In eastern co. the turkeys are limited to basically the river bottoms and there isn't alot of area so if they were otc there would be an army out there. There are lots of areas in the mountains that are otc but the turkeys are hard to find and have much more habitat. We can have one otc license and 2 if you draw a second one. The public areas out east are limited so they manage the hunters through the draw.
At least in my area there are far fewer turkeys the higher in elevation that you go. I'm at about 6500 ft. About ten years ago or so they began with 10 tags in the spring and i think now they are up to 30, so at least here it is a population issue.
I will admit, I love deer plots.
I love planting... even the garden at home.
What I do not like are high cost farm implements.
I found myself in need of a cultipacker for clover and other small seed - but could not find a decent deal on a small unit.
OK, fine... I will make one!
The materials were very simple... some plastic corrugated sewer drain pipe, some metal, 2 bearings and some concrete and you are in business!
I cut the pipe, in this case, to 46" wide - as I intended to pull this one...
