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.

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
