Awesome hunt!

3 posts in this topic

Last saturday was the opening day of turkey hunting for my dad and I. On our way out to the woods he tells me "You can take first crack at a gobbler." Don't know if he regrets saying that, but I am happy he did. We weren't set up long and we hear gobbling everywhere, mostly in the distance. About an hour into the season we hear one close. My dad calls in this great tom. He came in full strut and I nailed him at 35 yards. He weighed 23 lbs 9 ounces, 9 1/4 inch beard, and 1 inch spurs. One hour into the hunt and my season is done. So it was my turn to call one in for him. After nothing the rest of saturday and sunday we were on our last day due to work commitments. I call in 3 jakes 50 minutes into that days hunt and it was over. Not a huge bird but a nice turkey anyways. What a great 3 days of hunting. And what great memories were made. Here is a couple photos of my bird. I knew I should of signed up for the HSO turkey contest.

Congratulations on a dandy bird dukhnt.

As the father of my own turkey hunting son, I can pretty much guarantee your dad doesn't regret it in the least.

Awesome memories for both of you.

Thanks for sharing your story.

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
