    Turkeys seldom ever travel alone, and are usually in groups of six or more. If they get into a big enough flock, then they really could become dangerous. I think the best solution is to give land owners the right to kill any turkeys that invade their property.

    Didn't read the article, only the headline.

    Is the solution to eat them?

    Ben Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird, rather than the bald eagle

    Perhaps Jamaica Plain should just declare several more Thanksgivings through the year. That should take care of the turkeys.

    I think this is kind of funny. @Flashback - my approach would be similar to yours except I'd use a scoped pellet gun. No one would hear my shots and I'd be having a good turkey dinner every week. Yum, yum.

    My approach would be .410 shotgun with bird shot loads.
