I have been asked to catch four wild turkeys ( un harmed ). They are not very wild . They roost on pallets behind one residence and go two doors down were a person feeds them. The home owner says that you can approach them and they don't seem to care. I am pretty sure that I can arrive with a large landing net and scoop one bird. After that the remaining birds will be a little too wary . Sence they roost on pallets I was wondering if I could go after dark with a bright light and expect to scoop the rest. I have no experience catching pigeons or any other bird at night. I was hopeful that some one with experience could lend some advice.

#2 Scoop one bird put it in a repeating bird trap as a decoy bird add a little corn and water and good things should happen ??????

thanks Bob

I think a large cage and concentrated feed will have the best chance once they get used to it being there and will walk in.

Since it is a game bird make sure you have the required permits.

Approach caught wild turkeys very carefully. Their wings and spurs will hurt you majorly.
