TURKEYS!!!! 346 Zone area????

Recommended Posts

theghost_03

I have hunted the 346 Winona zone area for 10 years now. Every year the other hunters with me have the discussion if it is better to be one top of the bluffs in the river valley or on the bottom. Every year I have hunted I have been fortunate enough to have some great ground on top of the bluffs. But every year it seems like the majority of the birds are halfway down or further. I was told by some of the hunters that it is easier calling them up than it is down. I did manage to harvest a nice 21 lb. tom this year. The amount of birds we do hear and see is unbeleivable however.?! But it seems like for the most part that the birds will work their way down more so than they will their way up the bluffs? Any one with any opinions would be great!! Thanks!!! GL everyone!!

I hunt the 342 Wabasha area, and every year my group and I have this same discussion, which is the best place to be, on top or down low? Luckily for us, we have both options. But the truth is every year I feel like it's different, if I had to create a loose opinion, I would say most of the birds I have seen fly down from the trees and work the top of the fields, go down the bluffs during the midday and afternoon periods, before making their ways back up the hills/bluffs to feed right before roosting. But like I said, this is very loose, as I have seen plenty of birds that don't adhere to this design...

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.
