I know in Missouri you can only hunt toms in the Spring. Also you can only hunt until 1pm. You should be able to check your state's department of conservation website.

I know in Wisconsin you can only shoot toms in the spring but in fall you can shoot either tom or hen.

Thanks for the answer. I did find out that in Kentucky it is much like in your state, here in the spring can hunt toms or any turkey with full beard male or female and in the fall male or female with or without beard.

However, I believe it is not good to take females in the spring as this is when they may have young or nesting eggs. [/b]

Thumbs up you canm only take aturkey with a visable beard. Some hens have beards but i myself would rather take a old tom and ihave taken my fair share. you can take two toms or bearded turkey during the spring. but only one the first week. and only one a day the 2and3. GOOD HUNTEN. keep nyour powder dry. coyotedube@yahoo.com

JO I f this is your first year some advice would be start with a slate or box call. And turkeys dont get call shy but if an old tom is coming always remember to tone it way down. and if you can use a decoy but be real careful. keep your powder dry if you need any help email me at coyotedube@yahoo.com. iF ITS TURKEYS ITS A LOT OF FUN Thumbs up Thumbs up
