter , but I live in town so no hunting sucks.

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

That would be a good thing for youth hunters. My son went out last year first time and I got some rude people when asked for some permission for him only. We never did shoot a single shot last year. This year Im gonna try and get his sister in on the mentoring program. Maybe with 2 kids I might be able to get it done. Gotta love the wild pets some people get.. glad to see you are different.

Since this America  and capitalism rules Id charge an access fee. Forget haveing inexperienced hunters shooting close to your house  it s an unnessary liability. 50 bucks a bird seems about right.

As someone whos only hunted for Turkey once and is currently looking for opportunities for spring, this sounds awesome. I know m, maybe not a real hunt but a great opportunity to bag one bird, and practice skinning/gutting.

Feel free to send me a message. :)
