Default When do you kill your birds?

I killl mine within the first halfhour and betwween 9-10 am. Those seem to be the best time for me.

It depends what state, but here in Ohio I would have to say usually within the first hour but then again I'm pretty positive I've shot them at just about any time you could ask for before noon. I would say for the most part they are within the first hour of daylight and from 9:30 to 11 range.

I've shot over 90% of my turkeys after 10:30. I've only shot 2 or 3 before 8:00.

Usually just an hour after Day Light we have some luck. But a few have been taken in that last hour or two before Noon, which is Ohio's cut off time.

I think I've killed all my birds before 9-930. I've shot a couple within a half hour of fly down but most have taken a little longer. Never shot any close to quitting time though (noon for us in PA).

SHHH! Turkeys don't gobble after 9AM. Go home, get a nice breakfast, you won't miss a thing.

I have had my share of after they hop off the roost deal sealers, but most of them have been after 9 when there seems to be less pressure and the girls are headed to the nest. Expecially later in the season.

Oddly enough mostly between 9 and 10 although I have killed one or two in the afternoon.
