Poor Turkey season in the NW La parishes again!?
Very earlier spring and mild winter proved to be disaster for our Turkey season. The very very late opening of season is also a major factor in the poor results that we experienced again this year. Also a very noticeable increase in the coyote population that is exploding into a very real problem contributed to the lack of sign, gobbling and the population of birds where they used to be somewhat plentiful. Well at least you could find a few to hunt anyway!
Turkey season was happening the last two weeks of February and the first two weeks of March in the NW La area. By the time season opened on the calendar it was all but over, again!
Several of my friends and myself have decided we are going to make an attempt to do something about the coyotes and we are leaning toward hunting the turkeys when it is turkey season for the turkeys.
Headed back out to Montague county Texas where we can have a successful season. We would much rather spend a few bucks, ($ 100 ) and bag our limit and have an enjoyable and productive hunt than to waste time and money fooling around in the sportsman's paradise!
