If I get a permit that is.. This spring, me and my dad will be going on our first Turkey hunt. We plan on doing plenty of research over the winter. Hopefully some scouting in the area we are going to hunt as well..

Stay tuned, as the winter progresses, the talk will start to heat up around here. There's quite a few guys on this board that know what they're doing, and going into your first season there's alot to learn. That's not a bad thing either, as I think that learning/figuring-out alot of this on your own is more than half the fun of the entire experience!

In reading the regs. So if my and my Dad are planning on our first time hunting Turkey. Would you recommend applying for a group application, or individual(s)

If the plan is to both hunt you should apply as a group. Either you pass together or you fail and then you can get surplus tags.

If you don't mind hunting together but maybe only one of you gets drawn, then apply seperate. If one fails you can still hunt together, only the licensed hunter can shoot though.

Dumb question. If you apply as a group, each person gets a tag, correct?

Also, how do these "surplus tags" work? Who gets them, or is it zone specific?

Yeah if you apply as a group you both either get a tag or don't.

I'm not sure on the surplus tags but, I think how they work is you can look on the DNR website after tags have been drawn , and if there is an area with extra unfilled tags you can buy one over the counter and you won't lose your preference point for next year.

Any tags that are not applied for go on sale for hunters who were not drawn. I'm not 100% sure, but I think surplus tags can only be bought by people who applied but were not drawn. The DNR sets a date when they go onsale and provides a list of where and how many are available.

That is correct. You can purchase a surplus in any zone or time period which is still availble. It's first come first serve so be there early if you do get drawn.

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
