Turkey Gun Sight in

33 posts in this topic

I just thought I would put this out there for everyone to think about. We should have a get together in march or early april, I have 40 acres just east of Jordan that we could have a FM get together and sight our guns in and stuff like that. I know last year powerstroke came over and we shot some turkey guns and the breeze. I think we could all benefit from something like that. We could each bring a box or two of turkey loads and pass the shells to try out different loads and such to get the best out of our guns and save some money by not having to buy more than 2 boxes to see what our guns shoot best. I know the first weekend of april is out for me the the 5-6th

We've kicked this around in years past, but have never had such a generous offer. I'd be interested.

I'll look into it a bit more. mnmuzzleloader, shoot me an email if you get a chance.

Thanks!

Joel

I wonder if anyone has a 3-D archery turkey target. Thats the only thing I'm going to be patterning this year.

It was a very generous offer last year and it worked out great. If we could get some folks together to hang out and talk about turkeys it would be fun. I could probably help with setup. We could build a couple pattern boards.

sounds awesome the morning will work for me, what time are you thinking powerstroke? 10 or something like that. if you are going to kato after it will take you around an hour to get there depending on where you are going... you guys can make the call, I will have some stands to put target on and I have a ton of large paper 22*34 so we have plenty of that I will see if I can burn off some turkey heads at work and then i can have them as well. if anyone else wants to come, just bring choice of turkey stopping weapon and some rubber boots farms are muddy this time of year.

2pm in Mankato? I'm doing a turkey clinic at Scheels in Mankato at 2pm on the 29th. Is that what you're going to? grin.gif

I'm 99% sure that the clinic we are going to is at Scheels. I highly doubt that there are two different clinics in Kato on the same day.

It will be nice to meet you.

Lance, I still have a huge pad of those turkey heads that I shot at last year. I will bring those and donate them to the cause. There's easily over 200 sheets there. You can get some big paper for finding pattern shape that will be great.

My sister and I will come and my friend and his bro-in-law are going to come too. We're gonna be sharing a bunch of 20ga loads for the 2 kids.

Powerstroke,

are you familiar with Mankato? There's been a few changes the past couple years.

I can give you directions for an easier route to get to the Scheels store if you want.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?

      I would think so.  You still need a passport too.  Seems like the only change is loosening up on the mandatory check in.  You only have to if they ask you too.   I never took an RABC to exempt me from the check in requirement before this change.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.

      Welcome FM Chevy!  There's lots of fish to be caught in the Mighty Mississippi.  Plenty of spots to fish from shore right in or near Hastings as well as a little up river by the Wakota Bridge.  The great thing about the river is you never know what you are going catch. Carp, Suckers, Catfish, Walleye, Sauger, Bass, Gar, Big Ol' Snapper, Leather Necks etc..Cats are just starting to spawn so they might be a little challenging and inconsistent right now.  Try some live bait straight line rigs or cranks and keep moving.  I usually don't spend more then 20-30 mins in an area before I move on.  Good luck and let us know how you do!
