Youth Turkey results are in!!!

6 posts in this topic

I was giving up hope that my sister would get drawn for her first turkey hunt, but I got home today to find a fantastic email.

She got drawn for 461!! We will hunt April 19-20. I promised to be her "adult" for this hunt and now that I know we've been drawn I am ecstatic!!!!! grin.gif\:Dcrazy.gifgrin.gif

Congrats to the other people selected for youth hunts. I am honored to help teach my little sister the joy of turkey hunting. I hope she had fun at Firearms Safety last night.

How do you find out the results for the youth hunt?

We didn't give them an E-Mail and he has no DNR number yet?

An email was sent to the successful drawers. A letter with information on a clinic will follow in the next week.

We are excited to have filled all 30 of our mentor spots in 239 and 240. That means 30 kids get to hunt!

I'm especially excited that my son gets to hunt in 240 this year during the youth hunt. Should be a gas.

I provided my email addy for a reply. The youth lottery details are not on the web yet. I assume packets will be out by the end of the week.

Congrats MJcatfish on the success in your zones.

This is great to hear. I mentored a boy a couple years back. It's well worth the time whether your the mentor or your kids are drawn for the permit.

Thanks to those who are participating in the Youth hunt this year.

That's great to hear, my daughter was drawn 2 years ago for one of the first hunts at chester woods near rochester. The first day was nodda, not even a gobble. The next day we moved to a different location and they were almost on top of us in the A.M. She was able to harvest a nice tom, I was happy that we didn't see anything the first day. It taught her to be patient and that it's not always about getting, it's about being outdoors at the crack of dawn and all of the other things in nature that make the rest of us get up in the wee hours of the morning hoping to see that big tom or buck. congrats again and good luck on your hunt!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...
