Heard that beginning next year, regular turkey season will start on the third Monday of April. So that should mean it will start Monday April 16th. :eek:

Someone e-mailed it to me, but it supposedly was recently decided at MDC's commission meeting.

One source is my "secret connection" in Jeff City....2nd source is our district? NWTF guy, who ramrods our banquet. He mentioned that date when we were deciding a date for next springs banquet....

But then, it's prolly not set in stone until it's set in stone by the good ole MDC!!!!!

That would be a little bit of help but IMHO not early enough for the most southern part of the state.

Very good. :eek: Maybe they'll still be "hot" during the season, and they were even nice enough to put it on my wedding anniversary. :rotfl: At least it's only until 1PM, so I'll be home in plenty of time to do stuff with Ellie. :dancin:

If the southern part of the state is drastically different, maybe some day they'll split the state into two or three zones to compensate like they do with waterfowl.

Not perfect by any means but at least a little better. Now the latest starting date will be about the same as earliest it used to be and the earliest will be getting closer to the ballbark of where it should be. It just baffles the h*ll out of me though....... Wonder what made them change their mind when for years the answer to the "Why isn't the season earlier?" question was always along the lines of "It is absolutely perfect the way it is and it will never change". Still don't know why in the heck they don't divide the state in half north/south and have a split season with different starting and ending dates in the northern and southern zones.

I asked a friend who works for the MDC that same question a couple years ago. The answer I got was Missouri doesn't have distinctive enough climate zones to justify splitting it into regions, a la Illinois. I didn't agree but there you go.

What could you possibly want to be better ?

Missouri kills over 50,000 birds a year,
I killed a strutting bird on the last day of the season last year.

:hysterical:

The trick is everyone wants to limit out every year like they're buying two turkeys from the grocery store. :peepwall:
