Spring Turkey Hunting

Recommended Posts

Birddog

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.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
