At the Time I stated there would never be enough Turkey in Iowa to hunt. BOY WAS I WRONG!
There are now more Turkey in Iowa than there are Pheasants. In fact they have almost become as much of a nuisance as our over population of Deer. There is a lot of debate as to whether the Turkey are stomping the pheasant eggs in the nest. But while I don't often see them I often hear the Turkey on the ridge a half mile from my house.
And see them in the bottoms along creeks where I used to see hundreds of pheasants.

We have plenty in the north part of the state. I must have seen five or six dozen on a 15 minute drive. If you don't want to see any, just try and hunt them.

Tons of them around here...The buggers wont get off the road sometimes
I think in the northeast in general, Turkeys have grown to almost nuisnance level. It's a shame in a way.

Turkey's, Geese, and Deer. They have all become a problem here. When is the Government going to learn it is not Mother Nature?
Yeah and they never go away either. Used to be the Geese would migrate, but there is a large population they call Resident Geese that stay all winter. There used to be a nice little county lake where I took my kids fishing. Now there are so many geese there that you can't walk for all the crap. I quit going up there about 15 yrs ago.

The Canadian Geese line up abreast and start across a small grain field and it looks like it's been hailed on. Can't sleep with our windows open at night because the darn critters never shut up. Makes me so happy to see out tax dollars at work. Now the farmers north of here are screaming because of the damage the Turkey's are doing. Not even going to mention what goes through my mind every time I have to swerve to miss a deer.
Chris I just saw on the news that Iowa has dropped from the second most likely state in the Nation to have a Deer/car collision to number 3. South Dakota has moved up to #2 and Iowa down to #3.Guess that's what thy call a Dubious Distinction?
