Just a few hours ago while enjoying a beverage on deck I was pleasantly suprised to whitness 2 dozen or so odd wild turkeys march across my bow heading up river and up the beach. Organized by hieght they went single file, slowly intent on some destination known only to the most senior of urban turkey society. Never have I seen even 1 one venture this close to the denaturalized zones. There leader must be very persausive indeed. Just thought I'de share.

That's cool Kobanon. I saw at least a dozen near the mouth of the Minnesota about a week ago. I also saw some otters swimming around Pike Island. I've never seen them around there before, have you?

Since your talkin turkeys, I had 8 with two toms, one really nice bearded one, and 6 hens. But what makes this so odd is that I live in the heart of east St. Paul. We only have about an acre behind our house and the and the apartment buildings and the last two days they have been browsing. Waiting til sun up to see if there still there today.

I saw a flock of turkeys along side of I494, just east of the Mississippi River, a couple of weeks ago. They were just feeding on the side of the hill.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
