Joel will be putting on two turkey hunting seminars at the Lakeville Gander Mountain stores for both beginners and advanced hunters alike. Seminar dates and titles are as follows:

Monday, March 24th, 7PM - "Spring Turkey Hunting - Basics for the Beginner and Advanced Hunter"

Thursday, April 3rd, 7PM - "Spring Turkey Hunting - Advanced Tactics for All"

These seminars will start at 7pm, and run approximately one hour. Topics will include, but are not limited to: wild turkey biology, calling, hunting tactics, breeding phase periods, shotgun/archery strategies, and other Minnesota-specific turkey hunting information.

Joel will be available before and after the seminar for any questions you might have. See you there!

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.

Excellent seminar Joel I'm glad I made it, you did an awesome job in helping the Newer Turkey hunters like myself and the more seasoned Turkey hunters that attended.

Thanks and nice meeting you Joel!

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.

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
