Here in Ohio, people have noticed a decline in turkeys. Agreed, the coyote is at the top of the food chain. Lets not forget about the raccoon. IMHO, not many are hunted any more. So that make there numbers go way up. Raccoons, may be a big probelm, with eating eggs of the turkey. This is what I belive about what the scientists and experts say. If some one has a job, and wants to keep it. When that some one has to do a servey, that servey will come out the wat there boss wants it to. At one time, maybe you could beleive the serveys. Today, the findings seem to be so far out, it make you shake your head and wonder.
