So if I said I drew a Central tag with 0 points, it would ruff some feathers?

I didn't know you had to put in for the same unit every year...just one more reason the LE turkey system is a very bad, opportunity killing system.

I think this is ridiculous! I'm frustrated that I didn't draw with 2 points in the Central region. It's turkey for crying out loud! We will see how many years this goes before I draw out, but if its 5+ like some of you are seeing, it ends up being an $80+ turkey tag when you finally draw...

If you want to play you have to be willing to pay.

When there are only so many tags to be drawn for the LE turkey hunt and a lot of hunters who want to go after them a couple of weeks early then it is going to take some time for you to draw.

If you don't like paying that $10 every year and not get a tag then I suggest that you look at the general turkey hunt where there is just the tag fee.

You don't. I could apply for another region next year and use my points there. It just seems stupid to use 6 points to draw a tag that only requires 1 or 2. My econ professor would remind me that sunk costs are irrelevant and that I should make the choice that is rational in the moment regardless of what I've done in the last 6 years. The truth is that part of the reason that I love the turkey hunt is that it is close to home. I can hunt a few mornings during the week and still get to work for half the day. I can take my 8 year old and when he gets tired, we head home and it's not a big deal because I can just head back up that evening or the next morning. I don't really want to drive south for 2 or 3 days and have the hunt be over for the year but needing 7 points to draw a tag is nuts so here we are.

I will still do OTC like I do every year that don’t draw, it’s just surprising to see what it takes.

I've given up the Turkey hunt here. LE and GS OTC. I think it will be a tuff hunt this year with the lack of moisture. LE people will be hiking a little higher in elevation to find birds, or, they will be hanging around the feed lots.
