I am a homesteader. When I first moved to my property, I started a gaggle of turkeys and for about two years regularly fed them in the morning. It was nice because my kids got to see them and around the holiday season I was able to have a nice meal for my family. I used to be able to have turkey to eat as opposed to having to go to the grocery store.
They have since vanished, my guess would be neighbors also hunting them, natural predators, etc.
What I would like to do is encourage the turkeys that I see roaming on the other side of the river to stop by regularly. I have thrown corn on my side of the river with no luck. I imagine turkeys might not like to cross rivers.
Is there a good method to get the turkeys onto my land? I have considered building a bridge, but I would prefer not to.
