Which State?
« on: April 22, 2011, 03:18:04 PM »
Ok Turkey Gurus, I have been in deep discussion with one of my turkey killin partners on which state has the hardest turkeys to kill and I told him I would get a head count and opinion from more than just someone in Alabama.

Now me and him both have hunted several states chasin longbeards and Alabama has the most stubborn, heard-headed birds I have ever seen in my life.

Where do you think the hardest turkeys are to kill?
Hunting is a way of life: Love it, Teach it, Live it. But most of all.... RESPECT IT and pass it on!

Florida is tough because of the terrain but I have heard from many hunters who hunt all over that Alabama birds are very tough... They have a tenancy to stop gobbling the second they pitch out of the roost.

i would think bama due to their liberal limit, terrain and hunting pressure.  i agree though that every state has its hard birds to hunt, try public land hunting and you'll see what i mean.

it happens in NY like that too HM , but terrain probably is the answer...NY has lots of public land and you can find the turks

Pennsylvania public land, you haven't seen terrain like this unless you have hunted the Rockies. The birds have been known to talk to you all day long here, but they aren't running up and down the mountains to chase a lonely hen  ##$%#1119

Louisiana too!  We are just starting to grow a large population and now that it is the "fad" to turkey hunt, the birds are getting smarter.

Our birds in Alabama have to be one of the toughest.  Our terrain in Monroeville has a lot of steep hills that keep you guessing where the gobble comes from.  They are tough.
When I die bury me where I can hear the turkeys gobble in the Spring time.

I think it is even. I hunt Alabama, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Missouri and New Jersey. None was easy.
