All day hunting thats funny,yah got three weeks,mushroom hunters get the woods to and I imagine there is a lot more of them than Turkey hunters:D
I suspect it will be lower numbers again,time will tell,maybe shake it up a little and go to one bird season in some counties:D

it's compensatory, right:)
If they think it's compensatory they need to restrict harvest more so these predators eat more gobblers and fewer hens. I would like to know how they measured the impacts on the hens when they compensated for gobbler mortality. :D

I would love to see a first week archery only starting around the first week in April followed by 2 weeks of shotgun all day hunting.....just my 2 cents
I get what your saying, but nothing is stopping us from archery hunting in the current set-up. While I am for season placement moving for firearms deer, I have never suggest reducing the days afield for anyone.

I wouldn't hate it either way, just think the time to liberlize isn't when there are major issues they have zero answers for, but hey it's compensatory, right:)
The issues have nothing to do with harvest and wont be fixed or accentuated by more harvest.

The directors Ive talked to want it for spring 2020.

This is an option as well. CFM supports both.

Anyone stupid enough to think reducing
the number of one sex might not increase predation of the other obviously isn't qualified to determine whether someones thoughts are dumb or not.

Thru hunting on the monday of the 3rd week last year we had killed 27500 birds and had a jake percent of 13.7%.

Thru hunting on moday of the 3rd week this year we have killed 30560 birds with a jake percent of 19.4.

I suspect we will end up with a total kill increase of around 10-15% this year.

I am pretty sure Rob all alone is responsible for killing most of the male turkeys in Missouri this year, next year is not looking to bright for anything but jakes. :D
