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

Well, I have been getting ready to start this adventure for the past couple nights. I brought my blind in for some repairs this morning and hope that will hold up. I have permission to hunt a area that I have been hunting for the last 5 or so years. I will get the calls and dekes out tonight after I put my blind back together and get them all ready to go. We leave Tuesday for Camp Ripley to guide for the disabled veterans hunt which I am very excited about. Then the next Wed is when I will be out with the bow.

i saw a big flock of birds just south of the cities on thursday - 1 jake, 2 toms, and 9 hens. The hens flew across the river, and the toms really didn't want to go but eventually followed.

anybody been out? i'm getting anxious and I have a whole month to go!

On the way down to the Twins Game yesterday, with the Itasca County 5th grade D.A.R.E. class, I saw a strutter w/ 3-4 hens in a field on the west side of Hwy 73 between Kettle River and Moose Lake.

I'm busting at the seams to get out there, but May 9th seems like it's an eternity away! cry

I know there are several spots around Moose Lake, Rutledge or Finlayson that there are turkeys around. They sure have worked farther north than I would have thought they could.

      Let me know what you find, we are heading to Borden the following weekend... pending ice road!
    • Xplorer
      Question I have is are you just doing a day trip to the Angle waters to fish, or are you going to stay up there overnight also? I have snowmobiled from Longs Point resort to fish the Starren shoal area south of Garden island, and have gone as far as 4 block/crowduck islands.  Those were day trips, I've never gone all the way up to Angle Inlet.  When we went there we drove thru Sprague, MB and up (fished out of Jakes).   What we really had to watch out for is pressure ridges out on the main sheet.  Some of them took awhile to find a decent place to cross over them.  And obviously its a huge area, GPS/compass/map is needed.   If I remember it was about 22 miles from Long Point to Fourblock, and only about 14 to Garden.  None of this was on a snowmobile trail, all "cross-country".   
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the diligent reports Cookie, I always enjoy reading them and getting an idea of what its really like out there.  Its been awhile since I've made it up and stayed with you.  Hoping to change that next season.  Had plans to head north the weekend after Christmas when that big storm hit but my buddy and I pulled the plug on the idea since we were planning to bring our 6 year old kids along for their first trip.  It was hard to disappoint them (and us) but making the hard decision to stay home was for sure the right call.  It means probably no ice fishing trip up north this year but we'll be back next year.  We'll give you a shout to hopefully get something booked.

      Realize this is an old thread, but wondering if anyone knows of any campgrounds near Tom Lake?  My buddy and I are thinking of taking kayaks instead of a boat for our spring fishing trip, and this lake seems small enough to be conducive to kayaking, while still offering a chance at some decent fishing. I haven't done much research, but everything I've found so far is close to Grand Marais, which seems like a fairly long drive to and from the lake each day.

      Well we made it home from my moms funeral in Iowa late last nite. Fishing report to follow.  Jonny boy and Richie will be busy today as they get out on the lake to make some  decisions on what we can do for the up and coming weekend.   After slamming on blue thunder last week installing a used rear end in blue thunder she lasted all of one day . While plowing out our driveway after a long day before banking un banking plowing moving houses etc she broke a front outer axel shaft. All this snow and slush has put my poor trucks through a work out. Getting stuck then trying to get them out is so much harder on them. I have always babied my fleet as much as possible. This year that is all most if not impossible. We were able to find parts on the way home so hopefully with a little luck we can get her up and running asap.  Some of the outfitters have pulled the plug for this year. Rumors fly on the internet making our winter even tougher? Most of the outfits that live here year long are still open. The wheel houses  have drawn the short straw this year.  Every season is different when it comes to mother nature. It is just the way it is. I have been preaching for 20 years she is the boss . One year the ice froze like a skating rink . I could of ice skated all the way to the north shore, another year the lake cracked all over the place? Another year we had over  3 feet of ice maybe closer to 4. Another year we hauled snow from shore to bank the houses. Another year it was 40 below for 5 days with highs 30 below.  Trying to share how all the house's did last weekend again is kind of  a nightmare. We headed out of town sunday while everyone was staying tell Monday. Sarah and her crew did manage to get 4 over 17 with a total of 15 fish taken home. From what I gathered the fish started to bite sunday? No one got skunked as far as I know. Again the rest of the houses caught some fish but I have no  numbers. Not being able to visit and get to know my customers  has been tough on me. I want to get in a truck right now  so I can go checkout the lake my self. After the little slip a couple weeks ago I keep telling my self I can not help period. I'm still hoping I can atleast do a little fishing in old Minnesota before the season ends. As long as I do not catch one over 10 lbs since that my weight restrictions  of what I can lift. If I do get any fish I will just have to hoist them out of the hole since bending over is tough with this brace on plus the brace is to stop me from bending.  Again sorry about the poor fishing report, its been a long week traveling  to southern Iowa and back.  At this time we are going day by day or week to week as we see what mother nature throws at us.   Again a few tid bits as we all try and make this world a better place.  Laugh more you only live once, laughter is the best medicine.  Be honest its a lot easier to remember the truth then to make things up. Give complements, open doors, lend a helping hand.  Call your parents,  Don't hold grudges. forgive and forget.  Love thy neighbor,  Pay it forward,

      This morning I found a solution. I had an old pair of cross country skis that I haven't used in 25 years. I got some 1" PVC pipe and made a frame and fastened it to the skis similar to the Smitty Sled design. Took about 1-1/2 hours to make it. Tried it out this afternoon and it worked great.
