Recommended Posts

Like it says, "We're #1 cool "

HSO Team 1

mattrd..................Iowa, April 15-May 19

Hunter....Youth.......Minnesota

DonBo...................Minnesota, April 22-26, Wisconsin, May 1-7

x1957x.................Minnesota, April 22-26

nbadger23.............Minnesota, May 2-6, Wisconsin, May 8-14

Musky HUnter 82.....Minnesota archery season, May 7-30

Let's get this party started:

I'll be hunting Minnesota close to home, here in the metro April 22-26 with my 90 year old Dad. We both shot nice ones last year. This is usually a pretty laid back hunt, just a few hours in the morning before work and maybe an evening or two after work.

Then my buddy Dave and I will be hunting western Wisconsin May 1-7. We take this hunt much more seriously. We've done really well here over the years with some true trophies now and again.

So lets hear it from the rest of you!

Welcome to the show nbadger! Happy to have another Wisconsin hunter on board. Best of luck.

Just waiting on our youth hunter, "Hunter".

Everyone okay with "We're #1 cool" as our name? Kinda hokey I know, but anyone have better idea?

Getting really excited to get out. Weather looks to be clear next Monday, but a lil chilly. Still a lot better than late muzzy season was smile We're getting a lot of rain right now(much needed) hopefully the snow scoots to the north of us, but i guess we'll see. I haven't got a chance to get to the public ground we hunt, but during early January they were every where there. Saw 14 longbeards in one group, hoping to see a couple of those bad boys come Monday! I'll be out there no matter what at this point! One of my hunting buddies did see a couple tom's north of town down here, but it's a small local flock that is pretty nomadic and hard to pin down.

I would bump it back to season C if I could get a different season 2c

But if the birds and sign is there go for it and good luck.

Been out scouting with Hunter and the spots he plans on hunting are holding birds....but not much strutting they've been pretty much feeding in large groups.Leaning towards taking him C season with next weeks forecast.

Guess your best. I'd play the weather if that's an option, but like AS said, if they're there, go for it.

I checked all my local spots yesterday and didn't see one track. frown

Well tomorrow is that day! Heading out in the a.m.! Weather man says windchill of 16degrees & west/nw winds of 20-30mph w/gusts to 30. Hopefully I don't get confused and shoot at a deer while out there since it will feel like November! smile j/k Winds are supposed to calm down for the evening hunt so we'll see how opener goes!!

Well it was a cooold morning. I went with a couple of hunting buddies. They hunted together in one blind and I went to a different field with mine. We got out there and set up well before first light. I was able to find a spot that was protected by the wind fairly decent. Once I got set up in the blind and legal shooting light was at hand I started to do some calling. It didn't take long to get a response in the timber behind me, but that was it. I heard a couple of gobbles and saw nothing. About a 1/2 hour after sunrise I saw a truck pull into one of the parking areas near me. The old fella took his time getting his stuff all ready (20min +) and then proceeded to walk out from the road about 250yds and set up his blind. After about 1/2hr of hunting it was coffee time and back to the truck he went for another 1/2hr. When the coffee was gone out he emerged again taking his time to head back to the blind. It was kind of like watching an old badger or something wondering around. That's public land for ya. After sitting in the blind until around 10:30 my buddies had had enough and we met up at the truck. They didn't hear or see anything, so I guess my morning was better than theirs. Oh ya as we were walking back to the truck the old fella must of gotten hungry because back to the truck he walked. We drove around for a little while and the private ground next to the public ground had some turkey's on it. It looked like a bunch of jakes & 2 toms strutting around. Didn't seem like there were much for hens with them. They're out there just have to keep after it!

      @Skunked Again Billy won’t be happy that I forgot one of the iconic stops on the lake!  Thanks for including Glenwood. 
    • ANYFISH2
      We were out yesterday evening.  It was plenty warm for sure.  Bugs not bad by us.   Isaac saw 2 does 3 fawns and an 8 pt.  He harvested a doe in his first ever sit with the bow. Eli saw a doe and a fawn, passed. I saw watched squirrel's.  
    • ANYFISH2
      Isaac was successful on his first sit ever with a bow.   He has worked hard to be able to hunt with his bow this year.  He kinda shoots better than dad right now. Proud of this little man.

      Yah, she’s a bit much.  We’re forecasted to get gusts to 40 today.  My SIL was out yesterday and said the skeets were horrible.   One friend got a doe in WI last weekend and cooler aged her for a couple days.  He said the meat turned out great.     That’s what I’m getting ready for too.  
    • SkunkedAgain
      Good point about walking into Tower from the East Two. I often forget about that.   You could also go to Glenwood Lodge at the east end of Pine Island. It's mostly beer and pizza with snacks, at least the last time that I was there. As far as I know, what Skibo and I posted are all of the locations on or near the lake.   There are also multiple shore lunch sites on the lake. They all have beautiful views, a picnic table, fire ring, and latrine. Bring your own lunch, or better yet, bring the fixings to cook up your fresh catch from the lake.

      No , my boys deer hunt, but I just waterfowl.
    • going4it
      Terrible wind this weekend for me. Next weekend is forecasted 80s. Not the start I was hoping for 
    • Rick
      I've seen a few fishing the shoreline for walleyes.
    • Wanderer
