Thats to bad unit 1 has been ruined. My buddies said all my old spots are full of people. I have not been there in 7 years since before I went to N Dakota for 5 years. I know th 2 fires up there has cause havoc but hard to believe everyone has to hunt the same areas.I also hear of the large # of junior hunters and families with 3-4 kids all killing year after year. G& F needs to acess the situation. It was a premium turkey hunt for 20 years for me. I am all for kid hunters but got to limit it some how.and or less tags for adults.........BOB!.

A lot of the country was moonscaped during the fire. Not nearly as many trees or cover as there used to be. I do agree a different management approach could be used, but I was very, very surprised at the lack of people I saw on my wife's hunt during the first weekend. Quite possibly the weather factored in.

Regardless, those Gould's are beautiful birds. Amazing color on them. Congratulations.
