Well what a way to break into Minnesota turkey hunting, I got my first double beard! 

 

I scouted my butt off on some public land and found a lot of birds. It took about an hour after flydown and this guy came home. 

 

I smoked one breast on a weber kettle with hickory. The other was made into schitzel. The legs and thighs (STOP WASTING THESE) were braised and used to make a massive pot of soup. Heart and liver were used for a classic liver and onions dish. 

 

Way to go on the double beard!....Scouting pays off

 

I like the way you cook up the bird....been chirping to other hunters to pluck wild birds, use legs/thighs, hearts, liver etc. Posted a link below that I use for legs/thighs....can try it on your next bird!

 I've used that recipe on canada goose legs and it was awesome! 

 

I started to pluck this one but I got a bit too aggressive and ripped off too much skin to be able to roast it so I got the knife out and got everything I wanted.

Awesome way for goose as well I bet.....not sure how close you follow his work but his duck, duck, goose and buck, buck, moose cook books are the best out there for wild game. He is currently working on a small game book to follow the track

Nice job! Glad you were able to connect on one! And on public land too! Glad the scouting paid off I was just up there the week before shed hunting with my niece didn't find one! She still had fun though I showed her a rub and after that she found 4 more I didn't even see must be because she is eye level with them!

 

Anyway hope you have as good luck deer hunting there as well!

Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.

I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat. 

 

In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

Awesome bird,as far as plucking goes I take my big cooler and fill it with hot water then add 2 or 3 gallonsof boiling water. Throw the bird in and close the lid for a minute or two to scauld it and the feather almost fall out.

My wife makes a mean pot pie out of the leg/thigh meat.  Used to throw that stuff away, but man there's a lot of meat there. Never again.

      Hey I was curious to see if there were any active fishing clubs near whitebear lake or forest lake 
    • Dave S
      I think the largest was maybe 10". Didn't notice any tullibee cruising through but it's very possible.  Just surprised that if they were there, that we didn't get any.   There was a small walleye that came top side as well.

      Well before light. Try to be on  ice fishing  before daybreak normally. Early bird gets the worm has always been my philosophy. 😉 Nothing better IMO than  watching the sun rise a ,hot cup of coffee and fish on my vex its like a dream I never want to end 😀 I will  fish in midday afternoon if Im on a more relaxed schedule. We can make anything work. 
    • IceHawk
      Well done Dave ! Get any 13 inch Plus? Hook any tullies or see any in that area ?
    • IceHawk
      Smurfy that N end is always busy in winter very productive area easy access. Been like that for over 30 plus years that I've fished it. Pretty consistent bite in the N bay every year unless they go on a freshwater shrimp kick then they can be tough to entice at times 😲 A bunch of untapped water on that S end but a few guys venture out there and find fish. Town bay area is generally a good spot as Millers bay.

      Me too. once he moves a house over that 60' hole! 😄

      Well I went out tonight for a short amount of time before dark. I had my son(2.5) and wife along so didn't have a lot of time to scout or fish. There were only two other permanents on the lake that I could see from the public landing. There was a plowed road and 4 trucks in the parking lot. We set up in 14' of water but never marked anything. I'll head back another time. Thanks for the tip Rick!

      Passed you up workin those docks today, figured I'd throw a chatter bait around the pads down that shoreline ...... Purple was good today 😉

      We started in the area I mentioned to you this morning but the small perch were relentless and saw nothing else there. We made a move again and couldn't believe my eyes. 60 FOW and suspended  20 feet up. They didn't just cover the water column between 40-50 feet. THEY SMOTHERED IT. As you can see from the pic, we had a Garmin Live Scope with us. Holy Cow is all I can say. It helped us mobilize and follow the fish but the lure choice and color selection was critical. It sure started getting busy out there by the time we left 😆.
