Sure TN is killing more per square mile than KY is, but KY is doing this (within .06 adults per sq mile of us this year) with HALF the season and HALF the limit. Is maximum killage per square mile really TN's goal? I would hope it would be more along the lines of maintaining a sustainable turkey population that isnt doing these wild fluctuations like our population is but hey thats just me.


This is where our disconnect lies. We have absolute numbers that say a three-week season and two-bird limit kills almost the exact same amount of birds as a six-week,four-bird limit. I for the life of me can't understand why you would want to limit yourself or others when the results of the two option are the same?


What the numbers for hunter success between the two. It looks like they have more individual hunters killing turkeys.

According to the deer hunter numbers posted here, we have more deer hunters then they do, which should equate to more turkey hunters then they do.

We have no way of really knowing exactly how many turkey hunters we have in this state.

I am sure KY knows exactly how many since they have a special license for spring turkey. It is just finding that info.



But we should be able to tell how many hunters killed 1,2,3,or4.

KY should have more individual hunters that killed a turkey than TN.
