I think if you want to hear bragging just scroll up a few posts and you will see it...
And if you can read between the lines you will find part of the problem with the turkey population. Alot of folks have the same mindset. Kill all you can while you can!!!!

My yard turkeys have disappeared I don't know if they've moved or died off. The last few years I had turkeys at the bird feeder almost everyday, this year nothing. When I say nothing I mean not even one hen, but who would ever question TWRA and their reasoning. Im between Franklin and Murfreesboro.

I think we have it wrong... From what I have observed this spring natural predators are on the rise. I cannot count the number of coyotes that came into my [HEN] yelping. Also called up 3 bobcats. I think they are taking a toll on our hens.

I'd rather have people trying to kill their limit than people who don't give a hoot about limits or seasons or buying a license. I know a guy who hunted before season and then when season opened one of his friends and another guy went out and killed 8 toms in a row out of a flock. The "it's my land, I can kill what I want" mindset kills me...

I think the "new breed" are the self pro-claimed turkey killers, who always have a tag in their vest. In case you wonder what I mean check out the "silence" thread.
One of the biggest problems with hunting today.
I am glad I am not the only one whose skin it gets under.

I deleted my post. Most wont know what Im talking about. It really bothers me to see a person just post a statement like that. Ive worked as a volunteer for over 30 yrs. with the NWTF, and its like a slap in the face. To see how long it took, to get the birds we have and than say that. Im done on this topic.

If you will study the Harvest Report,you will see that things are changin.The Jake numbers are way down,use to be about 40 percent or so.That shows that hunters are taking Toms over Jakes.Looks like the shooting Jakes raggin is workin LoL.

I also have been a NWTF volunteer in the past for about 12yrs. Still a member prolly always will be....although I don't like the direction they are going in I still respect what they have done with wild turkey restoration..I tell everyone I kno who turkey hunts they should be a member. I consider it to be one of, if not the greatest restoration effort ever!!!!
