I have personally decided next year I am not going to join a lease unless I find one covered up with birds. I will spend my season in Middle TN hunting WMAs. The sad truth is the hunting here is so bad here I would rather hunt public land there.

Well I have hunted in more areas then middle tn if you are aiming that at me. In addition I know a few biologists that work for the state and I assure you they didn't "just start".

Also the population ACROSS the state as I put it has gone up and that's a simple fact.


Not pointing directly at anyone thats what i was told and led to believe. As far as population we use to have one of those 15bird a mornin countiess andi can assure you renit has went nearly extinct you killed as many birds this year as i have heard in my end of the county in 7 years i promise. As far as populations going up across state maybe in the last 3 years but not the last 7 or 8 and i. Have trouble believing that. Maybe in pockets but not statewide

I agree that its a great place to hunt but something is definitely wrong i use to walk ten minutes one way to hunt turkey now i have to drive 1.5 hours one way to evene attempt to hunt. Its crazy how it has just went dead and the fact that they cant tell u whats going on is aggravating. As i have said in other posts i have seen more promise this year than the past 5 it has me really excited for next year but im not gettin my hopes up

"hunting" does not have as much of an impact on populations as some think as well.


If you have several good hunters in one area, it can have a major effect when you have a four bird limit.


no questions, and at some point hunters have to police themselves for future populations. Also you are still thinking small areas where i am talking about regions or statewide.

I mean if the limit was 1 all year but you had a lease of 30 guys that all killed one you are still defeating the purpose. Hunters have to do there part as well. I mean if you kill 10 hens in the fall and 4 gobblers a year on a small track then i really dont want to hear any complaining the next year when things are not as good as before.

obviously i dont have the answers and dont pretend to, and i hope i dont put off that vide. However there is so much that can affect a population of turkeys in a given area or even county its crazy. Weather, predators, farmers or dumb non hunters baiting them which causes disease. it is hard for a population to rebound fast if a bunch are whipped out in one time frame.

the last reports i got still showed the population was on the increase statewide, which means just that. It doesnt mean the population on your road or lease is on the rise.

people always point to Middle TN as its not fair to compair to east or west tn but my question to that is, if the limit is set at 4 yet Middle TN is still growing in population how is it the cause for the destruction in other areas? and on the flip side of that what caused the excessive population 10 years ago?

I've received 2-3 reports very similar to this over the last 7-10 days from a bud up around Nashville.
