Father -son hunt

Recommended Posts

Hey, guys:

This will be the first season my 8yr old son and I are going to turkey hunt. We both have our tags. Since he is only eight yrs old, we will begin right on Season "A". The local conservation officer told me I will have to leave my bow at home until Season "D" since I didn't apply for the lottery. We will be hunting in NE Meeker County where there isn't as much pressure early on. My question is; is there any good hunting left by the end of April? Are the birds extremely wary by then? I am decent at calling with my box call and we have a new blind, a Primos "Club". I'm just hoping the month of May will be similar to April hunting. Any input?

Turkeys will still be plenty active that time of year. It's often better hunting later, after the hens start to set on nests. Go get 'em. Good luck to you both.

It can be awesome then. My favorite time to hunt. Midmorning on is usually best that time of spring.

Sorry I'm confused?

Isn't season "A" a lottery season? How would you get a season "A" tag if you didn't put in for the lottery? confused

Youth tags are good for the entire season. No need to apply.

My son has been looking forward to bow hunting turkeys since he was five. We purchased a Bear Apprentice III for him since it's fully adjustable. He's good to 20 yds, so we're hoping for the best!

You are going to bring his shotgun along as well right? Just in case he gets a little "Turkey fever". Good to have a back up.

My buddy brought his kid on his first hunt at 12 years old and when he had a bird in front of him the first time. He couldn't shoot it! frown

      PJ Fleck was an undersized, over-achiever with a big motor. I think that he looks for the guys with the same qualities because they can relate.

      Yup, it looks like my ATV is staying home until later this winter when everything settles down and I can get it back across the ice! Thanks for the reports everyone. You're making me wish for better lake access (and a snowmobile!).   Stay safe

      There also should be local leagues or groups to join up with.

      I forgot to post my ice report from last Sunday for Linwood lake. There was 15" everywhere I drilled. Trucks beginning to drive finally including my F150. Happy fishing!

      From what I know, the State Trail crosses past the Arnesen area SW over past 12 Mile Reef near the Manitoba border, then NW up toward the Angle, then East toward Garden, then north up into the Angle waters.  It is somewhat of an out of the way route and like Leech indicated, about tracked SxS on that trail.  Going cross county is possible using the Arnesen trackvan trail up 16 Mile Reef, then x-cross country to the NE.  Another possible route is to cross the border at Warroad by driving a car/truck up there.

      Five of us fished Fri and only three on Saturday due to the weather.  It was another tough breezy couple of days.  SE wind on Fri and NW on Saturday.  Our bite was slow, however I did carry the group on Fri.  They contributed 4 of these fish.  My bucket was full.  The others fished close by, less than 20 yards away in all directions.  Fish for dinner!!!   Saturday was a different story for me.  I was skunked and not keeping eyes under 15 nor sauger under 14.  My two guests that day ended up with 6 or so.

      Thanks for the feedback so far. I didn't know about the continuous draw on the Vantage. I'm going to the boat show this weekend and will talk to the MinnKota staff about that. I plan on fishing big water as I do now but am smart about avoiding big waves. My current boat is a1999 Lund 1700 Angler SS. It has served me well and the new boat will allow me to handle bigger waves with the same level of security. Keep the feedback coming

      It ain't pretty. Not seeing anyone on the lakes. Snow on my roof was almost hip deep so I shoveled it off. Finished it off with a swan dive (unintended) face down. So deep I could hardly walk out of the back yard.
