I have a 5 hour drive to my spot, shouldn't be a problem filling the tag, but I only have one day to hunt so it could be a small one. Anything will help though, I can't wait!

Well, I'm planning on putting my time in every single day but my last (May 8,9,10,11, but not 12...gotta be on Mille Lacs that day). This is my first time. I'm getting outfitted with some calls and decoy by a friend, my spot is pretty sweet, and I'm camo-ed up and ready to go. I'll be patterning loads at the range in the next couple weeks. My only problem is I have no idea what to expect. Don't want to get too confidant but looking at the aerial photos it looks like a really sweet spot! 347E private land in Fillmore county, wish I could start tomorrow!

Let's pump it up around here! Team 1 Domination! You all have to get a bird so I don't have to be counted on for anything, got it?

Name sounds good guy's. Looks like we have alot of diehard turkey hunters and a great team!!! Hopefully a few of us can connect! I watched 30 plus birds yesterday on the land I'm hunting with alot of respectable toms in the group. This afternoon I watched another group of nice toms and a bunch of hens. Surpriseingly a few of the toms were strutting in this weather! :shocked.

I've also been watching several groups, in fact i've gota pic. under the post taking the fun out of scouting. But i've gota tom picked out. The last time i saw him, he was within forty yards of the road, so i gota pretty good look at him. But his 1st beard is about 4 inches and the second beard is about 12 to 13 inches, with about 1.5 or better hooks. Either way, he is the largest bird i've seen the the 12 years i've been hunting turkeys. So he's on my wish list.

last year (long story short) the old man shot a jake because he didn't see the 8 in. beard behind the hill. According to my "spy", that old bird is still there. Time will tell, April 23rd is approaching fast grin.gif

I made it out for a drive this morning, and it was a little cool. The deer were out in full force, but the turkeys must have slept in. I got a chance to talk to one of the farmers and he said that the turkeys have bunched up again. He had a flock of about 30 in the pasture last night. With five toms in full strut. so another week of cold weather, then some rain, then warming up, then go time,

Picked up a couple decoys and a call. Wish this weather would warm up a little so I could get outside and pattern the shotgun. I watched a turkey hunt on TV on Saturday morning to keep me motivated.

Finally gota chance to get out again and with the sun and the little warmer weather it was nice to see a bunch of strutters lining up along the wood edges. I even found a crippled tom, that had an injuried leg. I've never seen a turkey waddle like a duck until yesterday.

Well, things have not turned out the way I was hoping for the opener of the MI season that I was hunting. It was the annual trip with my dad, but he fights forest fires for the USFS and was called away at 5:20 am today to go to Georgia and fight the fire in the Okachobie swamp. So, our trip has been put on hold for the time being, it is ok though because we hunt private land so my tom should still be there. Good luck everyone!

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you
    • delcecchi
      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
    • monstermoose78
      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.
    • going4it
      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
