Hey tom slayer! How's it going eh?? By the looks of things, there aren't many of us great white north Canadian turkey hunters! I'm new to this forum. How's your winter going? Where you are? I live in Calgary, Alberta. I see on the news, you're about to get another load of Great Lake generated snow, possibly another Alberta clipper! We are in the middle of a chinook out here with the snow melting very fast (+10*C today). Turkeys around here have had a tough go for about a month with -30*C and 2-3 feet of snow cover. Good thing the ranchers are feeding their cattle (and turkeys at the same time). I'm a member of the local NWTF club and we're going to set traps at the end of the month to transplant another batch this year. I'm canvassing the Gov't to develop a Turkey management plan with goals and objectives to help with bolstering the numbers here in the province.

Hey tom slayer, good to hear back from you. Our birds out here are Merriams. We currently do not have a management plan for our birds. The gov't has a draw for 200 tags per year here. Last year, there was over 5500 applicants for the tags! I'm really lucky as both my wife and I were drawn for this year's spring season. I am a member of NWTF and also our local fish and game clubs. I have been in contact with the gov't to implement a management plan and now have a meeting scheduled in mid Feb. so that we can be organized in our efforts to expand the population. I'd love to swap a hunt with you sometime but I would have to take you to BC (short drive) to get across the counter tags for Merriams. I have harvested only Merriams and Rio's so far. I as well would like to get my slam. My plans this year are of course the draw hunt here in Alberta, a hunt in BC, and a hunt in Montana. I am "preparing" the wife for a trip to Florida in 2010 to hopefully get an osceola. With our NWTF club we are setting up the traps this weekend to prepare for trapping and relocating in February. Take care and hope the weather lifts for you.

Hi Slayer,
I just joined this forum but I'm not from Ontario. I live about 15-20 minutes away from the east Ontario border in Quebec.
Last year was my first time Turkey hunting and was successful.
The turkey here seem to be doing great despite the fact that we never had a program to reintroduce them back in our area. We are getting the overflow from other repopulating programs west and south of us.

Just signed up!
Located in Southern Ontario and getting pumped, season is just around the corner! First week is booked off. I'm guessing Alberta is FFG from AO?
