This was very perplexing to me. Who and what did it, was it human or did some lucky predators get into a group of turkey and have a field day. I'm leaning torwards the former. So in the interest of interesting comments and theories I have a few questions.
1) Look closely, is this the way turkey are normally field dressed? I mean you can actually make out the sternal keel in the photo on the bottom, on the center bird . Do hunters cut the meat off of the breast and leave the bone, in the field?
2) If this was a predator(s), the only individuals I can think of that could take down a turkey would be a Bobcat or some Coyotes. Could this be the case in this situation?
3) If this was a hunter(s), why leave the carcasses lying and rotting so close to the campsite? Talk about no respect for others.
4) Again, if these were game for someone it seems like a lot of waste. Isn't there something all of those feathers and parts could be used for?
