    Just heard that there isn’t going to be a quota hunt for spring turkey hunting in Land Between the Lakes! Not sure about the reasoning, but this sucks I always looked forward to getting drawn for a couple pre season days of hunting.

    Interesting...…...curious if it's directly related to a dwindling population or something else.

    Man, there's still plenty birds most places. The boys without birds are the ones talking most. Makes it seem like turkeys are damn near extinct. I'm not the only one on here with plenty birds, I assure you. We just don't bitch as much..

    I reckon if you take me turkey hunting, I'll leave you alone. Or let me school you on it, I'll leave you alone then, too

    I tell ya this much... I have been doing some [email protected] BiTCHen about the situation...It don’t take a bird mechanic to figure out that there IS something bad wrong going on around my neck of the woods when it comes to turkey numbers.I may not have a royal slam under my belt or been killing turkeys since I was 2... but I know something’s bad wrong..

    Yep, numbers are way down in my area but so is the hunting pressure. When I started turkey hunting I could count the number of other hunters on both hands. 'Bout to be that way again! Oh well, funny thing is for the most part I'm counting the same guys I was 30yrs ago.

    Just based on my normal sightings and trail camera photos I've seen fewer birds in the last couple of years. 5 years ago I would curse the number of turkey pictures I had to sift through or the numerous times turkeys would come by and bust me in a tree. I don't think it happened once this past season.

    I am personally "leaning" toward a theory of mine that our Wild Turkey flock (State-wide) came down with some sort of illness last Summer and a lot of Turkeys died. On my property, last Winter I saw tons of Turkey but haven't seen one since this past September.
