Look at what day of the week the 3rd falls on. It’s on a weekend as well. They are really pandering to these weekend hunters.

That’s right... I wish they would stop monkeying with everything. The turkeys where I hunt are pretty much done by the end of April. I’m about give out too. And before anyone says anything, I know that I don’t have to hunt in May, but if the season is in, I’m hunting.

What gripes me is everyone that complains about not being able to hunt during the week. I’m in a position where I hunt for at least a couple of hours most every day. Why can I do this? It’s because I make sacrifices. I go into work later and stay later. When I wasn’t living near my properties, I banked all my overtime and vacation to use during turkey season. I never missed and opening week or closing day, and hunted a lot in between. But, you also didn’t see me taking a week long trip to the beach in the summer. It’s about priorities.

In my opinion it shouldn't matter what anyone WANTS.
It's called the department of conservation and nature resources. Their primary duty should be to conserve the natural resources. Not pander to politics or public relations.

Honestly, I'd love to see what the game seasons would look like -- in length and which months, compared to now -- if they went strictly by biology and nothing else.

I suspect they would be quite different and probably not what we have now, in regard to the months or time of year.

One week later it would be the same as Tn. They are having the same problem with decline in numbers also. I got a gut feeling Turkey have gotten on the same road as quail 20 years ago.

There are not fewer turkeys. There's smarter turkeys, because of an increase in dumb hunters.

I got off on a tangent with my comment. I’m in agreement about the biology vs. public relations. I wish ACDNR could just be honest with us on the reason for change. At least be the way our parents used be, “because I said so.” Not make up very transparent, flimsy stories.

If you know the data, you know that limits are less important than days in the season. Fewer turkeys will be killed with fewer days in the season. They have actually noted very little decrease in turkey kills by dropping the limit. Stone cold turkey killers just take a friend. By allowing fewer days in the season, there are fewer turkeys killed.

I think the DCNR has adopted the common core version of wildlife management.


Yeah, well, I always heard there were three kinds of suns in Kansas: sunshine, sunflowers, and sons-of-bitches.

That's an excellent assessment. It makes absolutely no sense. Just like common core mathematics.

PCP is spot on here. Where i hunt the birds have usually, mostly shut down by the third week in April. These dates are a perfect example of just arbitrary stupidity.

Why would you bring data and anything logical into a discussion that has to do with decisions that the dcnr makes? 🤷🏻‍♂️
