And back 7 or 8 years it was 6500 to 7500 opening day. Assuming opening day is ok weather, the 3 week total will be 6 to 7x opening day.

Yep, but weather the first few days plays a HUGE roll. I would say weather this year was below average in N MO. Last year was pretty average. 2019 was a bit above average. 2018 was TERRIBLE. Regardless, the first week is the most telling. A lot of kills get made up for in that first week if the opener is poor.

Shooting a bearded hen is not cool!!!!! If u don't know the difference between a tiny blue headed bird with a beard from a much bigger red headed bird with beard u should just not shoot!

Bearded hens only make up about 10% of the hen population so the chance that they get killed is pretty low in the first place. Plus, most of the seasoned hunters want a gobbler or at least a jake and pass them.
They breed and lay just like other hens.

They aren't doing it on accident.
