I am no supporter of the NWTF, with that said read the below.

Some things to consider when lowering the boom this fall or next spring on hens.

Interesting read.

Hope the TWRA knows what they are doing with fall bag limits, because I will shoot birds of either sex in the fall.

I always figured that I'd rather have more hens to produce little turkeys and simply compete with them each spring than the other way around. Having 'endured' hunting in places with really poor populations, it's a tradeoff I'm happy to deal with every April.

Well when the state kills 35,000 - 40,000 male birds a year and 5 or 6000 hens it wont take long for the numbers to get out of control.

Didn't take time to read the attached article, did you?

Might want to comprehend all of the info before making a reply.

I am at a loss for words to be honest, and that doesn't happen very often.

Why are you not a supporter of the NWTF? I'm new to turkey hunting and know very little about that organization.

How did I know you would chime in with some smart reply
Setterman you are a piece of work
you are constantly attacking someone one here
with your attitude and smart mouth
this is not the first time you have done this to me
To be honest I did read the whole story and I knew when I posted this you would be your normal self.
It was a test and yes you passed once again
