Not enough turkeys on Georgia for fall season. Numbers seem to decrease each year now as it is.

This is spot on and applicable for our state in every way. And the statement about who's wanting a Fall turkey season rings true for here too, most I know who ask about it are deer hunters seeing a bunch of birds.

There is a Fall turkey season here in Ky and it is two birds, and only one can be a gobbler. I was struggling hunting them, and found out it was more about trying to pattern them, a lot like deer hunting. A sage person on here, told me about scattering them and how they will we gobble to get the crew back together. I usually take one Bird in the fall. The Turkey population in this area is exploding, and in the fall, you will see groups of 3 to 4 hundred birds in one group.

Georgia doesn’t have a turkey population like that.

It will never work in GA because of all the facts the DNR article states. Population has less to do with it as much as overlapping seasons with varying criteria. Deer and turkey seasons in GA are VERY liberal and long compared to other states. I'm fine with the way it is. I'll travel if I want to hunt fall birds. No biggie.

Please no fall turkeys! After all the tough seasons the past few seasons we don't need to kill more. I think we should have a two gobbler limit as well.
