Turkey Season Eve
Anybody else going after them tomorrow morning? I have yet to hear a bird sound off at my place north of Liberty but I hope this weather doesnt bother them too much.

re: Turkey Season Eve
I'll be going. I'll mostly be wandering around aimlessly, trying to find the slightest hint of sign, let alone a gobble, but I'll be going.

PSA: I was told by a friend who's good friends with a game warden that they are prepared to write a lot of tickets to the folks who are hunting the WMA's that are closed down until April 1st. Apparently folks aren't reading the regulations and seasons/bag limits and are just assuming that their WMA opens on the statewide opener. I've seen a lot of trucks parked on the side of HWY 25 in the mornings, scouting I assume, who may fail to read the regs when checking in tomorrow morning. I could see where, in their haste to get to their spot, that they fail to check the dates.

Just wanted to mention that if anybody is striking out to Malmaison, Choctaw, Marion County, Mason Creek, or Little Biloxi WMAs, then don't- or not until April 1st.

FYI.

Is it just me or are turkey hunters the most hardcore folks of the hunting world?

There's not many instances of a turkey hunter who "dabbles," that's for sure.

One might try turkey hunting, but he quickly takes sides on the matter.

As Rodney Carrington said, "You don't try d*ck. You try ice cream! But you don't try penis."

The same could be said of turkey hunting: Once you are a turkey hunter, you never really aren't.

re: Turkey Season Eve
Depending on where you hunt, most people get between 30-45 days to hunt turkeys compared to 60+ day seasons for ducks and deer.

This also isnt a game of sitting in a box stand or duck blind and hoping something comes by, you gotta know what youre doing to hunt turkeys.

plenty of turkeys get killed whilst the "hunter" is sitting in a popup blind on edge of a field with 10 decoys and with the popularity of scopes and tss, 70 yard shots aren't uncommon that's not what i call hunting but it is to many

re: Turkey Season Eve
I didn't say it never happens, but the number of casual deer, duck, dove, squirrel, etc. hunters far surpasses casual turkey hunters. If for no other reason then because of the one the fellow above said: It takes years to become a proficient turkey killer, and even then a proficient turkey killer can-and often does- get goose egg shat on him.

Going off of a large sample size, day in and day out, the average run-of-the-mill casual turkey hunter cannot possibly hold a candle to the skillset of dedicated member of the tenth legion who craves going to war with a tom gobbler.

In many ways the same can be said of a buck hunter, especially archery guys, who come home with "the big one" far more often than most. It takes time and dedication to kill a wild animal who is the monarch of his species. He's not sought after because he's easy to bag.
