Default Free Degrubbing?

Thank you to the wild turkeys or whoever the critters were that degrubbed and aerated parts of my front lawn. I am guessing the rain makes them come near the top for air? And assume its turkeys - do other critters do this? And I assume its grubs or other bugs....

Skunks, opossum and raccoon.

Can you provide a close up of a damaged area - zoom in....because from here it doesn't look like any of the three?

When did it happen? Turkeys would be out during the day. They roost in the trees at night.

Be glad you don't have Armadillos. You'd be cussing this morning as they can destroy a landscape looking for grubs.

Yea that is what had me wondering - havent seen them in the front this year yet and i thought it may have happened at night - but i have not been out much due to my surgery recovery. We get this almost every year and it does seem that when the turkeys leave during the day I haven't noticed this. We also have tons of coyotes and foxes this year. have skunks and racoon and possum but almost never see them anymore.

I think skunks. I get them on occasion.... I'd put something on the grass to kill the grubs. Next spring you won't have grass... been there..........

I haven't seen skunks in years but hear the - well they are fishers these days - (they look like weasels to me but seems they are fisher cats )screeching at night. I just read they eat grubs and will dig lawns - wanna get a cheap game camera - what do you recommend - just to see what I have going here...
