So many choices.
I'd leave spring like it is.
Plenty of opportunity.

Mainly, I'd opt for more fall hunting opportunities. I wonder what the participation numbers in fall really are?

As for killing jakes. MS has long had some regs on not taking jakes. I think they allow kids to shoot 'em, maybe? Don't know. Knowing how/if it has paid off over the years would be interesting. I seriously doubt a lot of hunters are filling their tags with jakes.

Doing a statewide restriction because of a bad hatch would really be hard to justify.
It would seem better to place restrictions on specific areas/regions that wildlife managers know recorded bad hatches (which I think happens most often in river bottom areas). And TWRA has done that before, example: Mississippi River Bottom.

eddie C, we have a no jake policy in Miss and no one has quit hunting because of it, if anything our license sales are increasing and finding places to hunt get harder and harder, because of the stricter regs.

The idea that restricing harvests as long as they are not insane, will not quell license sales or hunters.


Captain, not to argue your point but I personally know of some folks (in both states)that have not bought licenses and quit hunting because of restrictions. some of these are family members that have hunted for years.

#2 maybe even #3. 3 birds is plenty in my opinion.

#7- allowing only 1 jake

BUT,.. i would shorten the season to 4 weeks only and have a noon hunting cut off everyday. I think this would greatly increase the gobbling by the mature birds in pressured areas of this state.
