.....”they” want to keep places like this in south AL un-hunted until April 1st......

Except, it won’t be quiet - the turkey will be on fire gobbling on this pretty little hardwood flat in February and March. By April, it will be hot and humid and green and dead and the gobblers will be slowing way down, only gobbling a few times real early before its gets miserable.

No hunting here in March will make turkey season less worth my time and trouble.

Just go along with them on the dates. They know things that we mere hunters dont. You know things like "science"????

Just remember.... Opening day is only a number on a calendar.
Turkeys don't have a calendar and I don't need one.

I am considering going full outlaw this year...


I've spent most of the money I've made in my lifetime on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.....

I told a turkey killer I know about these proposed changes

His answer- "Good thing my property is grandfathered in". 150% chance he hunts the birds and not the season if this is implemented

I hunt as much as I can - will be harder To hunt if season shorter. I usually take first week off to hunt - April second traditional my birds been pretty henned up at that time.

I wish they Bring it in March 15 and cut it out lot earlier - mosquitos and nats usually not as bad in March and I killed Way more turkey in March. Would rather that than late season Opening that is shortened. Bet not may birds went down In May this year

from Birmingham south usually April 15 to end is very hot and slow. Cutting out March is a dick move

Well, Chuckie owns this and it looks like your description of the "move' fits him well.

I had to cut my grass here twice last February. My folks are north of Bham, and rarely need to mow before April 1. Same type of yard/grass/weeds. The animals are on different spring schedules as well. I’ve made the point more than once, but for Jackson County and Clarke County to have the same start date for turkey hunting is ridiculous. Major differences in green-up and how the birds act in the Spring.

Chuck said Alabama hunters are too stupid to remember different dates for seasons

Half are too stupid, half don’t care, and the other half follow the rules (most of the time). You may have to check my math on that grin

This past spring was about the earliest green up I remember.

I’d rather keep March and shut if off the last 2 weeks of April, If your going to shorten season. Personally I say leave it alone!
