You could build a net pen then feed them for a few days and then shut the door .this way you get the whole flock at once .one thing for sure they smarten up fast

The netting could be bought at game bird supply store .cutlers supply is a family run outfit you can trust for all your turkey wrangling needs .they will also have a net ,kinda like a landing net ,also if you plan to transport and relocate these bird the crates should be shallow in hight if not they will jump and jump and scalp them selfs causing massive damage to the top of there head till dead ,some people might place think foam or use a more forgiving card board box

Seeing that the dnr has issued a kill permit, it seems that how to get the job done really isn't the issue. Rather, how to handle the pr is.

Ask the customer what their priority is, then get it done and over with. The longer it drags out, the worse the pr will be.

SGS,

You really said a lot with that statement. The quicker the better on any job with PR issues.

Leave it to sqs to ask the right question at the right time. I took a twenty five minute ride to see for myself yesterday. Drove around in the brand new snow and finally went into the building. Never saw any tracks of anything so when I introduced myself to the gal behind the desk, she blew me away when she "Oh yeah, he's leaning against the back door".

Sure enough, here is this four foot high gobbler leaning up against this all glass door on the south side of the building. He took one look at me and the race was on. Now I don't care how much younger and faster you are, that turkey could outrun a pregnant woman looking for the ladies room. There is no way we make a nickel on this job so why can't I just let it go?

Come on now Pesky. My wife's favorite food in the whole wide world is turkey. If she reads your post I'll be running after the goofy gobbler for weeks.

Is he roosting off property where you would be able to drop him out of the tree at 1st light without an audience? Just a thought.

Paul if you would have taken my advice you would have caught that turkey. Depending on how it went after the capture on which of you got paid.

Mike. it's a retirement complex. How many times do you think I'd get called out there to remove a Conlbear from some old guys arm? Or even worse, their head.

It isn't like we are starving for work Paul. Dont worry yourself about those turkies, focus on the wave of bat calls on the way and don't waste time on junk calls like this.

I'm way ahead of you Mike. I never gave it a second thought. I just thought this was a really funny call and some of the responses were even funnier!
