If 20% of the Spring kill is comprised of juvenile (jakes) harvest, then... ya what you said is true "Juveniles are shot at almost a zero rate and have high survival." I hardly consider 20% jake kill to be "almost zero rate"!!!! Just another Hawk embellishment!Nope. A "local" population is much bigger than a couple square miles. Yes, you may shoot every gobbler on a farm, or on a square mile, but that wont be due to regulations. Regulations, other than very small zones or a draw wont prevent what you suggest. Thats where you become confused.
Turkey home ranges on a yearly basis are huge. Turkeys reshuffle the deck every year. Juveniles are shot at almost a zero rate and have high survival. They then become the adults for the next year. Adults arent carrying over. 2 and 3 year old harvest is mostly compensatory. You just arent going to "not shoot" your way to more males in the population.
