I posted a table at http://www.charlieelk.com/2014/2013-wis ... -kill/2013 containing the preliminary turkey numbers.
2013 total 4,633, this is about 30% fewer than the fall of 2012 - 6,933
The spring was down about the same percent. We all blamed the weather. But this fall was mostly good weather. Hope there is not a problem in the turkey woods. A couple of turkeys I shot had tumor like growths in their crops and were under weight. Never had seen growths like that in turkeys, wish my camera had been with. I always remove the crops in the field to prevent gamey flavor in the breast meat.
The turkey population has been very high here and nature has a way of pushing large populations down. Thoughts?
