I think that Giles county has been down too the past about ten years.
I have not lived or hunted TN all my life, but I do remember 10 years ago it wasn't nothing to ride through giles county and see birds everywhere. Now that I own land in Giles county there just isn't the birds anymore.
It just aint the same.

I have never hunted Lawrence county, but I have hunted Wayne a few times, Marshall a few times, and hunt in Lincoln alot. Out of these counties it seems that Lincoln is the best one.

Our land and all the acreage around it that I know of for several miles is terrible.
Pulaski and North is where all the birds are.

For people to say that Tennessee has booming turkey populations need to come to where I have hunted. We do not see such.

It aint the same. I haven't hunted from one end of the state to the other, but I have hunted alot in the middle/southern counties. IMO Lincoln is the best and I have not noticed any decline in turkey population.
Also, IMO, I used to think anywhere in Giles Co. was unbeatable for turkey hunting. But I would say in the past 7-10 years it has been below average, especially south of Pulaski.

It is hard to remember that far back for me, but it seems that we have had very wet April/Mays during those years minus last April/may when it was a drought. I wonder if so much heavy rain for those several years in a row is what has done it?

our farm is on the maury county giles county farm, and like I said we see a ton of birds. but I guess I kinda jumped the gun, I have never hunted deep into giles for birds.

Id like to go back to the numbers the area I hunt had back around 10 years ago. Definitely more of a challenge now to just find a bird. I did see good poult numbers last year though.
