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.

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
