That is why there isn't a season at that time, because it is prime time. The gobblers would all be shot up. Most states time their hunting seasons so it falls between the to main gobbling peaks. Our season in Ohio doesn't open till April 20 when most gobblers are henned up, but by the third week they start to become a little more responsive. Just my .02.

If you want to ambush em,yeah nows the time.Later in the month of April , when the hens start nesting,is the best time to sit down and call em in.If your just waiting on the herd to walk by,IMO thats not the way to hunt.

yep, I think it usually opens between the 8 - 13 of April. Not sure why they made it the 18th. Doesn't really bother me though, I've always had my best hunts in May, especially the last weekend of season.

My brother and I were guessing they did it to miss the Easter weekend?? Youth season is the 4th and 5th. All of our youths grew up though......lol

We were at the farm last weekend doing some work. (Owen Co.) Heard a bunch of 'em cutting up Sunday morning. Still seemed to quiet down a lot after fly down time though. Seems to be a whole bunch of hens. Probably wouldn't hurt to weed some of those out in the fall.

ky season, late

If I'm not mistaken Ky opens the season on the Saturday closest to the 15th of April. This year that Saturday is a very late April 18th.
I wish they would start it the second weekend of April. The 18th is going to be very late. The turkeys have been gobbling good for some time now and I'm afraid we will be on the down swing by the 18th.
Tn begins March 28, this Saturday and I can't wait. Can't be that much difference in Ky and Tn. Tn opens before Ky and closes after with a limit double that of Ky. I wish the KDFWR would take another look and make some season dates and limit revisions.
