Got this Jake this Morning as a result of a spot and stalk effort between my wife and I. They weren't responding to calls, so we had to resort to other options!

Curiosity killed the cat, and this gobbler. He and four other strutters where pushing about twenty hens around a field but he couldn't help himself to try and gather up one more.

He ended up being 25.5 lbs with a 10" beard and only one good spur as the other was busted off.

I have been very fortunate to have a good friend in southern MN that is all about turkeys, he does 100% of the leg work from lining up land permission to pre season scouting and he is always dead on. I think it's a very fair trade as I do the leg work for bear season in the fall as we both have our regions and expertise. I have only taken two turkeys in my life and this years' bird was the small one. The first year I did everything wrong I could for several days and still ended up with a mongo bird. Now this year was it for me as no more calling instructions or help as I have been weaned off. Year three I’m on my own…guessing me without the help will change my success rate. laugh

Nice work! I only had the mornings of this weekend and it was horrible for me. Seems the strong winds kept the birds in the valley. Big bummer, normally I listen to about a dozen birds at first light and down one shortly after. Just wasn't my year. Back to fishing!

MN Metro bird 6:30 this morning. 22 lbs., 10" beard. Sharp 3/4 - 7/8" spurs. I didn't have much time to invest in this hunt and with the weather moving in, I couldn't be happier to take this bird. A friend was doing some pretty professional filming. Hopefully he'll have a nice sequence on utube one of these days.

      Just got Home from there my self. Great show some pretty good deals going on. Was really intrigued by Bass Khang Rods purchased one of his custom walleye rods. Had a great time reconnecting with some old buds in the ice fishing industry.

      I would like to hit big water for divers a time or two yet

      Getting to the end of the line here in a hurry.  What a bummer of a close out from central going north.  I know a few people who crushed em here and there but most have experienced a mediocre season overall.   Anyone still out, and on birds?  There should still be some good fields going on.   I just popped the latest wood duck I think I’ve ever seen.  A young bird too so I can’t give it credit for being a Wiley old timer resisting the flight through the gauntlet.

      Great expo, lots of great new product, not as crowded as weekends, quick and easy to talk with vendors and some decent prices.
    • Rick G
      Oddly enough.... I know that spot.  Have done really well in the fall, fishing the saddle between the two pieces of structure😉
    • Getanet
      Cool. If you wind up going with either, or both, be sure to report back on how the accommodations were (and the fishing but that's usually not in their control).
    • CigarGuy
      Bassbouncer....Not to change the subject, neighbor and I checked out your ice house you're selling. Looks nice. Ron L is my neighbor, talk him into buying it🙂. Btw, do you know how much it weighs? What do you pull it with out on the lake?

      I've got a trip scheduled to Sunset Lodge on the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods in January.  We signed up to fish MN one day for walleyes and on the Ontario side one day for crappies.  This is a trip we've done for the past two years.  The walleye fishing has been so-so but the crappie fishing has been very good in the past.  I just noticed that Sunset's website no longer mentions the MN/Ontario combo package that was there when I made the reservation in October, so I called Sunset to see what was going on.  Samantha, the manager, is not there now since the resort is shut down between seasons, and the person I talked with was vague.  The explanation varied between "crappie fishing has not been that good in the past" to "we're not sure what Ontario is doing."  She assured me that Sam would get back to me in the next couple weeks and I shouldn't worry about it, but since I organized the trip on the premise of the walleye/crappie combo I'd like to know what is going on.  Is anyone aware of any changes for this ice fishing season regarding non-residents fishing in Ontario?  Is this a remote border crossing issue?  Or is this just a resort decision?
    • stjoeguy
      Thank you for all the recommendations.  I'm now looking into Red Lake Remote and Kabetogama Outdoors.
