You can hunt them with a rifle during the fall in Oklahoma.
In West Virginia, they use rifles in the spring. When I hunted there, I didnt dare take decoys. They have a lot more accidents because of it.

Lord help us if it catches on here in Ar....:frown:
WHY ? Are you afraid ?? or are you afraid for everyone else ????

Because I'm not worried about it Nor do I need anyone worring about it for ME...

This NANNY STATE BS is about to drive me crazy.... :smack:

How a turkey dies in my opinion is IRRELEVANT.. its still DEAD... And if you are afraid then STAY HOME ... Geezz

More hunter are injured and killed from falling out of Treestands each season than any Gun shots....... I'm sure there are some that would love to ban them to.... If you dont like it DONT USE IT...

Theres a big difference here. Deer hunting just about everyone is in a tree shooting down. turkey hunting, everyone is on the ground shooting at ground level. i am quite sure you would pee all over yourself when a rifle bullet whizzes by your head from a rifle

Wild turkeys with a rifle = cheating.

(That's from a guy used to working for them in the Ozarks and calling them up nice and close....not a guy who wants to get into an ethical debate about whether it's legal or not! :biggrin: )

Amen to that! We won't have any turkeys.
Why is that :confused: This comment and those like it are absurd...IMHO

No one mention a bag limit change :confused:

How a Turkey dies has nothing to do with what weapon He is slayed with :smack:
