Hey guys, does anybody have any land , or know someone else that does that might be willing to either borrow or lease it out for a spring turkey hunt? My 9 year old and I would be forever indebted to you for your help. Any info is appreciated. sysco_joe @yahoo.com

Sysco:

Welcome!

Get your tag, that's the first stumbling block. Or at least apply so that you could buy a tag in the spring.

As for land, it's getting tight around where I live, and I like to keep several options open for myself, family and friends. However, no matter where you live, if you're willing to put in the time and work necessary to scout, find land, and ask permission, you will be rewarded for your troubles.

Spend some time looking into zones/opportunities you currently have. Next, look for the landowners list that will be coming out here in the next few months. These are great starting locations. From there, ask the landowners if he knows any people that allow turkey hunting on their land. There is almost never an easy/cheap path into this turkey hunting thing, but it can't be overstated that you will be rewarded for your hard work/efforts.

Thanks for posting, and good luck!

Joel

If you are looking to lease, look in the classifieds -

problem is adds will appear in the paper after the application deadline.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
