Teamers.........

How long has everyone been after the king of the spring??

I killed my first gobbler in 1983 here in Idaho. Since then chased them in MS,LA,TX,MO,NM,MT,WA,OR......if you are just getting started beware the barbed hook of this sport!

Let's pick a name and get after them. I'll hunt Idaho (2 possible birds) and Oregon.

Our youth season starts April 8 & we adults start April 15-May 25. All over the counter general tags. Best of luck to everyone.

Just looked at leftover tags for WI and there is a bunch left for the last season in my zone so I'll be picking one up.

Experience wise I haven't hunted as much as wallydog but my first bird was around '96. Since then I've tallied up 16 with 13 of them being mature toms, two hens, and a fall bird that had grown a 7" beard since his stub bearded jake days earlier in the year.

The first season I have this year will probably allow me to hunt for myself on Wed then focus on getting my buds two boys birds. If they fill up then I can try filling my tag - always the possibility of a double in there as well. Ideally I'll have a bird by the second day of May and be looking to upgrade in three weeks, although that last season I'll only be able to hunt Sat and Sun.

Someone can step up and pick a team name, anything is fine.

Strut Stoppers

Boss Gobblers

Gobble Getters

This will be my third year going after them. I have yet to get one in my attempts. Any advise on getting one would be greatly appreciated. I like the names Strut Stoppers and Gooble Getters.

Im not sure yet if my grandpa is sitting with me again this year or if im going after them by myself. I will be hunting in area 443, not sure what season yet though.

What is the pressure like where you'll be hunting? If its public or lots of people will be hunting it I'd go for an earlier season. If not I to hunt at the very beginning of May - usually the underbrush has enough leaves to give you some cover. Its tough to move in close, sometimes to move at all, early in the season with so little cover.

Other than that once you figure out when you'll be hunting the best thing is to spend as much time out scouting as you can, and the closer to your season the better.

I'd be all for Gobble Getters, I think Strut Stoppers gets used about every year.

He's from Duluth and he usually makes a trip out to the Black Hills. Met him one year out there. He'll check in I'm sure.

Hey Team 1 it is elevatorguy finally checking in and I got some bad news. I won't be able to compete with you guys this year. My wife went in on March 16 with some complications to her pregnancy. And on March 22nd our daughter was born at 25 weeks. She has been quite the fighter at weighing in at only 12 ounces at birth. So my turkey hunting this year has been put on hold. Our little girl is in the NICU at St. Marys here in Duluth. And it will be quite awhile that she has to be here. But all in all she is doing remarkable as she is the smallest baby weight wise they have ever seen. So good luck everbody and knock down some turkeys for me!

And if anyone is interested in her story we do have a caring bridge website for her and the link is

Sorry to hear the bad news but its great to hear she's doing well. My cousin had a premature that was very small - they sent a pic and her little fist fit inside his wedding ring. She's about 2 now and bouncing around like nothing ever happened. Best wishes to you and the family. You take care of them and we'll worry about the turkeys!

My thoughts exactly. Some things are more important than even turkey hunting.

      Impressive! 
    • poliwhirl18
      That is fantastic! 
    • Kettle
      I grew up in the Bethel area so I fished the river a lot. Best walleye fishing north of princeton and best smallmouth fishing I've had was south of St Francis. One can catch them from Mille lacs to the Mississippi river 
    • FishinCT
      We fished Thursday-Sunday as well. Didn't do fantastic but ate fish all 3 mornings and all 4 of us went home with a limit. Kept 8 on Thursday and Saturday and 7 on Friday. I didn't fish Sunday morning but they picked up a few more then too. Size was very good. Most of our keepers were 15-19 inch fish. Got a 23 and a super fat 26" for slot fish. The 26 had to be an 8 pound fish-never seen one that fat on vermilion. Also ran into a 37" northern and a couple nice bass and perch. Thursday and Friday was exclusively an afternoon bite for us. All keepers came after 2:30pm. Saturday they bit all day. Lots of skinned minnows from short bites, probably 3:1 missed to caught ratio.    We did most of our damage in 26-30 feet off the edges of reefs in big bay and Frazer. Tried to drift or troll around 0.5-0.7mph. Usually like to go slower but wind made it tough at times. A longer leader on the lindy seemed to be the key. About 5 feet long compared to the usual 3. Couple of the guys threw a spinner on and that was the ticket at times as well. Not fast enough to spin but I think the fish were really hugging the bottom and maybe a little flash or stirring the mud up got them to go. Also found light biters but the larger the minnow the harder the hit. Ystore was out of pike suckers Saturday so we got light northern instead and the walleyes were smacking those hard.     All in all another successful trip. Somehow the October weather cooperated!

      Trout/Wabana were really nice lakes, the one and only time I got to fish them 2 years ago. Would love to make it back up there some day. Too many places, too little time!
    • Rick
      Thank you for the report.
    • Wanderer
      I’ve never just canoed the river so I guess I can’t really debate that time estimate.  It’s always been a float/fish trip but casting only, not stopping to really work a deeper hole or anything.   I used to live on the river along that stretch.  About midway between Isanti and St. Francis.
    • Kettle
      Cambridge to St Francis is definitely a long float, Isanti to St Francis not fishing just canoeing takes me about 5-6 hours. If your going solo check out the central park in Andover. You can float solo for about 3 hours and you end up within a 5 minute walk of your vehicle since it twists and turns so much in that stretch. I have not caught many walleye that far south but definitely will get a bass or two 
    • Tominator692
      My soft water season ended Saturday. Landed the boat and need to give it some TLC. I fished everyday in October and boated 304 walleye. Primarily fished my 5 favorite fall spots. Strictly used a jig/minnow.  Lots of nice stuff with a fair amount of smaller fish. To be clear I am a catch and release guy. I probably kept 8 fish. This is a picture of a nice one from my last day out..
    • Wanderer
      We got one gadwall yesterday.  Today duck motivation is low.  Clear sky and zero wind right now.  Going back to bed for a couple hours and then off looking for roosters or grouse.  Whatever works.
