i didn't have a chance to find out. turkeys wiped my 3 acres of beans out by early october. my verdict is unless you have a lot of acres, turkey will wipe out grains very early. i don't know if 6 acres would have been enough to be honest

i was jumping on the atv 3 times a day to chase them off the fields on the weekends. i had approx 20 turkeys. i WILL get a fall tag next year. they don't move to my area until after spring season. the snow pushes them lower in the winter and they migrate back in summer. 20 birds eat a lot of beans

I feel your pain. Turkeys wipe out all three of my plots first round. I reseeded and barely got them sprouted. Ever tried stakes with tin pie plates strung on them so they flap in the breeze? I was told that will keep the turkeys out of the plots long enough for them to grow. I'm trying it this spring for sure!

duane, i got the beans to 3' tall. the turkeys at all my pods/beans at maturity. i wouldn't want to scare the turkeys/deer off at that time of the year w/ pie tins. maybe i should, but that's youth season and bow season?

Yeah, tough choice. Guess it comes down to if it's better to have the turkeys in there or the deer at that point I imagine. I got some of the brassicas to come up which the turkeys didn't touch much, but the deer wipe them out too quickly so would have been good o have something else in with it. Made for a good turkey season though I have to say.
