And an unchecked number of predators.

As far as weather, this year has and continues to negatively impact the hatch.

So yeah, I’ll say it again like I did the second day of the season. The PHR will be well less than 1:1 yet again this year. Another year with more loss of population than gain

And 25-30,000 less than when they went to a 3 week season. This is on par with or even less than when the season was 2 weeks, one bird a week. Didn’t get one the first week, you were only getting one at most.

Habitat loss and weather.
Habitat loss doesnt happen in 4 or 5 years in areas where there is very little cropping.

(2006 Season Wrap Up)



Spring turkey harvest remains above 50,000

Missouri hunters checked 51,018 turkeys during the season April 24 through May 14. That is a 5 percent decrease from last year's harvest of 53,798 but still the seventh-largest in the 47-year history of Missouri's modern turkey season. Unfavorable weather for hunting and below-average reproduction for the past three years held down this year's harvest. (Missouri Dept. of Conservation photo)
Missouri's spring turkey harvest was strong, despite poor weather for hunting and the past three years' below-average turkey nesting success.

JEFFERSON CITY-Missouri's 2006 spring turkey harvest topped 50,000 for the eighth consecutive year, guaranteeing the Show-Me State's reputation as a turkey hunting Mecca.

Hunters checked 51,018 turkeys during the season April 24 through May 14. That is a 5 percent decrease from last year's harvest of 53,798 but still the seventh-largest in the 47-year history of Missouri's modern turkey season.

Top harvest counties were Texas, where hunters bagged 946 turkeys, Franklin with 902 and Macon with 873. Regional totals were: Northeast, 8,436; Central, 7,577; Northeast, 7,308; Southwest, 6,504; Kansas City, 6,336; Ozark, 6,120; Southeast, 4,771; and St. Louis, 3,966.

The spring turkey harvest is in line with predictions from the Missouri Department of Conservation. Resource Scientist Jeff Beringer said before the season he expected the statewide harvest total to top 50,000, but that below-average reproduction over the past three years made it unlikely the 2006 harvest would equal last year's. In an interview the day after the season ended, he said unfavorable weather also probably helped hold down this year's harvest.

Who knew we needed more wood burning stoves
Well, we all knew that. The firewood theory is steeped in logic and common sense. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Also, no one logs their property anymore! I mean it is unheard of for new buyer to find the sellers logged to property prior to selling!

And an unchecked number of predators.

As far as weather, this year has and continues to negatively impact the hatch.

So yeah, I’ll say it again like I did the second day of the season. The PHR will be well less than 1:1 yet again this year. Another year with more loss of population than gain
Predators are only an issue because of habitat.

Weather so far has been fine.

North MO had a 1.4 phr last year.

A 16% drop in one year with good weather. Thats mean and it ain't golden.
Due to less tags sold. People need more time to hunt and will get it next year, fortunately.
