Spring Turkey Hunting Pressure

The same scenario for deer holds true for turkey.  We currently have over 165,000 acres in 3 states spread across 79 counties.   During the 2019-2020 season we had 1,036 turkey hunting spots.   The average turkey spot is 160 acres m/l.  

During the 2019-20 season MAHA hosted 207 total spring turkey hunters spread across 3 states for 3 seasons from early April through May 31st. If all 207 turkey hunters hunted at the same time, that would average 864 m/l acres per hunter. Not all our land has a huntable turkey population, but most of it does. Note: Members can hunt multiple states for multiple seasons, so those members will be counted numerous times.
