Turkey Gun Sight in

Recommended Posts

mnmuzzleloader

I just thought I would put this out there for everyone to think about. We should have a get together in march or early april, I have 40 acres just east of Jordan that we could have a FM get together and sight our guns in and stuff like that. I know last year powerstroke came over and we shot some turkey guns and the breeze. I think we could all benefit from something like that. We could each bring a box or two of turkey loads and pass the shells to try out different loads and such to get the best out of our guns and save some money by not having to buy more than 2 boxes to see what our guns shoot best. I know the first weekend of april is out for me the the 5-6th

We've kicked this around in years past, but have never had such a generous offer. I'd be interested.

I'll look into it a bit more. mnmuzzleloader, shoot me an email if you get a chance.

Thanks!

I wonder if anyone has a 3-D archery turkey target. Thats the only thing I'm going to be patterning this year.

It was a very generous offer last year and it worked out great. If we could get some folks together to hang out and talk about turkeys it would be fun. I could probably help with setup. We could build a couple pattern boards.

Would you mind starting mid-late morning?

sounds awesome the morning will work for me, what time are you thinking powerstroke? 10 or something like that. if you are going to kato after it will take you around an hour to get there depending on where you are going... you guys can make the call, I will have some stands to put target on and I have a ton of large paper 22*34 so we have plenty of that I will see if I can burn off some turkey heads at work and then i can have them as well. if anyone else wants to come, just bring choice of turkey stopping weapon and some rubber boots farms are muddy this time of year.

2pm in Mankato? I'm doing a turkey clinic at Scheels in Mankato at 2pm on the 29th. Is that what you're going to? grin.gif

I'm 99% sure that the clinic we are going to is at Scheels. I highly doubt that there are two different clinics in Kato on the same day.

It will be nice to meet you.

Lance, I still have a huge pad of those turkey heads that I shot at last year. I will bring those and donate them to the cause. There's easily over 200 sheets there. You can get some big paper for finding pattern shape that will be great.

My sister and I will come and my friend and his bro-in-law are going to come too. We're gonna be sharing a bunch of 20ga loads for the 2 kids.

Powerstroke,

are you familiar with Mankato? There's been a few changes the past couple years.

I can give you directions for an easier route to get to the Scheels store if you want.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
    • Borch
      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!
    • ozzie
      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.
