    Lets see when elk take over mule deer winter range or wolves displaced "eat" coyotes/moose and take over there habitat its not mans management its habitat. We/man brought in the turkeys 20 years ago and because there is more money to IDFG were over run.

    [QUOTE=1pheas4;197344]How many pheasants would you typically see in the spring? Not sure about what was the # of pheasants in the spring this was a winter area for pheasants for miles around. The turkeys have pushed out the pheasants from the little remaining nesting cover that's left. Its to late here but if you want pheasants don't let them bring in turkey.

    My point is that good pheasant habitat isn't good turkey habitat and good turkey habitat isn't good pheasant habitat. Sure their range will overlap in transition zones but if you have lots of turkies and few pheasants it's because you have good turkey habitat.

    I agree that turkies out compete pheasants for prime nesting cover where their ranges overlap though.
