Season "E"

5 posts in this topic

I disn't draw a turkey permit for the season I wanted but I was able to get a "E" season surplus tag.....better than not going at all...I hope. I've always hunted the "B" season what can I expect for the "E" season as far as the mood of the birds and chances of actually having a good hunt.

Thanks

Scott

Actually the "E" season is one of my favorites. You'll do fine.

I'll echo Borch's comments, as it is too, one of my favorites.

Season "E" in MN tends to fall smack dab at the beginning of the secondary peak in gobbling activity. Hens are moving off to sit on nests while lonesome gobblers are still very interested in breeding. Net result is usually more gobbling than a week or two previously, and some willing toms without hens.

The MN season however is set "back" 5 days later, so our calendar just switched up a bit. You should still find some active birds willing to check you out, esp. on private land that has not been hunted yet.

Good luck!

I have killed all my MN gobblers on the backside days of E so I think the push back is not a bid deal.

Weather is the largest factor. "D" has been unfortunate the past few years with stuck "low" pressure systems and days of cool rain.

I like thunderstorms rolling through the night before, but prefer mild weather in the morning hunt.

"E" is great for hunters willing take vacation to hunt MN gobblers - 4 weekdays. This year the final day (Saturday) falls on opening fishing.

Last season I hunted E, buddy tagged out 5 mins into the season, that bird was a little hungry if you know what I mean....

I heard lots of birds in the morning, but they all seemed henned up, but then again I'm cursed and haven't got one yet in 6 years.

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
