Ep. 4: Why Turkey Habitat Matters with Randy Milligan

Play Episode


In this episode, I’m chatting about turkey habitat with my good buddy, Randy Milligan. Randy owns a little over 800 acres in Eastern Kansas. He spends most of his free time working on the property figuring out how to maximize the amount of turkeys and the size of bucks there.  We talk about what turkeys need to thrive, what they prefer, and how we can use that to our advantage while hunting.  We then turn the conversation to some of the issues currently facing wild turkey populations, and what matters in maintaining healthy populations.
