The only one I've shot in another state was kentucky. We moved there for a while. It was a around mammoth cave area it was huge and color phased. Double 14 3/4 in. Beard and almost 2 inch spurs. The biggest and best to date. I'll probably never beat him.

Do you feel it would be beneficial to have local agencies create a reporting spot online (or in the DNR app) to assist in tracking the gobbling. It would just add to the data collection without investing a whole lot of time on the agencies end by installing the sound meters. Just like reporting a harvest you could go in and report the day, time and location of birds you heard while out in the field. Just a thought. Thank you guys for the content and support of conservation across the board.

I think you guys have the best video content on the channel , real raw emotion and non commercialized videos make you the best. I am happy to donate to this project, doing something is always better than doing nothing! Turkeys are declining all over the country. The biggest problem I see out of the research video was the 1.4 poults per hen being produced. At that rate turkeys will be extinct if we can't figure out why this number is so low. More money for research should be spent in this area instead of gobbling data in my opinion. Is the problem predation on hens and their nests with fur prices so low? or is it the loss of nesting cover like what has happened to pheasant populations with the loss of CRP in many states. Is it West Nile Virus? or could it be due to some changes in farming practices? Could you please ask Dr Chamberlain about this in your next video with him. I applaud you for putting this research donation together, if we all work together we may all be able to hunt this magnificent bird for many years to come.

Here is some research for you from Pennsylvania. I bought my license on line so I get emails from the PA Game Commission. I just got an email saying spring turkey was about to start and their turkey biologists said there were loads of turkeys to hunt. The same week the Pa Game Commission released to the news outlets that there would be no fall rifle hunting this year and reduced hunting days because of low turkey populations. This kind of "Research" is why I don't donate to research projects. Sorry.
Turkeys here in SE Louisiana are few and far between. People hunt them like crazy. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy turkey hunting but everyone within one parish knows exactly where all the birds are. It’s nothing for people to stop near my driveway and watch and call to birds in a neighbors field. It’s crazy here. Season is only 20 days in my area.

I love the research project idea... it may be some work on ya’ll’s end, but would you guys be willing to release some sort of “fundraiser march” where a % of your customers’ costs go toward this fundraiser? I’ll throw dollars at you instantaneously especially if there is unique THP garb involved... plus it’ll help you guys!

I think Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge would be an excellent study site for Chamberlain and his students. It is a somewhat sterile environment as the only hunting pressure is quota based. I have participated in the spring turkey quota hunt for the past 4 years and in just those 4 years the turkey population seems to have diminished greatly. That’s not just my perspective. Harvest numbers are down, and hunter experiences indicated fewer turkeys. I’m not sure if it is habitat related or some other factor, but harvest is lower as well as hunter participation, and that is not good for funding management activities.

Another thing you can do is have some of your merchandise sale money go for that and have some of you sponsors like your turkey calls that you guys go through for every order take some money. To donate to turkey research. Just to give some ideas to help .you guys are true steward of the land .God bless and congrats Aaron on your marriage

Got my first public land bird today! It was in Maine which is out of state for me... I still can’t believe it all worked. I spent a ton of time on the homework and it paid off. I probably called him in from 400 yards and just mouth called him in 50 yards at a time. Wouldn’t have worked out had I not seen the many situations you guys get into. I was listening to the Dave Owens episode on the way up and he got me fired up to hunt my butt off today. Good luck up there boys - don’t forget the tick spray holy crap!

I'm gonna guess that saddle mount. Heard that they can cause issues. Works for my 870 but had to trim material off because forestock on my Shurshot stock wouldn't come full stroke without hitting the saddle mount. Little file work and touch of paint...works and looks great.

The means don't seem to justify the ends dosent it seem an unfair advantage will be given here to the hunter by "tracking gobbling activty"? and another drawback, having all the extra people and pressure on birds by everyone hunting the "peak gobbling activity."...i mean Turkeys gobble in the spring... when I can hunt them...if they don't gobble, they don't gobble, fair game, you can still hunt them..Hunting is 99% failure, If your not having fun just being out your missing the point We all know turkeys are most vulnerable when being vocal, meaning they die more. I called in more coyote during my week hunt period this year than I did turkey..... If hunters have unfair advantages(peak gobbling activity) information over hunting turkeys, doesn't that contradict protecting the populations? The turkey was extictint from my state, due to the number one problem, HUMAN PREDATION untill reintroduced in the 1970s. Thru Hunting regulations we now have a sustainable huntable population. Estimated 85,000 not as many as Georgia's 400,000. But ive got a bird every year since i started turkey hunting 2 years ago, 2 turkeys, i wonder how many a coyote takes out every year. I shot my first Turkey on the land they reintroduced those birds to, on the second to last day of the season and almost didn't go...on public land that gets hit hard every spring..I'm proud of that bird, taught me to never quit. Why should i donate money to "research" when it's already established what the problems are?.. loss of habitat and predation including human.( liberal bag limits) What we as conservationist should and can be doing right now is.. 1.predator management,(check local regulations) coyote,raccon, possom, feral cats,etc 2.restoring and procuring land with optimal habitat. Thats what we really should be donating are hard earned money to...
