Just getting warmed up on the thought process!  I had a video text already this morning from a friend practicing so I know he’s got it on the brain pretty bad.

 

I’ll do some scouting and door knocking today since I’ll be in the area I hunted last year.  I get to pick up my Ripley buck mount and a couple diver ducks from the taxidermist today.  Actually I should probably get out there now!

Just got back fairly quiet this morning with the rain fog combo. Heard a few gobbling on roosts but not to fired up today. Trail cameras are in place have two good areas holding birds.  Once I check cameras and am done scouting will have to sit down and look at all my intel  I've collected and decide where to put my blinds. Seems like a lot of the birds are still hanging around there wintering areas hopeing they start busting up and traveling more soon.

Saw a couple in an area no one can hunt so I bought a new call and tried it out. I called from the road and got the Tom to come within 20 yards.

 

my dads field is being used I did not call there.  Checked a couple other spots with good sign.

The only thing making noise this morning is the rooster pheasant. It’s crazy that the geese cranes ducks and frogs are silent

Had a Tom run by at 35 yards yesterday but never gave me a good shot and with the wind I took the high road.

Nailed a dandy on my farm this past Thursday. First morning out and I was done by 10:00. Had three other tom's talking back to me before I got this one.  10 inch beard on it.

Im in the same boat as Moose. This is the first year of having our own land to hunt. Had a Tom out in the back three days in a row. When it comes time for me to sit, nowhere to be seen. Oh well, pheasant population is booming....

      I just heard (way late) that Louis Watt, of Cook, a Technician at Timbutktu Marine,  was in a bad motorcycle wreck down down in Arizona this winter.    He has a caring bridge and gofund me sites and a facebook page for those who might be interested.     https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/louiewatt https://www.gofundme.com/louis-watt https://www.facebook.com/louie.watt

      I went through it years ago and it pays to have a letter signed by the mother and you may even want to bring birth certificate to play it safe.

      Hi All: I am bringing my son and dad to Aikens Lake in Manitoba this summer. My son (Joe) is 5 and has an active passport, however someone suggested I might need extra documentation for the border crossing since my wife will not be with us and consequently only 1 of Joe's 2 legal guardians will be with him as he crosses the border.   Does anyone know? I looked online some and it sounded like a letter signed by the mother and a witness was suggested but not required. I couldn't tell for sure and wondered if anyone knows or has gone thru it before?  Appreciate any help.    Thanks, Tony

      Water remains dangerously cold, life jackets a necessity Memorial Day weekend signals the start of the summer boating season, but boaters should keep in mind water temperatures remain spring-like. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges boaters to wear life jackets no matter the water temperature or season, but it’s especially important this time of year, when wearing a life jacket is the one action that significantly increases the chances of surviving a fall into cold water.  Though temperatures continue to rise, water temperatures across the state generally are around the 50-degree mark, which is cold enough to cause a gasp reflex and incapacitate even the strongest swimmers in less than one minute. “Cold water affects everyone the same – it reduces your swimming abilities,” said Lisa Dugan, boating safety representative with the DNR. “Even the most experienced swimmers will have trouble within seconds of an unexpected fall into cold water. Wearing a life jacket gives you a fighting chance to get your head above water, stay calm instead of panicking, and call for help before hypothermia sets in.” In Minnesota, more than one-third of boating fatalities occur on cold water, and accident records show the victims are disproportionately male. Of the 14 people involved in boating fatalities in the state last year, all were male. And during the past decade, there’s been a trend that men between the ages of 20 and 60 are the most likely to drown while boating and are the least likely to be wearing a life jacket. “It’s pretty clear that wearing a life jacket could easily prevent a significant percentage of boating deaths,” Dugan said. Before the first launch of the season, anglers are also reminded to review boating regulations, inspect their watercraft and gear, enlist a mechanic to check exhaust systems for potential carbon monoxide leaks, and verify motorboats are equipped with the following: U.S. Coast Guard-approved wearable life jackets for each person onboard (children under 10 must wear a properly fitting life jacket while underway). A throwable flotation device on boats 16 feet or longer. A horn or a whistle. Type B, U.S. Coast Guard-approved fire extinguisher. Navigation lights in working order. Valid boat registration, with numbers visible. Watercraft can be registered in person at any deputy registrar of motor vehicles, at the DNR License Center in St. Paul, or online at mndnr.gov/licenses. Further details, including boater education requirements and information on preventing carbon monoxide poisoning while boating, can be found at mndnr.gov/boatingsafety.
