Hey Guys! Please check-in, say hi, & let us know when/where you'll be hunting this spring!

I'll be hunting in Nebraska April 10-13 & the MN archery season in May. Going to give it a go with the recurve this spring - hopefully the new decoy brings them in tight!

If you've got a suggestion for a team name, please post it!

I think you'll be safe by then... hopefully! I'm actually happy to be hunting in May in MN this year.

We're just waiting for Just1fish... and we'll all be accounted for. We're starting at a disadvantage w/ only 5 of us while some teams have 6 so we'll have to bring our A game this spring!

Well guys, I was fortunate to score some nice hooks for the Hook Hunter's, but unfortunately I forgot to pack my scale! It got a little warm one day and we had to get our birds cleaned & on ice. So I won't be able to register him in the contest. But I plan on getting an archery tag for MN and will do my best to help the team out in May! Good luck guys on your upcoming hunts!

Hey guys! Pike here, i am hunting 1st season right now around zumbrota-mazeppa area. Was out this morning and got close but couldn't seal the deal on a nice tom, it was out at 75 yards. Tonight i am going to a different property and will have a better chance. The birds are just too into their winter groove still on the morning property. Have around 15-20 gobblers on tonights property so that should make it easier to call a few in to the decoys. As long as the rain holds off it should be game over for a bird tonight!

laker1, there isn't much gobbling on most of my properties around zumbrota but on some of them there is definitely more activity then the others, this morning there was some gobbling with the 2 toms that were roosted nearby our setup.

Stick, i hope i can get one tonight but this a really good property. i wanted to hunt close to home this am because i had to get to school early. So i chose a place a mile from my house. This property is my main property that i will be on tonight and i have been extensively scouting it for a while now. The birds are really active on it and have been gobbling and strutting around for a couple weeks already.

Make sure to take lots of good pics and enter them in the photo contest! If there's a bunch, examine them with the binocs and make sure to pick one out with some long hooks! grin

Haha (aka did i get one) no not last night or this morning for that matter. Unfortunately there was a guy trespassing unintentionally right where i wanted to set up last night. It wasn't a huge deal as i talked to the land owner with him and he felt bad that he was about 250 yards onto the wrong property. He was an older gentleman, and was very sorry about it so it wasn't a major problem. Tonight i will be going out to that spot so hopefully my luck will turn around.

Well boys i ended up getting one today at 315pm. So here is the story....

It started out wed. morning, i was hunting with a couple buddies whom were filming for me. We had one come in to about 75 yards behind us. We were looking to get some good footage so we didn't put a stalk on it also we didn't want to bump many birds around. Wednesday night through Friday around noon it was snowing or raining so hunting was slow or non-existant. Friday night i roosted a flock of 3 gobblers with 8 hens, it was going to be very nice saturday morning so i was excited. On saturday morning when i arrived the birds were not there which was frustrating, they also didn't make any noise as it was 25-29 degrees until about 9am so that dampered any possible success. Saturday night i had 4 hens at 8 yards from my blind but no gobblers showed. Had to go to church with my family at 8am today so i couldn't go out this am which was also frustrating. So at 245 i headed out to my blind and i was ready to do whatever it was going to take to put a bird on the ground. As i was about 50 yards from my blind i let out a series of yelps which triggered a gobble only 100 yards away. I quickly got into my blind and called a few more times and the gobbles got closer and closer, eventually the bird came out from the woods and was 55 yards away from me in the bean field. I shut up and the bird started strutting and kept getting closer. When the bird hit 25 yards i hit to loud yelps and he put his head up....He was aquainted with my #5 load.

Ended up being 22lbs, with 9.5" beard, and 7/8" spurs

      From where it is, I would guess ATT if anything.     https://www.att.com/maps/wireless-coverage.html (zoom in and enter zip code for that area.  Cook is 55723 so that's a start.  Looks like ATT has coverage.  Tmobile roams on ATT.

      Heard browns fight but nothing like steelhead. took probably 20 min to get mine in. 
    • bigpunfun
      I've personally spent years catching crappie with minnows.  Usually I will drop a dead stick with a minnow and jig another line with a waxie. Have similar luck on each rod. Always depends on what the fish want of course. I like to give them the most options.

      Always dreamed of getting out and exploring other great lakes. Got to fish Lake Superior a few times out of Duluth and it changes my ice fishing life!
    • bigpunfun
      Heading to the Virginia Mn area Ice fishing in a few weeks. I've fished the Duluth area most of my life but finally spreading out a bit.  Not hoping to get anyones "spot". How are ice conditions? Anywhere to stay away from safety wise? Any dead lakes that would be a waste of my time on a limited trip? Thanks yall
    • Borch
      Always looks like a blast with those jawjackers or auto fisherman.  Fighting those big Browns and steelhead on a short rod through a hole in the ice on light line would be fun.
