We had that problem and turned out to be mink and weasels. The mink weren't big enough to cart off the entire ducks they killed so just ate until full. They were havoc on our prawn population, too. Some live traps will tell the tale the first night.

I was curious as to what you decided with regards to a tractor rifle.

There are no marten or fisher in this area. We do have mink but the are rare and they stick to the bottom land. These birds are housed on land that is just a few hundred feet shy of being the highest spot in SE Michigan. It's possible but not sure on that one. Weasels around here are really small. Small enough that a turkey might actually eat the weasel. Never saw one big enough to kill a 20+ pound turkey but, even if it could, it couldn't eat the quantity of meat this critter ate last night. Weasels are here on occasion but never had trouble with one. Thinking this is something bigger.

Yeah - they seem to be on the rise everywhere. The weasels/minks went for the heads mostly.
