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.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
