Turkeys??? Quick Help!

4 posts in this topic

Well all, I am new to the site but thought I would throw it out there: My little brother drew a turkey tag for this area (From Fergus to DL) and the last two mornings we hunted hard: (Up at 4:30 and sitting in a blind until 9:00) without hearing a single bird! His tag is only good until Sunday and I thought I would see if anyone in the area of Zone 239 has any ideas of where I could put him on a gobbler. I'd be willing to trade info. or access to some turkeys... for access to bowhunting land (for deer), or a crappie or Muskie outing if someone wants. I am fairly new to the area and just can't figure out why we haven't heard or had a chance at a turkey. His license is only good through Sunday, so it's basically a Sat. or Sun. hunt for him. I will be with calling (I have decoys, blind, etc.) but wondered if anyone in the area could help me out. I would love to get him a turkey. (I plan to hunt the archery season at the end of May, hopefully by then the turkeys are back to the area we have been trying on.) Just thought I would see if anyone can help me out: You can email me at dloutdoors@hotmail.com or send a PM here. Thanks

What part of the area were you hunitng in? I also hunt in that zone but I am out on the far west side. We only got one jake but I saw a lot of hens and heard a fair amount of gobbling but I think they were already with hens and not interested. I could help you out for the bow season if you are interested. If you want you can drop me an email and let me know if you are going. I have access to private land and there is some public land that I am pretty sure will hold birds. I love turkey hunting and have been pretty successful with a gun but have not tried bow hunting for them yet. brian_anderson1@msn.com

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
