Since the guys were stating some of their regs for their state, ill chime in.

In Michigan you are allowed 2 turkeys in a year....if your lucky enough to draw a permit in both spring and fall....spring hunting....You must kill a turkey with a visible BEARD (basically a gobbler hunt, ruling out the hens, although i could have killed 3 beared hens thus far, but let em slide :wink: )....fall, either speceis is legal, no beard specification....shotguns or muzzleloading shotguns with shot no bigger than #4's, traditional or compound bows are legal...corssbows if you have a special permit because of a dissability. Rifles are NOT legal to hunt with. As far as motion decoys for turkey hunting...wind powered only...no jerk strings or fancy mechanisms to move the decoy.....not that ive need them so far. :tongue: :thumbsup:

The turkeys are all flocked up up here, but the weather is starting to break. So, i expect them to bust up shortly....Seeing lots of big Toms on the farm i hunt, so i have high hopes for opening day. :biggrin: ...but you know how gobbler huntin' can go. :eek: :rofl:

Whenever your season rolls around...best of luck. :thumbsup:
