I might try to get something going up there, but they've got a top-notch guy in Mike Foster who gives a good turkey hunting seminar. He's also a Primos Pro-staffer.

Or better then calling, go over there and look around and then look at the grease board at the liscense counter. Even if he isn't presenting at least you get to do a little window shopping \:\)

Just a reminder, I'll be at the Gander in Lakeville tonight at 7PM. Would love to meet more FMers, and will be tailoring the seminar to the experience level of the folks present.

Did the DNR Wild Turkey Clinic this Saturday and had 33 folks show up, well-surpassing both the amount I had anticipated and had materials for!

Hope to see you all there.

Awesome to finally put a name to the face. Glad you liked it; hope the next one goes just as well. It's difficult to keep these interesting from year to year, so it's great to have good members like yourself there to ask questions and bring up new topics! Thank you!!!!

Another good one!....... Thanks Joel!

I could listen to Joel talk Turkeys for hours on end the forums here are great but live action is the best for learning.

My favorite parts of Joel's seminars are when he does his Turkey mannerism's or impersonation's...... grin.gif

I swear he's part Turkey.

Yeah, I've been thinking about that. Different parts of the state. Would need to meet up with you guys up in the north country for some late ice action. I used to be a trout fisherman in a past life. I dare say I did some light guiding out in the Yellowstone area. I could be persuaded, but it'd be rusty like an old truck.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
