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.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
