april 18 - may 15 youth dates april 16&17 don't know why after more than 20 yrs with the season opening the last week of april they moved it up a week. means more of the season, toms will have hens with them. are they trying to cut down on the harvest? wish the youth season was the weekend before the one its on now. most states youth season is atleast a week before regular season. you guys have any thoughts?
