I say educate the birds, make em weary! Get em scared! Not as many shot on opening day. Then the late comers will have a better chance.  :) Why not make it a little bit of a challenge? Sounds like a good way of weeding out the good callers/hunters out from the bad?  :dunno:
Issue with that is that it might also frustrate the new comers and make them not want to do it anymore. The outdoors and its bounty isn't just for the good callers/hunters. Its for everybody. I agree with not educating the birds or any animal if possible.
I was just giving a different point of view. I agree also to not educate the birds. But people being people are still gonna do whatever they think is right in their own mind.  :)

Sorry, had to go turkey hunting and I was thinking about this subject: if calling the day before season would be an issue wouldn't the youth turkey season the week before be an issue.
Of course I am a legend, I'm just not as chattie as most.

I tend to help with any youth hunts but threewolves has a point, let them hunt turkeys free for there first go with one opener.

The youth season is also based on the turkey behavior.  It’s basically a “Quality Turkey” season that gives youth an edge.  Considering the decline of hunter participation, I wouldn’t be too concerned with the youth educating birds.  :twocents:
