Just 1 in TN...I passed on a lot of jakes at just about every place I have to hunt so there is hope for next year.

Tough season for me, my places were just completely void of long beards. I did call in 3 public land birds for friends, that's the only 4 long beards I got to work this year in TN.

I quit at 3 and even that may be to many considering our population.

First time I killed less than 4 since 2011 but was my fault considering I missed 3. Still a tougher season than I have ever hunted before. And I hunted a whole lot

I took active duty soldiers and Veterans hunting this year. I only hunted one day not killing anything. The guys I took killed six birds. All of these came out of Cheatham County.

I killed 2 Gobblers here in Tn. this year. Had a great season with lots of gobbling and "several" opportunities right up until the last day.

3 for me, most I've killed personally in over a decade. Overall I called in enough birds into range for 11 shots fired total in 6 full days plus 2 half days hunting... a little above long term averages for me.

Looks like everybody did good but sounds like your place is the longbeard capital. Next year save one for me and I'll save one for you.
