Got tags for my 10,12 and 14 year old this year. Found a nice spot and need to get out and scout.  Any suggestions for scouting as I have never scouted turkeys?  Should I be out there looking for poop on the ground to find their night roosting spot?  Do they roost in several spots or typically one? Should I scout in the am or eve?  Sorry for all the questions but I'm as my kids would say "a newb". I love the permits cost me $8.50 for all three boys.  I'm not hunting, rather just trying to be their guide.  Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I like to park and listen for them gobbling on the roost just before first light. Then come back mid day to locate the roost. I normally end up hunting them in the fields where I watch them spend most of their time. Most of my scouting is done at long range using my ears and binoculars

I'll be hunting a new area up north where we Deer hunt. It's all deep woods with no crop fields at all but we have seen a bunch of them up there in the last few years. Seems like they call or gobble less, not sure if that is because there is lots of things to eat them up there? Could be a little harder hunt then where we hunted down by Houston, MN for years.

Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans. ;)

Silly goose,never use a turkey call unless you are hunting. Great way to make call shy birds.

I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong

 

Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
