ODW transplanted turkey on an area around our places years ago. The varmints picked them off one at a time until there were none left. We have trapped that area intensely for several years, and the turkey are back. I'm hit or miss on them being there. Great for turkey season, but it sucks during deer season. They know the minute the feeder kicks on, and clean it up in a few minutes. I only feed in the winter months, so don't know what they do or where they go in the summer.
