Seems MeJasonT also is describing driven hunts, where stops and beaters force game toward a line of shooters. He's right, that ain't hunting. Hunting is when your dog sees you packing requisites and he starts hopping around with anticipation. . .or he just likes that squeeze bottle of watered down honey!

...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
when I want to shoot turkey I go to wallmart. then I look at the turkey and say awe shoot! just look at that price this week....then either miss or grab the one I want. I prefer the ones that have been smoking for a while they are easyer to catch in the netting they have got wound up in. it seem much easyer this way and cheeper too, along with no ticks&lime dezeze. I can also grab a frozen Margarita and some oil filters & oil while im there for the wifes car, and of coarse some extremely soft toilet paper for my pampered ass.
these wild turkeys are not harvested in a staged turkey shoot where the birds are staked out and cannot evade the emanate danger of #4 or 6 shot being blasted their way. You have to go out and like said hide behind a tree or create some kind of camouflaged blind from available ground cover and hope you located yourself near a game trail they frequent or actually walk through the woods scouring the underbrush in search of them. making it a 50/50 chance between hunter and hunted.

Re 'railroad car' photo: I like the simple jack near bottom left - have a bunch of similar but square based, 'some kind of alloy' stands from metal dumpster. 5/8"-11 threaded rod & nut added. Surprised by the steepness of the pictured thread. Remarkable that a device so simple and logical will lift a corner/side/end of a boxcar, if indeed that's how it could have been used. Ramp, wedge, screw - principles wonderful and indispensable.

The big 'estate' shoots often have contracts to supply game dealers, once the guests and estate staff have had their choice, these dealers sell to top restaurants and other retail outlets.
The few not 'picked-up' rarely get a chance to rot as natural 'recycling' by scavengers is quite effective, it's also an important food source that has allowed the reintroduced Red Kite the thrive in some areas.
The bigger issue is the breed to shoot industry that releases huge numbers of introduced species that cause other problems, Pheasant's cause a number of road traffic accidents and deer park escapee introduced deer are estimated to cause 20 human road deaths in the UK annually.
