Glad to finally see some turkey poults running around. Not as many as I would like to see but better then last year. I have two hens showing up regularly one has two poults and the other has three. I continue to believe the biggest problem with the turkey population is the predators which I try my best to trap during the trapping season. I also work on habitat improvements which helps. I wish the LDWF would allow trapping for predators all the way up till turkey season. If you love to turkey hunt weather on public or private land it would be great to participate in some kind or predator control to help out our future turkey population.

LETUMGROW,Yep,predator control plus keeping away from flooding issues would DEFINITELY help re-stock the once-thriving wild turkey population in the Sherburne WMA!What used to be one of LA's finest WMA's as far as wild turkey populations goes,is now only a shell of what it used to be!I know the LAWLF did shoot bunch of hogs from helicopters a bunch of years ago but flooding issues no doubt drowned a bunch of young turkeys,possibly even quite a few adults did not survive flooding conditions!!Looks like ya got nice wild turkey population where ya hunt!!
