Looking at a property and it seems like a nice spot for guinea hens (20 acres, no neighbors right up against the property). There is a ton of potential for harvesting animals such as deer and turkey. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with the interactions of guinea's and deer or turkeys? Will the guinea's keep them away or will we be ok?

Guineas new two your property should be fed morning and night, and will nest in your trees or on your roof. If your guinea's are
allowed to forage for themselves and only fed at night after 2 weeks (?) they will come to where you feed them every night and
will help keep other animals away and hopefully away from your garden !

they are very adapt at eating lots of insects and love ticks, they should not bother your hunting ! Big AL
