I am fairly new to turkey hunting. My aunt has a farm, and has turkey on it. I would like to go up there to kill some seeing they are causing a problems when they seed.
Am I only allowed to kill toms/jakes. Or may I kill hens as well seeing they are a nuisance for them and their source of income...

During the spring, only bearded birds. Bearded hens make a very low percentage of the hen population. Jakes and toms are fair game, make sure the bird has a beard before shooting. During the fall season, if your county is listed under fall turkey hunting in the guide, you can kill X amount of birds, either sex, beard or no.

Just looked in the hunting guide for you - Blount county has a fall limit of 2 birds. They can be hens if you like
