Is Social Media Really Ruining Public Land Turkey Hunting?

Show Notes

We're going deep this week on the Southern Ground Hunting Podcast as we discuss the elephant in the room. The question "Is social media really ruining public land hunting?" We've heard it talked about on different platforms in recent months, but as turkey seasons open up across the country, you can't deny that some of the turkey hunting gold mines of past years have turned into a circus. Our guest, Joey Bell, talks about his home state of Tennessee and some of the issues he believes have affected a once great turkey hunting state.

The truth is, hunting facebook groups have absolutely contributed to the amount of pressure we're seeing right now in these public hunting areas. "Not looking for your honey holes, but could someone tell me a good wma to hunt in _____ state?" Does that sound familiar? It seems innocent and it probably is, but broadcasting it to a group with 13,000 members is probably not a great idea. Join us on this hot button issue that many states are currently facing right now. We don't know all of the answers, but we do have opinions. Enjoy!
