Weekend Youth Hunt

6 posts in this topic

We had one of the youth hunts set up by the MN DNR and the NWTF here in Ottertail County over the weekend. I was fortunate enough to take this young man and his dad out after a longbeard. This is what he ended up with by 6:50 a.m. Saturday morning. I would have to say that this hunt was more exciting than any other hunt I've been on myself. What a great morning. I know we heard 40-50 gobbles in about a 50 minute span. The bird weighed in at 24 lb. 3 oz. and had a 10 1/4" beard. We didn't get an accurate measurement on the spurs, but will soon. Both the son and dad are hooked on turkey hunting now. What a blast!

Good Luck to all!

AWESOME!!!! I personally would like to thank the DNR and the NWTF....my son was one of the 8 that hunted in 440. Although he didn't get a bird he had a blast and so did I video taping the hunt. Special thanks to my sons guide Mark Iverson and the hunt master Tom Kalahar. In case the two of you read this he has been driving his mother nuts with the turkey calling getting ready for my season in May. He may just be able to call me one in, you never know!

A young hunter from 440 got a Jake on Sat but no reports for Sunday.

Thanks again to the above two and also all the other guides that helped make this a great experience for these young hunters!!! Another thanks goes out to all the landowneers that gave permission to hunt. Without them of course this wouldn't have happened at all.

Thanks to all!

My daughter was lucky enought to be chosen last year to hunt at Chester Woods Park near Rochester. We had a blast and she was able to harvest a nice Tom. She was bummed not to be drawn for a regular tag this year. I'm hoping this picture comes up. http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g70/2044mustang/DaniellesFirstTurkey-09-1.jpg

      Blue Ribbon in Oakdale. Kathy's Bait off Rice and Maryland. If you go up north and drive through the cities, Vados off Central and highway 10 is the best.

      I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore.

      I would also suggest small sucker, I also had good luck with just a crappie minnow on the hook. Depends on the lake really.

      White jig heads with a white tube, if that's not working use a buzz bomb with a sucker head or tail on the treble
