Re: Lottery Selection-Sherburne WMA!

Totally agree that something needs to be done about not only the lack of turkeys in Sherburne WMA but also the feral pig population.According to the regs,I should be able to blast a pig or two as WMA's allow feral hog hunts with the same weapons used for whatever season underway at same time and turkey shot should do a number on a pig,at close range.My understanding is that Sherburne WMA was one of the WMA's that had helicopter hog hunting(only LAWLF allowed to participate)and not sure how successful they were and that was at least two-three seasons back.The way I look at it is Wifey and I enjoy being out there and spotting,hearing,spooking a gobbler lagniappe.We intend to fish as well and many years ago,I was fortunate enough to bag a banded jake that weighed about 12 lbs and had a beard almost 3 inches long!!!Perhaps LAWLF can set up hog traps like the one I spotted just last week in Pearl River WMA.I attended last week's Public Opinion Meeting at Ponchatoula High and it does appear that LAWLF gonna shorten by one day the Wild Turkey Season in Sherburne but think that will occur next season.Thank God they listened to public opinion and did NOT reduce teal limits from 6-4!!Pays to voice opposition!!
P.S. Why can't the LAWLF release some wild turkeys out there as I know they band them!!
