Predators In the Turkey Woods

If you are a turkey hunter, you're a predator. You've bought your license, you're ready to punch your tag and report success. You'll share that success by showing a nice photo of your bird to your friends, and you'll enjoy a great meal. But you're not the only predator in the woods during turkey season. Far from it. The vast majority of predators will do none of those things. They will kill every day, and they won't play by the rules you play by.

This week's column, published in the Olean Times Herald (Olean, NY), tells what is going on in the turkey woods, not just during the month of May, but every month of the year. Yes, you already know, but lots and lots of people don't. And they're the ones who have no idea that hunters are one of countless predators, and we play a role no other predator plays not only for the enjoyment of the hunt, but also for the sake of the species.
