I've had something really bothering me the lately and its time to get it off my chest! I understand the LDWF wants to see an increase in the turkey population (the hens having a chance to get bred and so on) lord knows how hard a hen has to protect her eggs and young! That being said this is the worst season I've ever had, the gobblers were as usual already henned up on Feb. 23rd, and knowing that the season was opening so late I knew it wasn't going to be good. I always look forward to bringing my son out on the youth hunt but had prepared him not to expect the same as years past, I didn't want to sound like it was over before it got started but after years of experience out in the same neck of the woods, I know when its breeding time and when its over. Even though we managed to see a few small birds (that wasn't interested at all) we put away our guns early and decided to start fishing! I personally would have rather seen the season open same as before but only a 2 week season. Now,this is really what burns me up! If we really want to see an increase in the turkey population we need someone to talk to the federal government about all the nest that are being burnt up at this present time on Kasatchie National Forest. Control burns of several thousands of acres have been going on for 3 weeks I know! Thats probably not helping the population at this time! Again, not trying to step on any toes, but sometimes it helps to shed some light!

Thanks for the heads up, maybe you can get by using some screen gasket from a local hardware store, it works pretty good!
