Lots of them in the Bonnyville area, see them all the time. They nest in abandoned buildings here. Never an issue with trapping, as they are gone long before season starts.

They perch on the Tower of the old AGT/Telus building in down town Medicine Hat almost every evening during the summer,8-10 early season up to 16 late season.
Family group I expect.
Can't imagine what the tower and roof top under them looks like by Fall,they excrete some rather nasty material on their legs as a cooling system and in general.

Saw a Turkey Vulture 3 Miles West of Delburne AB yesterday eating a dead Fawn. Ugly things they are.

The pair that hang around my place have been back for probably a month now.

There is a nesting pair in Horsefly too.
Bald eagles eat first, then the golden eagle, then the turkey vulture.
I watched this on a bear gut pile.

Dewey, You need to be careful, they are probably seeing your limp and believe dinner may be served soon.

As you mentioned on page 1...
Just seen 3 eating a duck on a lease road by Ferintosh. As soon as I came over the hill on the quad I knew what they were as they flew up. Iíve only seen them around smoky lake area before this.

Just as mentioned before the Turkey boys were just last straw after so many of my released pheasants were taken by hawks, owls, eagles, mink, foxes, coyotes etc
