Good luck Cheetah, and don't give up Eric!

Looks like rain for sure Sat, and possibly Sunday as well. As long as it's not lightning I plan to be in the blind though. I have not heard much for gobbling on the property I have access to, during early morning scouting. Hopefully there are a couple of gobblers in the area when I'm hunting. I'm currently packing and can't wait to go hear the spring woods wake up in the morning!!!

Good luck team!

Hey guys, I got one today! Not a huge bird, probably 2 year old Merriam, 7" beard, 11/16" spurs, 15lb weight only.

We put on a lot of miles and got a few birds to respond, only this one would commit though. Also came across a big flock of 20+ birds that were moving through the pines to their roosting area. They wouldn't stop for us though, just kept marching on. Two more tags to fill, have a bunch of birds located for tomorrow morning. smile

Just got back, scored a big boy on Sunday. 25 #'s 10 3/4" beard, 1 1/16" spurs. I have all the paperwork filled out and pictures, I just have to see if I still know my photobucket account info. Yes I agree they were tough, my dad hunted up until this morning,(then we packed up camp and came home) seeing birds but he couldn't get anything to commit. I was lucky on mine. I'll have to post the story with pics. 3 birds down for Team 5!!

Thanks sniper, I got them up on the contest page. Story is short cause it happened fast.

Wind was blowing 15-25 mph, couldn't hear a gobble in the am. I was watching down the edge of the wood line where I thought birds might come from and all of a sudden I hear a fighting pur, I look over and this big boy is towering over my pretty boy decoy. I don't know if he saw me move or if he figured something was wrong and he started to walk away. I grabbed my gun (i was in a blind) and shot him about 25 yards out. My biggest bird ever. Some photos below.

Good luck to the rest of you guys yet to hunt, lets keep them coming! They were definately tough in C season. I hunted with my dad and this was the first time he's never gotten a bird.

Hunt hard but enjoy your time in the woods. It's a beautiful time of year!

Great bird and picks I just scored all the birds submited so far and as a team score with 3 birds we have a score of 164.75. Your bird scores out at 69 even cheetahs was 40.25 and frontenac's bird was 55.5 we are the only team with multiple birds registered and the closest team is #3 with 58.5625 now we can only hope to hold on to the lead it only takes one bird with multiple beards and good hooks to take the lead away.

Thanks, I feel real lucky to get this bird, my dad spent a lot of time in the field the last 5 days and while had sightings nothing with a beard closer than 70 yrds. They were definately tough to get close too for some reason this year.

Good luck to all!

From what you guy's are going through right now I really don't even know how it's going to be on the 14th I have taken them before that late in the season but with this warm weather really don't know what to expect I'm seeing fewer and fewer birds ever day out in the fields but I do have my sights set on two big tom's that were strutting for 5 hours on one of the properties that I hunt yesterday.

Nice bird! Gotta love when they appear out of nowhere, had a few flocks do that to me the last few days, I'm apparently good at looking like a tree/rock standing in the wide open. smile

Went out today to do some filming and help my buddy get his first bird. The wind was brutal today the tom's weren't gobbling but they did come through had hens in and out of the decoys all day got some great video of a tom that came into 3 yards and had a stare down with the jake decoy, he was a adult bird full tail fan and good spurs but must have had beard rought because it was only 2 inches long so he pass we had a bigger one that stayed in the thick stuff and didn't offer a clear shot. Also got some video of a hen that went and nested close by on a fence line. Maybe tomorrow will be his day the winds are suppose to stay down till noon. Also had a rude awakening at 10 this morning I was taking a nap when a gust of wind pulled the stakes on my blind and it flipped over and flipped me over in the chair.

My brother and I just got back from southern MN today. I shot a jake on Saturday morning, and my brother got a nice gobbler today (Sunday). It was tough hunting, nothing would respond to us, just walk away. I'll post the story in the 2010 Turkey Pics thread.

      Try Darren Troseth at 3 rivers fishing adventures.  Fall is sturgeon  time.   He also specializes in catfish with a shot at a trophy.

      No doubt @papadarv!  They’re really good at it too.  The small family flocks have joined together where I’ve been seeing geese and now number 50+ typically.   We saw some geese and a few ducks today but didn’t shoot any.  We didn’t find anything worth setting up on.  Pretty amazing how slim the duck population is up here.  The biggest flock I’ve seen, including the drive up, numbered 5 birds.  It’s been mostly random singles and pairs.   The flooding up here has been amazing too.  Something like 10 inches in 25 hours.  Roads are flooded and the ditches are raging rivers.  The downstream sides of the bigger culverts look like power plant discharges.   We’re considering other options for tomorrow.

      Second flock this morning. They seem to find safe feeding grounds when the guns start popping.

      Chance of lightning....  haha.  When will it stop?!  In about an hour.  Let’s load up.

      Thanks guys! I have a reply from the recommended guide saying he is too busy in fall (apparently he is a teacher and coach etc...)   I think I will stay couple of days in Monticello and fish the Mississippi River. Any recommendations on spots and accommodations? Also do I need to hire a car?
    • Wanderer
      Just settling in for a 4 hour nap before launching the boat on LOW - provided we’re not in the middle of a T-storm.  South winds so that helps.  Rain doesn’t bother me but the chance of lightning does.   Good luck tomorrow.
