How do you get rid of buzzards?!!


Ok. This is kinda of a long story but I will try to shorten it up for you.

My grandfather owns 100 acres here in MS. When he first first bought it from a guy who owned his own timber company, he noticed a lot of buzzards hanging around. (when i say alot i mean over 100) He didn't think anything of it. Thought something died but they would eventually move on.

Well since he bought it this past spring these buzzards have produced the following problems:

1) he rented bulldozers to clear the land and the buzzards ate the foam out of the seats. Cost him over $200

Even put a trash bag over the seat, they pulled it off and ate the seat

2) bought a brand new tractor - put a tarp on the seat of it, they crapped all over it

3) ate laminated sign off his fence that had his address on it

4) and the BIGGEST problem-

I had bought a $40 blind at Walmart and put it out. It was only hunted in twice by my dad.

Well my dad hunted in it on Saturday evening. Well we went back Monday afternoon on the 4wheeler to check our camera and my dad looks at me and asks where is the ground blind.

I thought it was further up the road, but he insists we passed it. Well come to find out my blind is gone. Nowhere to be found. The only thing laying there was the white tag on the ground like a tag on a mattress. My Coleman chair was laying on the ground. And a bunch of buzzard tracks.

The buzzards ate the whole ground blind! In under 2 days!!!!
The zippers, the poles were even gone! My dad said the buzzards knew it was a cheap blind so they put it out of its misery.

We found the bag that the blind came in and for the stakes and it was in shambles too.

Just wondering has anyone had anything like this happen to them or was Hitchcock right?

We have (most ive counted was 162) that roost in the trees on a ridge our drive way goes down. Have never had this problem. In fact its pretty neat to watch them come in at dark all at once. They dont bother anything and the kids like to stalk them with Red Rider bb guns

Buzzards are federally protected birds FTR, but I've heard a 30.06 will turn one into a feathery explosion.

I appreciate everybody's seriousness in this matter.



Gotta laugh to keep from crying.

Called game warden since they were federally protected and it's a hefty fine to kill them. He came down and shot two and hung them up. That kept them away for awhile.

Game warden told us that buzzards have caused part of a chicken plant to close down in the area they were so bad. They were eating the roofing shingles.

It's just frustrating. I wouldnt mind coexisting with them but they are getting out of hand and going out of their way to be disrespectful. They will pay the price when the season gets over.

But like I told my dad, you're gonna need an Oozie Bc they are not just gonna let you just sit there and pop 10 of them off. They're gonna elevate. You could kill 2 a day for the next three months and still not kill all of them.

It's that many. My grandpaw calls the place "buzzard roost"

Put out a beef or deer or hog carcass with some of that "temic" (sp) poison in it, then burn what's left, feathers and all? Just don't get caught. Killing raptors is a federal crime.

I did not know this. Any ideas WHY? They're horrible creatures.

I had one roosting in my box blind before the season. Apparently i broke the law, because he is no longer with us.

There is a little ghetto town in Geismar called Buzzard Roost, or Buzzaroo as the inhabitants call it.

...and that was Slickback's "Did You Know?" for the day...



Go along a fence line and get 6 or 7 to line up on fence posts. If your fence is straight and you are a good shot, you should be able to get multiples.

The Turkey Vulture species receives special legal protections under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 in the United States,[8] by the Convention for the Protection of Migratory Birds in Canada,[54] and by the Convention for the Protection of Migratory Birds and Game Mammals in Mexico.[54] In the USA it is illegal to take, kill, or possess Turkey Vultures, and violation of the law is punishable by a fine of up to $15,000 and imprisonment of up to six months.[53] It is listed as a species of Least Concern by the IUCN Red List. Populations appear to remain stable, and it has not reached the threshold of inclusion as a threatened species, which requires a decline of more than 30 percent in ten years or three generations.[1]


Doesn't make sense. They are in the least concern category and carry a ton of nasty diseases but are protected. Seems like that act is outdated to me.

This was going to be my suggestion.

Some decided one of our duck blinds was perfect to roost in, and this is what we did. They have yet to return.

I even read that killing them could possibly bring more buzzards and other predators to your land.

Also their crap has some sort of acid in it that kills other forms of bacteria. They are flying squawking irony.

But they eat another blind at the expense of $40, I'm gonna have to take matters into my own hands.
