Out of those 2, Id say coyote. But I think nestrobbers are the worst. Raccoons and fireants.

Coyotes are not high on the list. Of those two it's certainly bobcat.

IMO, a turkey is most vulnerable as an egg & a poult - so snakes, hawks, owls, coons & possums would be tops on my list ... once they reach adolescent & adult stage, they're pretty good at evading all of these predators & more ... i'm not a wildlife biologist although i play one on TV ...

I believe every predator mentioned is bad but one I think often overlooked is crows! Crows are known nest predators. I believe avian predators are the worst. Hawks, owls and crows as nest predators can significantly impact turkey populations.

As for the OP, I believe bobcats are probably more successful predators of turkeys than coyotes are but coyotes probably harass them more.

Be careful where you go with that. You know I kill every predator I can.

That one would be at the top of my list too.

MOF there's a whole pack of turkey predators up in the North Jackson area.
