Strut, is the Turkey priority points different from the deer? The reason I ask is, cause there isn't a cap on the priority points on deer hunts

Hunting guide page 24 explains the drawings and priority for each. There are currently 3 drawings, spring turkey, special season deer and turkey, and wma. They are each separate from each other. Spring turkey priority goes up to a max of 5 points. If I recall correctly, there are 33 applicants with 5 points going into the spring drawing. Don't know how they got 5 points without being drawn. There are over 11,000 with 1 point. I'd be one of those.

bsl, it is a tough hunt. I literally 'lucked' up on my bird. A friend of mine who was in my party kinda took the spot I had picked out. I went to my backup spot. I got my decoys and 1/2 ground blind set up and lightly purred right at sunup. He hammered back at me. Then, another bird gobbled. They headed right for me. Every time I called, they both gobbled. After a minute, I heard a gobble from behind me and figured they went down below me. I quietly turned over and was laying prone facing the direction I heard it the last time. I looked over to my right and there a bird stood at 40 yards in full strut. How he didn't see me when I turned over is beyond me. When he turned around, I sat back up and BOOM! Down he went.

I'd rather be lucky than good any day.
