Just wondering how many of you turkey hunters are trapping for the turkeys benefit?

I would think the majority of land owners and leaseholders are probably doing predator management these days

2 years ago I trapped a small property and I took out 6 coyotes, 21 fox and unknown incidental catches of coon and possums. Our turkey population appears to have doubled.

I would love to get into trapping but I don’t have the time to check trap lines everyday

It’s definitely a lot of work…especially if you have a job.

Yep !!!

I was out of it for a lotta years due to work.  Got back in the game this past season a little bit.  But I plan a bit more of an all-out assault for the benefit of my turkeys THIS year.

Beginner trapper here. Been catching the crap outta coons and possums the last 3 years. Killed two toms this year and saw a group of 6 Jakes. Baby steps, but it's a start.

Started trapping several years ago. I enjoy trapping coyotes, fox and bobcats. I focus on coons and possums before and during nesting season. I definitely feel like our turkey population benefits from it some.
