    I guess the hunting should get better there then.

    They do have special size restrictions on the turkeys you can take.

    Yes,I'm aware of their size restrictions. They've been on the books for quite a while and have had no effect on the population. In my opinion that is a very dumb law.

    I'm with you were just lucky to be in the expansion years it will come just like all the southeast has to level off at some point can't boom forever. Even Va had 16% or so decrease in harvest last year hope that wasn't sign of things to come

    CRC says it's easier when there's less turkeys.

    i would disagree with on that. having hunted for several years in Texas, eventually those odds (with too many hens) swing to the hunter's favor.

    and i damn sure would rather be chasing henned up gobblers than listening to silence and seeing nothing.

    CRC - I know what you meant but just dont see that as an issue. dont want to argue.
