Turkey trot…

Turkeys are running thick from mile marker 5 to mile marker 15 on County Road 8, east of Meeker. Groups of 10 to 15 turkeys, mostly hens, have been plentiful along area roads recently. Bill deVergie, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife area game manager in Meeker, said the high number of spottings is likely due to deep snow in the mountains, and that can push the turkeys to the roadsides to eat whatever is available along the sides of the bare roads and along the steep slopes next to the roads.
