Despite all of the crazy and unusual things many of us witnessed this spring, hunters across the state did pretty good in the turkey woods. Link here tells more.

The article says they are happy with the harvest numbers which i think is sad. Hunting here blows compared to ten years ago. dont get me wrong u can still kill em but man was it fun to hear 15 a morning.

2 bird limit and no fall hunting for 5-6 years might help spread em back out and populate better.

I despise the very idea of fall hunting and shooting hens. However, I don't think enough birds are harvested to make a tinkers dam one way or the other. I tried it once, and thought it was a stretch to even consider it turkey hunting, there was no challenge to me in calling in a bird which has only been alive for a few months, and is desperate to find its friends.

Our turkey population is fine. I drive roughly 1000 miles per week, and see generally the same amount of birds year in and year out. However, some areas in this state should have had their regs adjusted following the freak weather events recently. Leaving the regs the same didn't make much sense to me, but then again I don't know all the details.

We probably don't have the birds that other states do, or have the birds we could if things were tweaked here and there. Overall, hunting in TN is very good on average, and could be a little better maybe with a little tweaking, and a little trigger management on the jakes.

Populations might be good elsewhere but lawrence county is desolate of turkeys ive seen more promise this year than the last 5 years but its kind of discouraging when i used to hear 10 or 15 birds a morning.
