RE: States that shoot hens
Spring season in MO you can harvest 2 turkeys with a visible beard (tom, jake, bearded hen) and in the fall you can harvest 2 either sex with a shotgun and 2 either sex with a bow.
Alot of people have a hard time shooting hens but since we have a fall season with lots of birds it doesn't bother me to shoot them in the fall. I will pass on them in the spring. I however don't like to shoot gobblers in the fall. I would prefer to see them strutting and gobbling in. Just my preference.
