These territorial Kansas turkeys run this whitetail deer out of their stomping grounds.
When fall comes around whitetails get very territorial and will chase off other bucks and chase after does to breed. Enter spring time and deer no longer have the first say, however, these territorial Kansas turkeys will make sure the whitetails know!
At least that’s the case with these Kansas birds that are fighting off more than just other toms.
Rio Grande turkeys are the predominant sub species of Kansas that inhabit the western part of the state after they were introduced in the 1960s. Eastern turkeys also live in the eastern part of the Kansas, but aren’t as prevalent in the state.
The whitetail gave it whorl, but the trio of birds eventually runs the deer off.
