I read the turkey kill number thread and it got me to thinking. I know that is dangerous.
Read some very good points and discussion on that thread. Also read some very ignorant stuff as well.
ANYWAY....
I was just wondering.
I would like some input but in order to keep any resemblance of order to it the discussion needs to be on another thread or it will be impossible to keep track of it.
My question is this, and I ain't real sure how the best way to ask it is.
Also, remember that bag limits are set for the ANIMAL, not THE HUNTER.

Guess I will go with the multiple choice and hopefully I will get them close enough to "right" that everyone can pick one, or two that they would feel comfortable presenting to the TWRC for future season setting.

1) No change to present bag limits statewide.
2) Reduce statewide limit to 3 birds, no change to fall season.
3) Reduce statewide limit to 2 birds, no change to fall season.
4) Reduce statewide limit to 3 birds, change fall season to 1 bird, hen only.
5) Reduce statewide limit to 2 birds, change fall season to 1 bird, hen only.
6) Leave spring season as is and remove fall hunts all together.
7) Reduce spring season limit to 3, outlaw killing of jakes or limit it to 1 jake only.
8) Reduce spring season limit to 2, outlaw killing of jakes or limit it to 1 jake only.
9) Increase limit to 5 statewide, no change to fall season.
10) Increase limit to 5 statewide and eliminate fall season.


There ya go, ten choices. Any of them something you would like to see presented to the TWRC to try and get it changed to help protect the birds in the future?

So now we're talking the QTMA. \:D

Seriously, for me personally I'd say a combination of #5 and #8. Two birds total in spring with no more than 1 jake and then 1 hen only in fall. Biologically I have no idea what's right.

I'm gonna vote for # 1 simply because thats what the folks who are alot smarter than me when it comes to turkey biology have set it at.
