Hey all, just checking in! April 29th thru May 3rd area 425 archery. Can't wait! 19,20, and 21st I will be up at Camp Ripley helping in the disabled veterans hunt with my dad. I have never done that before so I am excited to call for them. I will also be taking my 15yr old son out. I am trying to convince him to use his bow but am not having any luck. He still likes the big bang!

Hey guys! I saw this today and got a little more fired up to chase those long beards!!!

My dad and I will be hunting MN Season F May 9-13 in Permit area 243, between Nimrod and Menahga. I believe it is the first time there has been a season in this area, hopefully the birds won't be too call shy! LOL

We are planning on bowhunting, but are brining out shotguns along too, just in case the birds aren't working well. Planning on doing some scouting down there towards the end of April. Looking forward to it!!!

As far as a team name......."Gobbler gurus" or "tominators"......or???

Hi fellas,

I'll be hunting 349G this year, and I'm switching jobs - they wanted me to start the first day of my season but I convinced them to let me start a week later! Pretty excited

I'll vote for The Tominators...unless we want to throw in some David Bowie reference to Major Tom wink

Wishing everybody good luck,

Ben

We just returned from painting the old farmhouse we stay at. Its really in bad shape but the land we hunt is great.The farmers are really glad we went down to help get the place in better shape. I saw 8 Toms today in the two fields we hunt. The birds were in full strut so I think they will be ahead of schedule this year. Hunting with my son for 2 days, he's attends U of Wisc Eau Claire. Season 349C. Our group has a lot of late season times so our challenge is there. Good Luck DrJ.

I've had the calls out for the last couple of weeks. I've about drove my wife nuts calling, so know I've been practicing when she's at work.

I've got my new bow dialed in and plan on going out and patterning the shotgun too.

We're gonna go down to our area the 1st weekend in May for some scouting.

All I have to do is get the pop up camper in working order and re-filled w/ the summer gear.

Oh yeah, I'm PUMPED!!! grin

BMC,

Are you hunting out of a blind with that bow? I have an Escape DX that is pretty large- lots of room in it for a couple of guy's. When practicing for the archrey hunt last year I found that the bottom of my windows were a litle tall for shooting off a stool- I have the hole in the blind to prove it laugh. What really made it tricky was moving the target to 10 yards from the blind. I would suggest that you set things up and see what works and what does not before you get in the woods. The DB Darkhorse and Matrix of the past had the adjustable window- Something to be aware of. If you have to move close to the window to shoot you will probably be spooking birds.

This year - BOOM - I can still shoot a little low and get my bird blush

Good Luck to all

Steve

I have a hole in my blind from last year as well. Mine a turkey could actually walk thru due to my bullhead mishap. Dang that is a big hole. I need to get that thing fixed next week thanks for reminding me!

Sorgy, thanks for the tip! We use the same blind for bowhunting deer in the fall, so no problems there! I can imagine a few gobblers have escaped death by arrows clipping a piece of the blind! LOL

On a side note, I just got off the phone w/ the landowner where my dad and I will be hunting. It sounds like turkeys galore!!! C'mon May 9-13!!!!! We're headed down there May 2nd for a scouting mission.

Brian,

What zone are you hunting? I have not been to my area in 227 yet but it alwas has held birds.

I hope my daughter can make a few days/evenings work in her schedule- she has a job and classes to work her season around crazy Me I just have a job that I will burn some vacation time on winksicksick

RBS- just shoot another test shot a little to the right and left and you should be good to go for the turkey season wink Just make sure that you tape up the tears on the inside so they don't run down to the bottom of the blind..

My blind is not a real option for the bow- that bottom of the window is very high- I suppose I could stand up and shoot that 10 yard shot out the window- It is a lot of movement thou.

Good Luck to all

Steve

We are going to be hunting in area 243, between Nimrod and Menahga. I think it's the first time they've had a season in this area. Hopefully there's a bunch of longbeards running around! The landowner said he saw a flock of about 30 the other day with some strutters in the group. I'm pumped....only a month to go! cry LOL

I made it out Sat 7:00 PM. Saw a nice flock of birds 12 + out in a field and 3 more in the next field over grin

I then walked the public land nearby and there was one pickup already there on site eek I got out and started walking down one of the trails and what do I hear? 2 guys calling nonstop on a diaphram call then talking 20 seconds later eek They walked out the whole way calling and talking frown Free education for the turkeys I guess frownblush

I moseyed back towards my car and met them in the parking lot. They had seen the birds in the field (all jakes).

I turned and went back down the road and moved as quietly as possible to wait out the darkness and hopefully hear flyup and gobbles.

I also ran into a local on the private property my buddy is hunting season A and I am hunting Season E. We had a nice chat and I was able to figure out another area that the birds like to roost on the property ;)Unfortunatly he has not seen a lot of longbeards in the area. We will know shortly wink

Good Luck to all

Steve

      Looking to trade for a Mossberg 510 mini. Ive got B2's or other waterfowl equipment. Possibly a 9.8 merc that needs an impeller. Tell me what you want.

      I dunno @LoonASea, I used to wonder the same thing.  But I have seen several floaters plucked off the water’s surface by eagles before they were completely dead.   I had the same comment about hooking mortality on Mille Lacs; how can they say such things without seeing a bunch of floaters?  Then I started hearing from friends that actually fish the lake that say they see them often since the tight slots have come into effect.     Rush Lake by Rush City had reports of hundreds of dead crappies under the ice by Crane Island.  A deep hole I’ve fished myself and put back lots of crappies I’ve had to close the mouth on to get them to swim back down the hole.  Made me wonder...   What I like about the ND study is it’s actually a study, not just feelings or intuition.  I don’t like the news any more than most with the exception that it lends some reference to an often debated topic.  Some “proof” if you will.  I’ve felt this to be an issue for several years already but didn’t have anything to refer to except my own personal experiences.  So I’ll continue to fish with this information in mind and continue to look for more.

      On Gen 1 build I uses a 720p camera I sealed inside a small flashlight. On Gen 2 I purchased the camera, cable olreadr on a reel with a 1200TVL resolution. From what I can determine it should equal or better than Gen 1. Video of the Gen 1. Gen 2 not complete till after ice out.

      Hello, I am new to this site but came here in hopes someone...anyone can point me in a direction to purchase Minnesota wild rice to plant.  I live in Maine and want to plant some in my farm pond for myself and my ducks.  Any info is greatly appreciated as I am only able to find parched rice on line.   Thank you for any direction you can point me in.  Respectfully, Lora-Jean

      If catching a fish out of water too deep for a safe release and releasing it ,,,,, Why arent the cabin / lakeshore owners complaining about lots of dead fish washing up on shore??? ,,, Do they sink to the bottom ,,,they cant all be eaten by birds

      mbeyer, can't be from this year, can it?
    • JerkinLips
      Colder weather is better for the venison, but the warm days were sure nice for sitting in the stand or in the boat that year.
    • CaptJohnWis
      On a better note, I left the North Arm and headed south. Had fun playing with my new Garmin Live Scope. I probably would not have caught anything today without it. The fish were there but extremely picky. You had to use just the right action to entice a hit. Kinda like ice fishing for stubborn walleyes. Very small lure as well. I caught everything vertical jigging where I could see how the fish were reacting - nothing casting.   Would have weighed in about 18 pounds if I had been in the tournament. Maybe I should enter - then if I see you catch a fish, I can hover right over your spot. Apparently paying an entry fee allows you to disrespect other fishermen.     Rainy2019-9-14.mp4
    • CaptJohnWis
      Idiot loose on Rainy!   Day started out nice and then on my first spot am anchored up for 30 minuters and casting about 50 feet away on a reef. Here comes a big Ranger headed right at me. I figure it must be one of my buddies to come so close but I don't recognize him. Does he stop at 100 feet away? NO. Does he stop 50 feet away - NO. How about 25 feet? again no, He come withing 10 feet and then says," SORRY TO CROWD YOU BUT I AM IN A BASS TOURNAMENTt" !!!?? Then he proceeds to go right where I am casting - I lose it and go ballistic. Why does he think you can hover right over where somebody is casting? IDIOT! Whole lake to fish and he has to start TEN feet from my boat.   I left the North Arm where I had planned to spend the day. Didn't need to run into any more jerks. Went south. Ended up with about an 18 pound bag of 5 bass. See next video for more enjoyable viewing.   https://youtu.be/aGgdkHGLkvM Idiot_tournament_fisherman..mp4
