2020 turkey regs

Recommended Posts

Barbelboy

I know it's the middle of winter, but i got turkeys on the brain. The DNR page says they new regs aren't out yet, but a careful look at the zone map shows some of the new rules. Looks like no season A & B lottery and everybody can hunt statewide.  Only Mille Lacs, Carlos and Whitewater are lottery.

I got Turkeys on the brain all year been watching my winter flock for a while already. Figured they would implement a non lottery pretty soon way to many surplus tags left always for A and B. Hunters always are afraid to throw in considering the weather patterns can vary so much. Lottery or not B season for me been doing it since Mn opened the season. Always find success some years tougher than others but usally pretty good.

Yah, especially if you’re still able to get on the winter flocks before they completely break up and disperse to other properties.  We get them working through our yard for stretches of days at a time but then other stretches of days you can’t see one for trying.


Sometimes they just share some breakfast with me.

I love hunting turkeys with my crossbow and will always do so. Tough buggers they are, but so rewarding to bag one.

It will be interesting to see the early season dynamics over the next few year. Might be a lot of hunters buying early season tags, might not. They may wait to buy their tag until last minute depending on weather. But the utilization of a firearm statewide in all zones through your season is an interesting twist. One of the main reasons i hunt with a bow is the ability to hunt statewide all season. But if i can sit in some of my favorite spots throughout a 7 day season with a firearm it would make run and gun a bit more palatable. As well as the last redemption season would give me almost 18 days of hunting if wanted. I'll be curious to see the final regs.

I figured the lottery system would go away eventually.  I didn't think it would happen this soon though.  I intend to hunt the same "zone" I normally hunt but now I might just wait until I see a good week of weather, buy that license, and go for a few days.  The downside to this is that there might be more hunting pressure during a specific time frame.  Turkeys are tough to hunt, and they become even tougher when pressured.

      Got out the last 2 afternoons and did ok, couple nice panfish iced with some good buds. Fun Times! Plenty of vehicles driving around but I'm still full on sledding everywhere for fun. We were able to fish through Saturdays gale with ease using the flip overs and using a good amount of snow for banking.

      Time to eat a bit of crow. Del is most likely correct on android cell phone GPS after 2017. My Galaxy J 2017 build has the Glonass/GPS chip set, same 3 meter accurcy as my tablet. If you desire to know the type and accurcy of your android phone, install the GPSTest app from Play Store. It will show you what satellites your receiving and accuracy of your GPS. I don't have an iPhone so don't have info on iPhone Gps.

      Could be, I know it was a scout camp.

      I said above that’s the lake that smurfy said had a Boy Scout camp , but the more I thought about it it might have been a Girl Scout camp , I’m going back 35 or so years on my recollection. .

      Tried big pine today. Plowed out north access. Got onto ice and snow was flowing nicely had speed then started loosing speed and the slush started coming over my plow. Backed up got hung up maybe 150 yards out. Hour half later I finally got myself free. Crossed a 3 inch wide crack and it was shooting up like a geyser. I was wet and cold from hip down. About 14 inches of slush. Got off the ice and called it a day.

      I fished it once as a child probably 20 years ago and only picked up a few smallies fishing for walleye. It's ridiculously clear. I'm sure it has walleye in it but I definitely didn't catch any
