As opposed to, 'we should continue shooting baby turkeys' \:\) \:\)

Seriously, though...

Harvest limits should fluctuate region by region and year by year depending on the spring's hatch and previous harvest totals. In my county which has seen a decline in population and harvest numbers for 5 consecutive years, I'd like to see all jakes protected and limit on gobblers lowered to 2. I'd also like to see the season open the second week of April. While we're at it, elimination of fall hen hunting during the period of population decline would also be nice.

As the population rebounds, the harvest restrictions could be loosened.

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.



Maybe we should have a 1 1/2" minimum spur length.
