Only 4 Days.....!

4 posts in this topic

We will be up Saturday the 26th for a week. We are staying over on bear island but will be on Vermilion for a couple days. How have the water temps been? Any bait shops still have extra-large leeches? Any reports on smallies, wallies, or pike from either lake? We are getting excited....... laugh.gif

BFD, I was in the area this weekend. I spoke to a crew that were serious muskie hunters from Illinois. They were focusing on Vermillion and said it has been all around slow because the water temps are so warm. My bro-inlaw told me that he heard they are hammering eyes off of Hoodoo point in 20 feet of water useing downriggers. All I know is that Burntside was very warm and unproductive. Hope this helps. Good luck, have fun. BC

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).
