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.

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.

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.

      The Department of Natural Resources invites visitors to Mille Lacs Kathio State Park to join members of the Minnesota Archaeological Society on Sept. 28 for Archaeology Day. Attendees will learn about the region’s 9,000 years of human history, and how this contributed to the designation of the park as a National Historic Landmark. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the park picnic area. “Demonstrations, activities and displays will advance everyone’s knowledge of the park and Minnesota history, no matter what their age,” said Kris Erickson, park manager. “The park’s beautiful fall colors will offer an added perk.” During the day, visitors can: Watch how “flint knapping” transforms a piece of stone into a tool. See the way prehistoric pottery was created. Observe an excavation where artifacts were discovered. Examine a spear, and watch a spear-throwing demonstration. Learn to shoot an arrow with instructors from the Archery in the Park program. Minnesota Archaeological Society publications as well as books and pamphlets from the Minnesota Historical Society, Maritime Heritage Minnesota, St. Cloud State University and other sources will be available. Archeology films will run continuously in the Interpretive Center. The DNR is sponsoring the event, along with the Minnesota Archaeological Society and St. Cloud State University. There is no charge for Archaeology Day activities. A vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks. Vehicle permits may be purchased at the park office. The cost of a daily permit is $7. An annual permit, which allows entry into all state parks for one year from the date of purchase, is $35. Mille Lacs Kathio State Park is located 8 miles north of Onamia, and 14 miles south of Garrison on U.S. Highway 169. For more information, call the park at 320-532-3523.

      Minnesotans interested in helping the Department of Natural Resources determine how Game and Fish Fund dollars are spent now have through Friday, Oct. 11, to apply to serve on a review committee.  Minnesota’s Game and Fish Fund is the fiscal foundation for many of the state’s core natural resource management functions. Upwards of $110 million is deposited into this fund annually. The DNR needs at least 12 people to serve on the fisheries oversight and wildlife oversight committees (a minimum of 6 for each committee). About half of the current members’ terms expire on Saturday, Dec. 14. Appointees will be responsible for reviewing the agency’s annual Game and Fish Fund report in detail. People who want to serve should have a strong interest in natural resource management, how it is funded, financial review and working together. The goal is for the committee to have members from across the state with diverse perspectives and backgrounds. DNR Commissioner Sarah Strommen will appoint committee members for two-year terms. Applications are available on the DNR website, along with more information about the fund, expenditure reports and oversight committee reports. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Counties collect Payment in Lieu of Taxes for state-owned land not subject to property tax Minnesota’s 87 counties are the beneficiaries of $35.9 million in state payments that help support public lands.  The state’s Department of Revenue recently distributed annual payments for Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT), a property tax relief program that offsets tax revenues not collected on public lands. Counties have received PILT payments annually since 1979 in place of property taxes on 5.6 million acres of state-managed lands and 2.8 million acres of county-managed tax-forfeited lands. Money for the payments comes from the state’s general fund. Every county in Minnesota has public lands within its borders and receives an annual PILT payment. In July, counties received anywhere from $21,443 in Red Lake County up to $3,792,842 in St. Louis County. “PILT is an important and consistent revenue source for counties, but the benefits of public lands for Minnesotans go far beyond these annual payments,” said Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Sarah Strommen. “Public lands support local economies through timber and mineral production, provide space for outdoor recreation and tourism, create habitat for wildlife, and help provide clean air and water.” The state makes PILT payments on public lands including state parks and forests, scientific and natural areas and wildlife management areas, school trust lands, Consolidated-Conservation lands as well as county-managed tax-forfeited lands. Even lands that could never be developed and placed on the tax rolls are included in PILT calculations used to compensate counties. Payment rates vary according to land type and range from $2 per acre, to three-quarters of 1 percent of appraised value. Payment for Lake Vermilion Soudan Underground Mine State Park is assessed at 1.5 percent of the appraised value of the land. A breakdown of PILT payments for each county is posted on the Minnesota Department of Revenue website. More information about Minnesota’s public land portfolio, PILT payments, and a brief history of major public land transactions is available on the DNR’s public lands page.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is reminding lake property owners to carefully check boats and trailers, docks and lifts, and all other water-related equipment for invasive species when removing equipment for seasonal storage.  This is important, as several new zebra mussel confirmations in recent years were initially reported by people removing docks, boats and boat lifts. “These late summer/early fall confirmations are the result of Minnesotans being more vigilant and checking for invasive species when taking equipment out of the water,” said DNR Invasive Species Unit supervisor Heidi Wolf. It’s especially important to follow Minnesota’s law and keep docks and boat lifts out of the water for at least 21 days before putting them into another body of water. This state law is central to the training DNR-permitted lake service provider businesses receive. Anyone transporting a dock or lift from the adjacent shoreline property to another location for storage or repair may need a permit, to help prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. The DNR recommends these steps for lake property owners: Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Hire DNR-permitted lake service provider businesses to install or remove boats, docks, lifts and other water-related equipment. These businesses have attended training on Minnesota’s aquatic invasive species laws and many have experience identifying and removing invasive species. Contact your area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if you think you have discovered an invasive species that has not already been confirmed in your lake. More information is available on the aquatic invasive species page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Watching the sun rise over a marsh is an awe-inspiring experience, a memory bank deposit that for many duck hunters is as valuable as the number of birds they bag. Yet, every year some duck hunters find themselves in bad situations, the result of falls into cold water, mishaps with their firearms, or other incidents that may forever cloud what’s supposed to be an enjoyable experience.  As Minnesota’s waterfowl hunting season gets underway Saturday, Sept. 21, Department of Natural Resources conservation officers remind hunters to ensure their hunting and safety gear is in good condition before heading afield. Once they’re hunting, adhering to the key tenets of safe firearms handling is the best way to reduce the risk they’ll be involved in what could be a life-changing incident. “Safe hunts are successful hunts, but they don’t just happen on their own,” said Jon Paurus, DNR Enforcement Division education program coordinator. “It’s up to hunters to put themselves in safe situations.” For those who use boats during their hunt, that means thinking of themselves as boaters. Wearing a life jacket is the best way to avoid drowning. Colder water this time of year increases the likelihood of cold water shock and hypothermia. Duck hunters should tell someone else where they’re going and when they plan to return, and have a communication device such as a cell phone or radio along with them. Overloaded boats also are susceptible to capsizing or swamping, so it’s important to pack only the gear that’s necessary and distribute it as evenly as possible. Each year, duck hunters also are involved in firearms-related incidents that lead to injury or death. The three most common factors are careless handling, not knowing the safe zone of fire and not being sure of what’s beyond the target. By following the four tenets of safe firearms handling, hunters can avoid most firearms and hunting-related incidents: Treat each firearm as if it is loaded. Always control the muzzle of the firearm. Be sure of the target and what’s beyond. Keep finger off the trigger and outside the trigger guard until ready to shoot. ### Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
