Title: Fall Turkey Season!?!
Post by: nOnAmE on August 09, 2009, 09:58:03 AM
Okay I am really pissed off right now.

I didn't know there were two seasons for turkey and I missed the application date! :tickedoff

Unless I am understanding this wrong...MI Turkey Seasons (http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,1607,7-153-10363_10958_10969-30336--,00.html).

Why haven't I heard any of you talk about this, or is it just a MI thing?
Do you think I could still get an application in even though I'm 8 days past the cutoff?

 :'( :'( :'(

KY has basically 3 fall seasons for turkeys.  One for archery and 2 for shotgun.  The fall archery turkey season runs concurrently with the deer season.  One of the shotgun seasons comes in during October and runs for 7-8 days.  The other comes in during December and runs 7-8 days.  I think there's a 4 bird limit, I think??  2 with archery/crossbow and 2 with shotgun.  Either sex on all 4 birds. O0


The reason you haven't heard us talk about it is with it running during deer seasons, most people don't really specifically turkey hunt.  They're more of an opportunist thing. :wink:  When I used to bowhunt, I always carried a diaphram call with me in case I saw any turkeys.  Saw several, but never got a shot. >:(

Dude, there's a master list of all of that stuff on MI's site. :roll:  Get a calendar and mark the dates down on it. :wink:  Ahead of time preferably. ;D

Georgia stopped it's fall turkey season back in the mid 70's. There's been some talk about bringing it back, but it seems most of the hunters prefer a spring season and oppose a fall hunt.

Like Big58 says, during the fall season most birds are incidental contacts who wind up getting zapped by deer hunters.

I've been on one fall turkey hunt and that was  over 20 years ago in Arkansas. The man I was hunting with managed to scare some birds off a roost early in the morning before first light and then called to see if he could get them to come in. It worked but it's hard to concentrate on turkey when they're big deer out there to hunt! :wink: :wink:

I think one of the reasons it's not looked on with much enthusiasm here is that most states with fall hunts allow both hens and gobblers to be taken. Some turkey addict also also told me the spring hunts required more skill and you got to use a greater number of call variations.

I will say this though, the birds have made a big come back. In the late 70's only about a third of Georgia's counties had a turkey season, now all 158 counties allow spring turkey hunting.

I actually got a call one morning right before getting off duty of a Tom, strutting around in a parking lot in shopping center. It was in a very built up area with all kinds of traffic. I got there and sure as the devil, he was parading around in front of Kroger's. He flew off when I got out of my patrol car. I guess I should have taken my yelper and slate call with me! :roll: :wink: :idiot2

Ya' should have shot him with your pistol.  O0 ;D

A deer and a turkey the same day would be alright with with me. :D
Hopefully there will be some leftover turkey licenses so I can get one.
I will have to make sure to carry some #5 out there with me when deer hunting. :twisted:
I always wonder what I'm gonna do if I actually get a deer because I don't have a truck or anything.  Strap it to the roof of my car? ???

Keep a big sheet of plastic in your trunk.  Put the critter in there on top of the plastic.  O0
