We have a major problem with turkeys destroying our fall and spring food plots that we plant for deer.  It often takes 3 or 4 reseedings to establish even a small amount of growth.  Any suggestions on how to keep the turkeys out.

Thanks

lol, usually you hear about hogs destroying food plots, why not just put up a fence around it until it grows?

Because turkeys can fly! Ask around and find some food plot crops that don't attract turkeys, I doubt if they like everything a deer likes. There must not be many food plots in your area, if you can get something to grow the deer will be all over it. Deer could be doing some damage to new growth as well.

You're right there aren't a lot of food plots in our area, but there are a lot of turkeys.  We have a 3000 acre tract and we rode thru the other day and counted 82 turkeys, so you can imagine what they can do to a food plot.  We usually use human hair to keep deer out until the food plot gets big enough.  I'll check with the local feed stores and see if they know of any seeds that turkeys won't eat. Thanks.
