This just further reinforces that tpwd is run by morons. If anything the season should have been opened a week earlier, or at least stayed the same. All this is doing is making it tougher on he hunters.
Turkey season around the country opens after most of the hens are bred. A turkey hen requires only one time to fertilize one clutch of eggs, even though they will continue for a few weeks after that first time. What is the biggest complaint you hear at the beginning of turkey season most years "the gobblers were henned up" Guess that may not be the case.
Texas turkeys and heat don't mix. It gets hotter every week in the spring. The hotter it is, the less they gobble and the harder they are to hunt. Plain and simple. Opening it a week later and letting it run a week later is the exact opposite if what tpwd should have done.
