Do not have a problem with it. I started hunting turkey in the fall when I was 8 and still enjoy it. Now my son is beside me in the woods doing the same thing I did all those years ago. Must say I can not think of a better way to spend a fall day.

Just enjoying the preparation.

you have to balance the population and the only way to do that is to take a few hens out, look at it this way Oleman, the hens that are taken in the fall, are the ones that wont make it thru the winter anyways, you know they dont all make it to see the next spring. its no different then shooting a doe or hen duck to me. it needs done.

As long as the population is sustainable I dont have a problem with it.
