12 inches my wife wanted off the driveway. Anyhow, this snow affects the wild turkey way more than it does me. One thing a heavy snow will do is cover up a lot of the food turkeys usually scratch for. They need to find other things to eat, and obviously one of this things is going to be cow poop. Who wouldn’t opt for a poop sandwhich or burrito or quesidilla. Poop is an excellent late winter snack. Dung, poop, pies, pattys, excrement, solid waste or number 2. Label it whatever you want, turkeys will dig through it for any corn or grain the cattle passed through. Flip and pie and look for the prize, kinda like you did as a kid with the cereal box. Good stuff is always on the bottom of the box or patty.
Point is if snow blankets the ground during your spring adventures, head for the poop. Cattle yards can be turkey magnets, and sometimes when ranchers are calving you can get permission to chase the birds in those spots until it warms up and they disperse. Can’t find the birds? Head for the poop.
I’m done with this blog. Enjoys these poop eaters getting killed early season in Nebraska. Cheers.
