I live hunt in Indiana, and we have alimited fall season in certain counties. My hunting area is in those areas, and I plan on hunting this fall. My hunting buddy and I are going to try and take a hen for the purpose of management for the spring season. We count at least 20-25 hens in the fall together and 5-8 longbeards on the one property. We think that taking a hen or 2 will not hurt the population bad, and give us a better oportunity in the spring. As far as letting a longbeard walk is probably not going to happen, sine I will be using my bow. Great idea, just hard to implement.
have fun and be safe
