042 - Wild Turkey Habitat Management Tips with Bob Eriksen
Jul 16th, 2015 by The Turkey Hunter
In this episode of The Turkey Hunter Podcast, Bob Eriksen, Regional Wildlife Biologist with the National Wild Turkey Federation, shares with us some tips that we can put to use on our hunting properties to improve the habitat for our turkeys.
We discuss prescribed fire, planting crops, improving brood and nesting habitat, wildlife habitat management plans, and cost sharing programs available for landowners who would like a plan for their properties.
If you want to hear, see, and kill more wild turkeys, then you need to improve the habitat on your hunting property so that you'll increase the population and your opportunities for harvesting a trophy bird. Bob teaches us a great deal of what we need to know to make those improvements.
