EXACTLY! They never last at my house either.

You just missed thanksgiving.....but turkey works for Christmas dinner as well.

Call your local game warden/resource officer and ask about the Nuisance Wildlife Management laws in your state. Yes those birds are beautiful and I like having them around as well, however, they will not damage property.

Eat him, then put out some corn. Another will show up. Maybe he won't scratch your RV. If he does, eat him and repeat.

The dogs won't let them near the house....but there is plenty in the creek. This was a couple days ago on the deer camera.

WOW! We had the exact same problem a few years back.
We kept our previous coach at a large storage facility and one day we returned to find those same scratches all over the bay door that was painted nice shiny black and nothing on the grey painted areas. It took us a while to realize their were turkeys in the area and we finally drew the conclusion that one was fighting himself.
Because we needed to continue storing the coach there, we sewed up a couple "pillowcases" that we slid over the black doors anytime is was stored. It was an easy solution and worked perfectly.

That's what you get for keeping your coach so CLEAN! Use it, drive down some dirt roads, and park it until spring, the shine goes away, and so does the turkey!

Although I'm really in the slow cooked at X temperature crowd!

We had problems this past summer with bluebirds doing the same on mirrors and windows. The owl helped. The other problem was with wild turkeys putting holes in our water hoses.

Yep, had a VERY expensive, wild night in a Taiwan bar on a business trip a number of years ago that was centered on a pricey bottle of the stuff.

I go to the coach this morning to get something, and there is the turkey standing at the same spot looking at his reflection and puffing up his feathers while making some gurgling noises. I stood up 6-8 feet from him, and he did not bother to move. He spends most of the day around the coach, pretending to be a watchman or a partner in it?
I think we build the house on his ancestral territory ?

Try putting a couple of CD disc around the area. Birds don't like the reflection.
