Turkeys Turkeys Everywhere!!

9 posts in this topic

Saw so many turkeys this last weekend deer hunting, that I couldn't believe it.

Hope I get a license next year. Shot a nice tom last year.

One bunch of turkeys I saw included 26 turkeys!

Hey Hammer Handle,

where were you hunting? We had about 30-75 turkeys in one set of woods that sounded like a bulldozer coming through the woods. I was in the Frazee/Vergas/Dent country.

I was in Douglas County.

Made a drive for deer, scared 11 young toms out of the woods (ran across an open field). Got to the enter of the drive, 26 more turkeys (hens and larger toms). These flew up...but were all back the next day.

I was in the Wadena area and there is not a hunt for turkeys where I hunt. There was however 3 different flocks of birds making more noise than I've ever heard from turkeys before. I was in heaven. Springtime is great for calling to Toms, but if youre interested in hearing all of the vocalizations of the turkey and the differences in hens voices, fall is the time.

I was calling with my mouth and I had a big bodied jake going crazy. Its it april yet?!?

Last year I got my first turkey license (after 3 years of applying).

Was walking in the woods to the place where I was going to hunt, and I scared up a large tom who flew in front of me. Shot him...season was over....

What dumb luck...but the season ended too fast.

Hammer:

You missed out on all the fun! This year it'll be way better, even if you don't take a bird. I'm in the process of making my spring plans right now, and I'm getting excited just dreaming about it.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
