Turkeys????

5 posts in this topic

So I checked my trail camera's this weekend and was very surprised to see 3 wild turkeys pictured on it. Of all the hours I've spent in the woods, I've never seen nor heard them before. Those of you that either hunt somewhat relative to Mahnomen County (eastern part) or drive through on a reg basis. Have you seen any of this?

I thought I read, a while back that the DNR was releasing some turkeys in the TRF area and I know they have been showing up more predominatly just south of DL. I guess it was maybe just a matter of time.

They released i think two bunches of 12 just east of Twin Valley where i work, that was 4 or 5 years ago. They are rapidly expanding in the river bottoms. I assume if they are truely wild they are the realatives of the ones that were released, the ones by ada aren't wild, there is also a bunch just north of gary that aren't wild either, i was shown the map where people have seen broods, lots are going towards mahnomen and some north. We hope to have a spring season 09, but might not be until 2010.

I guess I didn't realize they released some near Twin Valley too. It would be great if they start a limited hunt once they become more predominate in the area. Just another season and reason to get out.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
