Spring Turkey Hunting

11 posts in this topic

Greetings,

I was hoping to get some advice about which midwest state would be the best for myself and my daughter to go turkey this spring? I would be needing a out of state license, therefore a guided hunting trip may be my only choice.

Thanks,

Dave

Try Nebraska in Verdigre I believe it's over the counter tags.A lot of public land and not too many hunters.Lots of birds.

I know of an outfitter in the Black Hills that is good and just helped me on his own good graces. If you are interested I can give you his website and number. It can be great hunting out there. I also believe they are licsensed

in Nesbraska too. You can email me at elevatorgod@hotmail.com.

Like previously mentioned... Nebraska and South Dakota are two choice prospects. Both over the counter tags and opportunities for multiple tags. NE archery opens Mar 25th and April 12th for SoDak. Plenty of public ground in each state so you wouldn't have to go through an outfitter.

Thanks to everyone for the reply's. I have been out of town, but I will start planning a trip. It sounds like S.D or Neb are the states to try my luck.

Thanks,

I believe that the first deadline for the prairie units has passed. You do need to apply for the Black Hills liscenses but they are unlimited. For a good outfitter check into turkey track outfitters which is Ron Schara's camp. You'll find more info on the Minnesota Bound site.

If you do get to the town of Verdigre try going into town and getting a plat book.There is public heading out west of town.I might butcher this but you can also check on Niabrara just a town over.Right now I can not be exact of location without the book on me.If you try and knock on doors they are nice to let people hunt.Not too many people bowhunting them.Decoy's that all depends on your birds.I do not use decoy's often only once in awhile.I have better luck without.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
