I had a 1 in 5 chance, make that 1 in 3, two tags went to land owners.

I don't get it, zone 435, Morton to Granite Falls a ton of birds and only 5 tags confused.gif

Oh well I guess the DNR know what they'er doing.

No tag for me frown.gif unless someone in the southeast part of the state will help me out HINT, HINT smile.gif.

Have a Safe Labor Day weekend

Thanks for letting us know!

It got past me once again this year. I knew I had to get there to do it, and it just didn't happen. Will have to focus more on deer hunting is all I guess.

As for low fall tag numbers, it's my supposition that they're reluctant to hand out too many fall tags in areas that are just getting underway in terms of turkey numbers. Reason being, I think, has to do with being allowed to take a hen in the fall. High hen mortality, esp. going into winter and all of its unknowns isn't a good way to expand the wild turkey population, esp. on the fringes of its current range.

My 12 yr old daughter and her friend applied as a group and drew tags so it should be a good time! Good luck to those going.

I'll be doing a fall turkey seminar at the Gander in Lakeville just before the season starts. Stay tuned for details.....

My son and I each drew a fall tag again.

I just picked up some new arrows and broadheads at the Gander in Lakeville yesterday. Hopefully my schedule will allow us to make your seminar.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
