Roger Culpepper Offers Advice for Eliminating Predators
Why trap raccoons? As Roger Culpepper says in the video, "The turkeys appreciate it . . ."
Raccoons are among the many egg-eating predators out there. Wildlife management on your property can help wild turkeys thrive better.
As the late great Lovett E. Williams, Jr. wrote in his classic book The Art & Science of Wild Turkey Hunting, "Raccoons are not only serious egg predators, they are a problem also with game food plantings and automatic game feeders by eating large quantities of feed and planted seed and sometimes damaging mechanical feeders."
