What are we deer hunters? \:D What's the difference if he kills them in 2014 or 2015 on his property? Its still 4 dead turkeys.


Not to put words in his mouth but I think what Setterman is meaning not to hard to kill jakes.
I never saw a jake that I could kill this season. I missed a longbeard and killed a longbeard but never could close the deal on a jake. Is there a trick to them so I can easily harvest one?


In my opinion jakes are sometimes harder to kill because they usually are not gobbling, strutting, breeding, and looking for hens.

If a guy were to go out trying to kill a Jake and pass on longbeards, I think he would have a tough season.

This is the first season that I have not saw a jake normally I see several of them. Not to hard to call or bushwhack if that's what makes a man happy. Last year almost every day I hunted I called in a group while trying to work a tom.

\:D Figures the jake limiters would get the most attention.

I'm still more interested in legally taking 7 and 8 gobblers each spring.

I would think it is possible. Maybe a question for SCN.

As many as a person can draw. I took 4 adults statewide, one reelfoot nwr bonus, one LBL bonus. My buddy works at Milan arsenal, he said those are bonus birds, and they can take four. I guess if Id drawn Chickasaw nwr, and lower hatchie, That would have been 2 more.

I guess I know the guy who killed the 8. He got his 4 state birds then hunted Arsenal land for 4 bonus birds . Plus he got 2 Merriams this last week.
Tickweed knows him too.
