DeerCast News: TFT Efforts Target Nest Predators
Research funded by Turkeys for Tomorrow shows that the timely removal of nest predators before turkey breeding season can significantly impact nest success.
This insight drove the founders of the American Sportsmans Forever organization to put together the Howard Co. First Annual Save The Turkeys Raccoon Tournament. Shane Burr, co-founder and board member of American Sportsmans Forever, said that just seeing a lack of turkeys over the past few years on their hunting properties prompted the group to want to take action and come up with ways they could help. "The predator hunt was centered around getting people to realize that there has been a decline in the turkey population," Burr said, "We wanted to educate them on some of the reasons, one of which is nest predation, primarily by raccoons. The decrease in the number of people trapping has impacted that."
