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.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
