Turkey hunters in Missouri are once again being warned of what’s expected to be a difficult season. The Department of Conservation says poor production in recent years is making it harder to find those two-year-old gobblers. Turkey Biologist Jason Isabelle says each of the last three years have resulted in poor production. Young gobblers are generally easier to hunt because they’re not as associated with the hens as older birds, making them more likely to respond to a hunter’s call. The spring season begins with a youth hunt April 6th and 7th, followed by the regular season from April 15th through May 5th.
