Lucky

5 posts in this topic

Drew the last turkey week. Wasn't sure how they would be responding that late. I set up the first morning just as it was starting to get light. Was using a blind for the first time. In 25 mins. a nice tom came out of his roost and landed 25 yards away. Boom, done. 9" beard. Lucky.

Welcome to FishingMinnesota, and the turkey forum, glad to have you. First off, I must say, pics please!

Luck comes in many forms, but it tends to happen the most when you're prepared and already doing the right things.

I love it when they coast into the setup! Sounds like you had a great hunt, and congratulations!

Joel

There's always some luck involved.

But hard work usually tips luck in your favor.

Congrats!

Nothing wrong with being lucky

That's right, you can't get lucky if your not out there.

I have killed three longbeards by waking up from a nap at the right time. grin.gif "Two of the four birds that I got this year" blush.gifgrin.gif

NOW, is that luck, being at the right place at the right time, or just being out there.

I like to say if you don't go you won't know.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.

      Funny you say that, Bassthumb.  The slow bite under our house was last week...my dad was up Tuesday and Wednesday this week and he lost count of how many fish they caught.  We've been on a very inconsistent bite this year, though...every time we think about moving the house, we have a day or two of especially good bite before it slows down again.
