PEANUT BUTTER FOR TURKEYS??
« on: January 23, 2009, 03:56:57 PM »
Have tried a bottle of peanut butter screwed on to a tree near my feeder and the turkeys loved it. Anyone else had any luck with this? %^$^
I HAVE A SMALL RANCH IN EDWARDS COUNTY CLOSE TO ROCKSPRINGS,TEXAS.
I AM INTERESTED IN DISCUSING HUNTING ISSUES WITH OTHER HUNTERS IN THAT GENERAL AREA.

new one on me but i've seen turkeys eating pine needles before to stay alive and peanut butter probably tastes a lot better to them.  careful of the brand you use due to the salmonella poisoning out there in some peanut butter brands.
