We see deer and cows together all the time here. There were 2 BIG whitetail bucks on the farm up the road that stayed in with the cattle. One was 16 points and the other was like 12 or more. Heard that the owners son got the 12+ one. They graze in with the cattle all the time, I think it is like protection for them. Thank goodness we don't have feral hogs up here. But we see flocks of turkeys out with the cows all the time too. 5-25 at a time different fields. Especially see them on one dairy that is way up in the mountainous area... flocks of turkeys hanging out with the heifers at the silage carts getting the corn....

Leased place I had for 30 years had an enviable number of does and big bucks commonly intermingled with the cattle. Downsized to a small "retirement" farm a few years ago and would love to eliminate ALL of the 100 plus turkeys here. Especially the ones who roost on my porch.

Anytime from March 25th to May 15th season is open and your more than welcome. We have some unbelievable turkey hunting and no one really hunts them. I like hearing them gobble and screwing with them with a crow call.

ROTFL
Anybody traveling through my neck of the woods is more than welcome to take ALL of mine gratis. Fact is, I'll pay you to do so! I must admit I like to hear them talk but that's where the romance ends.
Otherwise terrific nearby neighbor puts out corn for the damned things. :roll:
