Do you buy the fall turkey archery tag with your deer tags

Postby Floating Debris » Thu Sep 17, 2009 8:10 am

or did I just waste my 5 bucks?  seems every time I go for deer, all I see are turkeys....might as well whack one of them too for a little surf and turf action on the table.

I always get the combo. I have never even tried to shoot at one but keep telling myself I will. I have started hunting out of a ground blind, along with tree stands, so figure the ground blind will give me a better opportunity.

I just bought my bow tags yesterday, and I went for one. For another $5.50, I figured what the hell, although I also know that what I've done is virtually GUARANTEE that I won't see a turkey! [:D]

In NH your turkey license comes with a spring tag and a fall tag. We don't have a choice. We have a 5 day fall shotgun hunt in Oct.
The total bill is 16 dollars for the chance at two birds.

I wish we had a fall turkey season here in So. Carolina. I'd give up 2 of my 5 spring tags for one fall tag.

What is it about turkeys?  I didn't get a turkey tag my first year deer hunting (bout 7 -8 years ago), and a big tom trots by my stand the second time out.  I get a tag before hitting the woods again, and haven't seen one in range ever since.

Morgan,

I would give you my fall tag for one of your spring tags! We can only harvest one tom here in the spring.

I stopped and got one Monday so I figure I won't see any either [8D]

I always buy a turkey tag, you never know when a "suicide bird" is going to run in to your shooting lane.  I am yet to tag a turkey with my bow, but I have had several missed chances.  I had to call DNR before I found out that you can tag as many hens as you have tags.  I thought for years that the tag could only be used on a tom or bearded hen, to think of all the hens I passed on......[:'(]
