How did your hunt turn out this year?

I didn't know a guy had to scout for turkey anymore. Anymore, you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a turkey in the Eastern half of KS!! MAN..... the population in the last 6-10 years on turkey has gone through the roof. It's unbelievable!! Farmers around here are pretty easy to get permission from to hunt turkey because they are so hard on a crop field. Many times they will tell you to shoot 2 for yourself, 1 for them, and leave a couple laying out there to feed the coyotes!!!

If the state didn't worry so much about the tag $$ that is generated they would probably shorten the season to about 3 weeks and go with a daily bag limit of 1 Tom per day. If the numbers keep increasing like they have, it wouldn't surprise me at all.

I get a pretty good idea during deer season where to setup for Turkey, but you're right, they are everywhere.
Maybe you guys could come up and go for a Tom in our parts Think

Some good stories so far.

I was able to get a good bowkill buck, and a doe for the freezer. Seemed like season went so fast though. Can't believe it's already over. But shed season is starting here shortly!!!

Here he is. I've seen him a few times in velvet, and was able to get some video footage and game cam pics of him. I arrowed him on the eve. of Oct 21st. I was fortunate enough to have my wife with me as well. She got it all on video too, which was pretty cool.

Yes, I do love to turkey hunt. There seems to be more and more every year. I like the new archery season. Sounds like I'll give it a try. How about yourself?
