Turkey Artists

6 posts in this topic

I was thinking of acquiring some wild turkey art-I have just about every other game critter in print somewhere on the walls or waiting to be put on the walls.

So I was wondering, who paints the best turkey or turkey scenes? Doesn't necessarily have to be a hunting scene, but would like to see some strutters. I've seen some nice prints at the NWTF banquets, but never bothered to see who did the work. I have a pretty good idea of the cream of the crop artists in waterfowl, a few names for upland small birds, but don't have any names in mind with turkey.

Anybody care to throw a few out?

Scott,

Check out the Art Barbarian's in the sponser forums. There are several artist there that do some very nice turkey work. Just pick out the print you like best. \:D

We got a Michael Sieve print called "Golden Fan Club" through Art Barbarians a few years back. Sieve does some neat work.

Hautmann brothers have some nice prints and some turkey stamp wins to proof it. I believe Jim and Joe have both won.

I have a couple from a local guy Jim Hansel, he has a great story and does some awesome work.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
