Jason Hardin is a wildlife biologist who serves as the Turkey Program Leader for Texas Parks and Wildlife. Here he shares his thoughts about the value of predator control to boost turkey populations. He recognizes that there may be a place for managing predation, but points out landowners' need to first focus on providing space and usable habitat for the birds, and second, the need for them to understand that killing many major turkey predators, including crows and birds of prey, is illegal.
