Aun: Drink to long life of this wild turkey
Tuesday, March 29, 2005
BY FRED J. AUN
For the Star-Ledger
Preliminary results from a five-year gobbler tracking study in Sussex and Warren counties show about 25 percent of the birds' deaths were caused by hunters.

That, of course, means 75 percent of the turkeys died from other causes, including disease, the jaws and claws of animal predators and the wheels and bumpers of motor vehicles. The fact that most turkeys croak well before they reach 5 years old shows it's a tough life.

They should put just as much effort into black bears, since they can injure or kill people
