Because I want my son and daughter to hammer them like I have when it comes their time, I've taken the #7 stance. However, in a perfect world, I would drop it to 3 birds, no jakes except for the Juvy hunts and do away with fall season all together.

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.

1) No change to present bag limits statewide


Not an option on the poll but I think if Tenn. ended each spring day's hunt at 12:00 Central/1:00 DST like Mo. the gobbling would increase and less hens would be bumped off the nest.

#4 or #5 and only allow 1 jake. But put this spin on it.... allow juvy hunters to take any bird that they want.... long-beard, jake, or hen.

1 or 9.

I am no biologist. I think TWRA can handle that department just fine.
I also dont think we should restrict the harvest of jakes or hens any more than it already is. The reason I feel this way? I think if we restrict what our NEW hunters(reguardless of age) can shoot(deer or turkeys, jakes or spikes) and their sucess rate is zero, they would get discourged and quit hunting all together. The same with hunters that have limited time in the field, no sucess, quit hunting, no sales of any products.
I know of some guys that their hunting time got limited due to having kids. This was before Unit L was created. they ended up quiting hunting because all they were seeing was does during their limited hunting time and the does were not legal to shoot.
I also dont care what legal weapon a person uses just as long as that person is in the field enjoying the hunt.

I wouldn't mind going back to 3 statewide & 1 WMA bird, or 2 and 2 like it used to be in the past. Of course, I have a WMA about 20 minutes from my house, and if we went that route, it would be covered up with hunters trying to get that extra bird.

Leave the fall alone. It is a different kind of hunting that those guys are just as hardcore about as the spring hunters are. Only 2000 birds were taken last fall, with 2/3 being hens.

Reducing the jake harvest to one is futile, because most hunters who would take a jake aren't going to kill more than one anyway.
