I heard there was speculation about ending turkey hunting everyday at 1:00 pm. Please tell me this is a rumor!

They already said no changes for next season. Even though they dont know anything about this years hatch yet, or this years harvest. Despite outrageously high jake harvests in alot of counties that any biologist would find very unacceptable, no changes.

AS bad a season as I have had, I honestly do not think the current regs are directly effecting me, as where I hunt is extremely remote and virtually unhunted.

However, the jake slaughter this year has been astronomical, heck there are folks who limited out with nothing but jakes.

BTW what is the % up to now?

I have not heard a 1:00 closure and if it were proposed I would be strongly against that, but would love to see a 1 jake rule and a drop back to 3 birds.

I wouldn't mind a 5"-6" beard length minimum or a 2-3 bird limit until the numbers get higher.
Maybe allow a youth to harvest any turkey including hens on juvy hunt.

Could the deer numbers (ie buck:doe ratio) be used to steer the turkey regs.... may sound silly but it's just a thought.... What happens when jakes breed hens..... or there is mostly hens and tom has to hardly go anywhere to find/service a hen making the hunting very frustrating to the hunters.... like this year for example?

I wouldnt mind restrictions on jakes at all either. True story here, one of my favorite places to turkey hunt has been ruined this year due to jake slaughterers. The main idget killed 4 jakes, then brought buddies and let 3 of them kill a jake a piece also. No longbeard harvests between any of them. That wiped out every jake that was on the place and will ruin the hunting for quite a few years. Really ticks me off too because this property is very close to mine so what he has done will affect my property also. Thats 7 jakes out of a flock that was already greatly reduced in numbers from previous years.

I absolutely agree with restrictions on jakes. I think a one jake rule would be perfect. I'm sure there will be a bunch of crybabies whining about taking their "easy kills" away from them if that happens!

Really? Did the jakes kill the longbeards that were there before they got slaughtered?
