These are the facts I know. I have hunted the same 900 acre lease for 16 years. When i first started turkey hunting it the limit was one. There were two turkey hunters on the whole place. Turkeys everywhere. Kill one pretty easily. Then the limit was raised to two. We thought great get to hunt more. We still killed our two limit but we picked up a couple more turkey hunters and they started killing there limit. No problem still plenty turkeys. Then the limit went to three we thought even better. We really whacked em that year. Then the limit went to 4 and we really whacked em even more then. Then the last two years you can barely see a turkey. We killed three birds this year on the whole lease with 8 turkey hunters. Did we kill too many? Heck yea in hindsight but we thought TWRA knew what they were talking about. Hunting was 20 times better when the limit was two.
I had a thousand dollars in the bank. I kept taking it out in ever larger increments, and I was buying all sorts of good things. Then one day I tried to take some more out, and they told me that there wasn't any more money in my account. The bank should have told me that if I kept taking it out, there wouldn't be anymore left to spend. But, after all, it was my money and I did enjoy the things that it bought. Looking back the whole thing was the banks fault.

Glad you finally equate real world examples with how TWRA is managing our turkey population statewide.
Say what? It was an analogy making the point that RS just made, that you are big boys and you need to manage your own turkeys on your own land, not look for someone to blame because your resources have been depleted by you. Sorry you missed the point. But maybe you thought that any mention of a shortcoming has to be the fault of the TWRA, not the indvidual hunters on a limited piece of property.

To answer you and renegade all in one post. I hunt 100% on public property, which to a large degree is out of my control as to what gets killed by who. I am at the mercy of TWRA when it comes to turkeys, as are the other folks who hunt public land in this state, or private land which numerous folks have access to.

Not everyone has their own place all to themselves, where the only birds dying are by their hands. Think for one second about all the folks who do not have it like you.

Not much left to say and even less that we can do on this topic.

Huntaholic, I totally agree with that statement. TWRA can in no way make every hunter happy, especially when some are seeing lots of birds and others aren't seeing any. I'm just glad we have the opportunity to hunt them in Tennessee.

I'm done with this topic.
Right on boys.
Lord, keep your arm around my shoulders and your hand over my mouth
