    Strut Zone Gift List-12


    I asked guys in my hunting circle what they were looking for under the gift tree this year. Here’s what they said. Maybe it will give you a few ideas.

    Ron Magnano, a dog man and fall turkey hunter, said he wants GPS collars for his dogs, and that he needs three!

    Dennis Jellison, Mainer and English setter man — I put my Radar on his released pheasants when my setter boy was a pup — says he needs “a great predator call” for coyote control.

    These Spurs Are Made For Mounting-7


    We put gobbler spurs on the wall, hung with empty shotgun hulls, beards and tail fans.

    We string spurs up and wear them as hat bands, emblematic of our passion.

    We wear them around our necks.

    We hang them from rearview mirror supports.

    Should Staten Island's Turkeys Go?-8


    Wild turkeys and asphalt don't mix.

    As we last reported here on the Strut Zone, Jersey has a "turkey problem." Staten Island, home to roughly half a million people, and the most suburban of New York City's five boroughs, is also home to a bunch of wild turkeys.

    The place has a lot of history. Native American arrowheads have been found here. As pop culture goes, "The Godfather" was filmed at this location. And now wild turkeys are in the news.

    Jersey Turkeys Doing Damage-5


    How would you solve this problem, Strut Zoners?

    It's a common challenge these days: wild turkeys roam where they wish, often where food sources draw them in.

    Landowners, often non-hunters, and possibly unaware of the tremendous wildlife restoration story this great gamebird represents, consider them pests.

    Varmints. Trespassers. Litterbugs. Dirty birds.
