I really enjoyed all the discussion, stories, pictures and even the ribbing that went on. Congrats to everone who was able to get out and hunt these great birds. It actaully was pretty close. Several teams were one nice bird away from first place. To those who won prizes please send me your mailing address at jeffonthewater@aol.com . I'll be heading out of town so the prizes probably won't go out until the first week in July.

Thanks everyone for the great time!

This year's contest was a success, due in large part to all of the hard work Borch has put into organizing such a fine event. Furthermore, he made some pretty good looking calls for prizes that I'm dying to get my hands on. Thanks for all the hard work Borch!

I'd also like to thank Chris Walls, owner of Wall's Calls - http://www.wallscalls.com/ for his support of the contest. Chris not only makes calls that look good, his slates (I own two!) are the softest, most versatile, and most realistic pot/striker calls I've had the pleasure of using. As I continually work to rid myself of extra calls and accessories while turkey hunting, these calls rode in my vest all season long. Thanks Chris!!!

Last but not least, thanks to all who participated. I learned quite a bit from our collective experiences, as every turkey hunt contains some nugget of turkey wisdom. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for putting on a great contest. I guess the Turkey Trash Talkers need to eat some crow (when crow season starts).

Well done for everyone who harvested a bird - congradulations!

Congradulations to Team 4 and everyone that scored a bird this season.

Success should not always be measured in the harviest. It's what you learn from each hunt and what you can add to your bag of tricks for the next one.

This was a lot of fun and I learned so much from everyone.(Thank you jnelson)

Thank you CW and Borch for donating the calls. They look great. I guess I will have to contact CW Calls grin.gif.

To next season, happy hunting and straight shooting.

Way to go my fellow teammates on Team 4. Thanks for picking my and Dietz "slack". LOL As I posted earlier, this was my first season after longbeards and I had an absolute BLAST!!! I'm an avid bowhunter and definitely had my chances this spring. I'm just glad that my calling was effective, especially being I don't have a mentor, except for all the guys here on the Turkey forum. I'm already looking forward to next spring!!!

Congrats as well to everyone who entered regardless of whether you killed or not. Specially my fellow team mates. When the contest was first mentioned I simply thought it would be a entertaining way to compete against those in my (original) home state. I doubt that I'll ever have another chance to have a bird like mine respond and saunter in to my pleading calls. Good news is that his gentics are on and around the wonderful piece of private property that I have the exclusive priveledge to hunt.

Now it's on to more bass tournaments. Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer.

Congrats team 4 you guys had it hands down.

Thanks to everyone that particapated. This was greatest time sharing, ribbing, and the hunt stories were awsome to say the least. it also feels like a sucessful hunt without even getting a bird.

A special thanks to borsh and all the guys that put this together and of course the guys that donated the prizes.

Can't wait til the next turkey season.

Congrats to the winning team and also all who were skilled enough to harvest a real trophy.

I wish my bow would have been finished so I could have went out. Oh well, theres always next season if picked.

For the ones that didnt harvest a bird, I'm sure it was a learning experience and there is always next season. Its just fun to get out into the outdoors.

Thanks to all who helped put this on. Nice job.

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.
    • MinDak Hunter
      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow     
    • otterman91105
      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
    • delcecchi
      Vermilion is less than 20 miles... Or eagle nest 3 (and 1 and 2) are right next door.   You might check them out.
    • rundrave
      Love seeing guys out training dogs but you can really do  some serious damage to your dogs neck if it runs hard for a long distance before being stopped suddenly when the check cord is attached to a collar. I would suggest a harness instead that has attachment at the back that you can clip your check cord to. It will also flow off the back and less likely to get tangled up in the legs and belly which can also be dangerous especially when in the water.   It doesnt look deep where you are but you never know whats under the water that could snag your check cord. Sorry dont mean to preach but I have seen it first hand where a dog has been seriously injured from this. I know the prey drive and hard charge these dogs have, but you got to keep them safe.   good luck

      Can you keep smallies from the Ottertail?  Thought there was a restriction on them in there.
    • Chill62
      If I go on an infected water I get it cleaned regardless.  Granted 99% of the time I fish a non-infected lake but still get it cleaned just incase.
