The Tom turkeys are not playing well the hens are around and have come into the decoys. No Toms to be seen or heard. Lots of ticks today.

Welcome back Fishandfowl!

Congratulations on your bird.

It seems like it has been a tough year for many.

Hope you can stick around and share your adventures with us some more.

Isn't that something how they don't recognize the blind as a problem?  I've had turkeys walk literally right next to it too.  Nice bird FishandFowl, hope you didn't pulverize it too bad.

Thanks guy's. Good to be back. Sometimes life just keeps you busy.

Didn't pulverize it just not ideal connection. Nothing a little Hickory smoke and some Cajun Spices won't cure. Here is a pair a friend of mine and I got a few years back. Lucky day to score 2 Toms in the same morning!

Heading out tomorrow for some Walleye's hoping it goes well.

 

Thanks,

Greg

I am done turkey hunting for the season and no turkey to show. It’s ok I learned a lot and will be clearing a spot in the brush so I can shoot on both sides of the blind. It was a fun season and had Toms close enough but on the wrong side of the blind.

Its not easy.  Turkey hunting success rate in MN is only about 20-25% so for every bird harvested, there's 3 or more tags that go unfilled.  And that percentage goes down even more if you're archery hunting.

      Everything I’ve ever heard is that it’s their best store...

      That does look good, hard to beat the price and convenience. I looked into these a couple years ago but ended up finding a fairly local guy who does great work for good prices. He's doing my second Euro now

      Yeah, I just tell myself, I only have these few years to really enjoy the kids things.  It will fly by I am sure, then I will miss it.   Over the First 3 weekends of Muzzy season Isaac has 12 games, Friday thru Sunday.  Time would be thin.   Muzzy season has always been a hit and miss season for me.  Usually dont need any more meat, and no really established properties to hunt.  Public is the usual.

      I found 4" along the shore of a small shallow lake...so tempting!  Anyone else finding anything fishable?

      How about a digital photo frame in the shack.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...
