Outdoor Hall of Fame member J. Wayne Fears discusses how to improve your wild turkey population through habitat management by simply creating opening on 10% of your hunting property.
You will find that hens build their nests around opening. This gives them the ability to see predators, and also provide nutrition with the abundance of insects, both for the mature turkeys and the young offspring. Opening provide strut zones for gobblers in the spring to attract mating hens.
There are many types of opening other than fields and food plots. Fire brakes and logging roads also constitute opening.
