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.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
