Not that I know of but I may try to get on a hunt in another county. Do they gobble any there in the fall? Not much here but sometimes.

I have played around with decoys the last two years but the jury is still out. I have not decided if I like them or not..

No fall season here in Georgia either.  Friends in Texas tell me they hunt them there in the fall.  They also say they can use a rifle to shoot one.

you think spring time is tuff. fall i think is alot tougher  the hens are every wear . the toms just kinda hang out , just waiting for the hens to line up in their pecking order . the best way is to just roost the birds the night before , and be there bright and early , and play it by ear when things start to happen  you will be the first to know . and the bad thing is you will have hens coming from all directions . so sittin real still is important .
