Wow. I hear that on just one listening spot a morning. You guys should find better habitat.


Whats funny is from my new farm I can hear most of the biggest habitat manager in the areas farm. He manages for quail. I hear at least 10 birds a morning over there on his place. He doesnt trap....
You all tagged out then, with a gobbler on every limb every morning?

Knox county in NE Mo has checked 144 adult gobblers during the current firearms season.
That’s one gobbler for every 2253 acres or one for every 3.5 square miles. Quite a drop from when I purchased my farm in 2003 and would see fall flocks numbering into the hundred plus.

I laid my gun down this morning and just watched him strut and gobble. It was the only bird I could hear and as soon as he pitched out I had already decided not to shoot. This is in north central Missouri on a track we used to kill 5 off the first week and still have that many more in there gobbling the second week. It’s past time to get aggressive with regulations!! We are falling fast!
Regulations aren't the issue.

Nope. Im limiting myself to only the new farm and have become obsessed with one bird there.

Gonna be a stretch to even make it to 30,000 this year. COVID 2020 outlier season not included, it is nothing but a steady downward trend year after year.
Still have a full day to go.

Yep, barely cracked 30K. Still gonna be the worst total ever since going to a 3 week season.

But nope, no issues here in the MO turkey woods.
