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.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.
    • mrpike1973
      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.
    • Ron Vroom
      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
    • Alex wilhelmi
      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
