I'm hunting SoDak April 8-10 and then April 10-15 in Nebraska. Might still buy a surplus tag for season F in MN for 442 or do archery in 222.

Every place I'm hunting I'm going in blind, but I can't wait.

Dhost, where abouts are you hunting 601? Are you hunting with a group?

Im hunting on a few different public land areas in the metro and maybe one privite land area with the bow in the metro I have been seeing sign but the one area is flooded pretty good so we will see. I will be heading out every morning the week prior listen for the birds and then pick then which spot i want. My brother will be hunting the weekend but we arent sure if we are gonna team up or what yet we have to see how much traffic these public land places get so im not sure whether i will be in a group or just me. Most likely me on weekdays at least... now as for a name... I like the cluck stops here or maybe Gobblers Gone Wild or Peeping Toms or something lol im bad at this name stuff

Well if you're interested in some company I'd be happy to tag along and help call or whatever.

It does sound like I'm making a turkey tour doesn't it? I sure hope it works out. I've never hunted out of state before, so being able to hit a couple states in a large loop should be pretty fun.

Scouted my 3 spots yesterday and have turkeys on all of them 2 of them didn't have birds on sunday so the bigger flocks are starting to break up and it's starting to look good for season A. I do think that B or C will have better luck though unless it really warms up fast.

I like it!!! Now I have to make it another week till I start hunting.

I've spent every day this week perfecting my archery ensemble, including practicing from my chair and inside the blind. That also includes watching several hunting videos. I can't wait!!!! Now to start packing up the camper.

The truck is the gas hog and it has to come no matter what, might as well drag the camper and sleep in a nice bed with heat, coffee maker, microwave etc. Campsites cost the same no matter what I sleep in so I'm bringing my camper.

Got a bird picked out tonight, 20+ Lbs and around a 10" beard watched him strut in the cow pasture for 20 minutes till he flew up to roost.

There's something to be said about a comfortable bed and heat. I wish we would've had one opening weekend! And I agree, we paid $10/night just to pitch the tent.

That's the best one you could pick out 'sniper? I target those big breasted butterballs that sleep under the evergreens since they're too fat to fly up to roost. You need to crank up your bow to around 80lbs to kill one. grin

I spent another hour shooting from inside the blind tonight. The guy I'm hunting with in SoDak said they saw "hundreds of birds" last weekend and they were still very flocked up. He took 3 shots using the Magnus Bullheads but no kill. He said two ended up being body shots with no damage and one other guy got his bird. I can't wait to get out there.

I will be shooting Rage's so I hope I get as many opportunities.

Located 2 more groups tonight and roosted another, more strutters on my properties they really have done their spring migration in the last week and are now back to where I chased them last spring. 7 more days till I have the bow in hand. Was shooting out of my blind last night to get back in the groove also fine tuning it and was shooting extreamly well out to 70 yards.

Also pick up 180 acres by the rum in cambridge loaded with turkey tracks heading down there in the morning to listen for were their roosting.

      I would love to see more restrictions on all species but they have to include a protected slot.  There are so many success stories it should be obvious by now.  It seems to work better when a mid-range length is protected or all fish over a certain length go back.  I have heard concerns that restriction will reduce interest including from out of state (economic impact), but with better fishing I doubt that is the case.  I think what helps with this is allowing 1 trophy over a certain size in your limit.  As for the stunted theory...as a kid I fished a lake where I could limit out on 8" crappies any time but never caught one over 9".  We were told to keep as many as possible so we could thin them out.  A 9" minimum was put on the lake.  And like magic when I went back and fished as an adult almost all the crappies were just under 9", but I caught a limit between 9-12 inches.  I remain somewhat skeptical of the stunted fish theory...not that it does not exist, but it is an overused excuse.  Just reducing the limit does not help...you need to add the slot with it.  Or just use the slot, which is somewhat self-limiting in what you can keep.  For some, reducing the number you can keep is a psychological boost...they can say we limited out!  With the new northern regulations, I have already seen the impact in increasing size...all fish from 22-26 go back and now I am seeing those small northerns get some bulk (it is not because they are stunted and people are keeping all the northerns under 22" to thin them).  I don't think that "educating" people is effective; if you care, you already know.  It needs to be legislated.

      A canoe requires a “J” stroke (to compensate for paddling on one side) whereas a kayak has a balanced left and right stroke that better aids in tracking and balance. Canoe paddles are heavy. Kayak paddles are ergonomic and light! Source: https://canoesurfer.net/buying-canoe-vs-kayak AND What is the difference between canoeing and kayaking?

      You might not find much opposition on forums cuz the people that use them are learners.  This is our life and we’ve paid attention to what goes on out on the water/ice.  We’ve had our times when we’ve realized what our own actions have meant and make efforts to be better sportsmen and conservationists.  If all of us here kept every legal fish we catch up to our limit, we’d be WAY over on possession - who can eat that much fish?  We don’t view a freezer full of fillets as food security, we view a lake full of swimming fillets as food security and fun security.  Making a smaller withdrawal from the lake here and there is better than living on a couple jackpots per year when one really lands on em.   That statement might sound arrogant but I believe it to be true.

      Smurf, when I was out there the highest concentration of pike effort was happening near the Bible camp on the northeast part of the lake.  Couldn’t tell ya how they were doing though.
    • Paul Waldowski
      I have not seen or heard much on folks chasing Pike.  Everyone has been concentrating on Crappies and a few Tullies
    • HoleHoppingGills
      My thought and by the way I'm a huge gill and crappies guy. Id like to see all MN lakes with a regulation that 9 or 9. 5 inch go back ASAP on crappie!!. Been seeing a lot of.lakes destroyed by fishermen taking limits of small fish. Use to fish a small.lake near Tonka few times a year and always did well on quality panfish... I went there few years later like I always did in the spring off a dock to catch spawning crappies. Lake has no access,  anyways some guys were fishing and had there kids to obviously use them for fish limits, Watched this guy pull in a 5 inch crappie, turns around lifts up a metal basket out of the water. This basket maxed out and completely full.of 5 to 7 inch crappies.  About 6 in the party kept EVERYTHING. Tried it few times that winter which I normally did back then.... no fish population at all.  Just my thoughts sorry so long lol
    • HoleHoppingGills
      Member only ...looking for some reports near Wright county area or even west and north of there.  Been fishing this small lake out near South Haven and been crushing 9.5 inch gills  and 12 inch crappies the last 2 months.  Went back last week after take a 2 week break and everything was suspended and tiny. Before everything was just off weeds deep and coming from botto....not sure what happened  but fish were loaded like a xmas on the flx28, maybe oxygen levels? First pic of the crappies took me and friend 1 hour and 20 holes... so much fun!!!!

      Jasopete, Thanks so much for the information!  One more thing I just thought of---is there any cell service in this rather remote location?  I'll be sure to check back in here and let you know how we did.

      Zucker gone & Big Bad Bruce, shoot,,,adios amigo. 😳 Our professional hockey organization is truly Wild!    Hopefully there's an interesting & entertaining playoff run. Good thing half the NHL makes the post season. Late spring hockey games that really matter totally rock. Let's Go Wild!!!
