Crazy times

Recommended Posts

monstermoose78

With all the craziness going on. I need turkey season to focus my mind on something. I need to shoot the crossbow soon and get the gear sprayed for ticks. I thought about getting a lay down hen but do I really need another turkey decoy?

 

 The turkeys are using the corn field on the neighbors land but I will cut them suckers off. I cleared a spot last year so I can shoot behind my blind. 

 

let’s get some good turkey talk going on in here!! Come on guys.

 

Note from Editor: We have a Turkey contest going on HSO. You can win a "Legends of the Outdoors

Hall of Fame Boxcall."

I am just hoping right now that a license agent will be open when I decide to by a license.  Still trying to decide between taking the bow or shotgun.  This Covid thing is complicating my decision making.

The son is chomping at the bit to get out, I hope that continues when the season actually starts.

The two I did put an arrow in were really fun. On the first one two Toms came in a and  stood right right by my decoy. The second one didn’t come close since he was following a couple hens. So I got out of my blind and stalked him. Got to a good cover spot and fortunately the hens started coming my way. 😁

I'm wondering that if the Governor declares a "shelter in place" order will we even be allowed to go turkey hunting?  Technically turkey hunting is not "essential."

 

On the decoy subject, I have found that sometimes NO decoys work better when hunting pressured birds too.  Calling too much can be a hindrance too.

yup, i've had no decoys work, lots of decoys work, but the think i lean towards more and more is fewer decoys and less calling. Especially on pressured ground. After a few weekends the birds have seen decoys and heard it all. So the less the better. Or course we are talking turkeys, so the next day you can go nuts and still have it work. 

I'm hoping things don't get to crazy. I'll have to stop by my favorite turkey spot on some essential trip. or take a big roll of TP into the words, walking out with the excuse of...well it was essential I go into the woods. Us crazy turkey maniacs will find some way to pull it off. Just no sharing blinds i guess.

Now I tend to lean to the cautious side, but come on Bigfatbert! (Sorry if that was sarcasm) I understand it is not essential, when turkey hunting I need not come in contact with anyone or anything that I could infect or be infected by!  I get in my vehicle, walk into the woods, I shoot a turkey, walk back to truck, drive home, register online, take pics, dress the bird, then come on here and tell you all about the beautiful day outside and the hunt.  

 

I refuse to be trapped inside these 4 walls, being outside in the sun and fresh air is far better for you than being in the stagnant air inside.  

 

Continued health to all and God bless.

Enjoy your hunt if you must  , but do ya think that’s how all others day or days will play out . By chance have you seen the chart that explains what happens when just one person infects just one other person , It’s not a start to a good scenario whatsoever..Let’s all make a sacrifice and get through this then we can all turkey hunt next year , giving up one season ain’t gonna kill ya anyfish.

I completely respect your stance, I truly do.

 

If I am allowed to hunt I will.  I will also take all necessary precautions to protect myself and others like I should.  It is the responsibility of all of us to do our part to avoid situations that endanger others.  

I have a cousin in Colorado that is currently fighting off Covid-19.  I know of her struggles and the difficulty of this virus.  I can not be a prisoner of fear, I can however live everyday with respect for others while still enjoying the precious gift of life I have been given. 

 

I have witnessed to much death in the last year to curl up and fear the challenges of life. 

I watched my hero fight cancer and take her last breath, while being the strongest and most fearless person in the room.  

 

I apologize for this, this is a Turkey thread not a thread for Brian's philosophy.

 

Again I understand and respect your opinion.  Good night.

If this is the new normal as has been stated many times, are we going to be expected to shelter in place from January to June every time new virus pops up?

 

There is inherent risk to live.  I will chose to live until my time is up.  
 

Without getting into this further here, you can rest assured I understand what the current world conditions are and how we impact one other.  We can be safe and still live.

What a complex subject...ethics.

 

Every day 100 people die in car accidents in the US.  Do we shelter from cars?  There is no way the world economy can withstand a no risk environment.   Somehow we have accepted risk profiles from what has developed over time, but are having trouble with evaluating new risks.  I am not questioning the world response to the current virus but for sure coming out of this there needs to be some serious analysis on what is socially and economically acceptable (this will support PhD theses for years to come).  In the UK approval of a new drug requires a calculation of the value of the drug.  In that calculation, they actually put a value on a human life; seems like a very cold approach but that is one example of what may be to come.

I think "outdoor recreation" including turkey hunting, fishing, etc will be permitted should the governor declares a shelter in place order.  Michigan just enacted one yesterday and the governor there was very specific about what can and cannot be done during their order, as long as social distancing guidelines are followed.  Turkey hunting solo mission in the woods  where absolutely no interaction between people takes place seems perfectly safe and allowable to me.  Buying live bait and coming into contact with someone to pay for it before you go fishing would certainly be against the rules, but there are ways around that - use artificial lures instead.  If I load up my boat, go to the access, launch my boat, fish for a few hours, and then come back home without interacting with anyone other than the dog, I have followed the rules.  If I have to buy gas for the boat or truck, I'll pay at the pump.

Just saw a news update from MN Chamber of Commerce that our governor is looking to get insight from mathematical models to predict the outcome of different approaches to restrictions.  Smart if we have good models for this; no idea if this is the case.

Been seeing them come through my yard for about a month or more.  Pretty much all hens and their broods from last year.  Saw a nice tom while I was checking my creek for wood ducks and my neighbor has had them strutting around his feeder regularly.

I was able to acquire permission at 4 locations on private land to hunt this spring.  Three of them I have had permission in the past so I expected to receive it again.  The new spot looks promising.  I like to have contingency locations in the event that the first spot isn't producing or the birds have wised up.

 

Some might wonder how I'm able to get permission on private land to hunt.  I'll tell you.  I scout, knock on doors, and ask for permission.  I've been doing this for turkeys, pheasants, and ducks for almost 20 years.  Over the years I've accumulated good spots and landowners often let you come back once they give you permission the first time.  For all of you complaining that public land is crowded and pressured with other hunters: quit complaining.  Time, effort, and persistence will work.  It has for me, and it can for you.

Been scouting and walking my 3 private pieces I hunt and have been seeing quite a few birds. Seems like as others are stating that the winter flocks are starting to break up.  Have a few nice Toms on all of them. One piece has over 40 birds still fairly grouped up hope they bust apart  soon.  Food sources are keys to location right now if your farmers hauled any fresh manure out in the fields wont take long and they will be there watch for them.

Great advise Gimrius been doing it for years and have gained access to some prime real estate. The best thing is I have formed some great friendships relationships with these landowners. Offering some help on there farms properties giving them a meal of fish venison etc or a gift card goes a long ways in sealing permission for years to come. What better scouting camera is there than the real eyes of the person that watches uses his property everyday. Hands on up to date info!

 

What I would recommend is right now its probably not the best time to go knocking on doors until things settle down some Many farmers are from a older generation and likely wouldn't want to have a stranger coming up to them asking for permission at this time. If you can get  phone number a call might be better option and would possibly yield better results. Sad because first impressions are huge but in this time of uncertainty a different approach would be a more sensible option.

We may find out soon what is store for our season.

 

Sound like it is likely a "shelter in place" will be ordered by the governor today.  We will see what we can and can't do?

      Starting to go through my Turkey vest and started practicing some of my turkey calling again. Yes Ill admit I'm no Will Primos 😂 In fact far from that but I can strike up a cord or two with the turkeys 😉 As far as calls go Ill start with some of the ones I personally use. 
       
      LOCATOR CALLS - I use 3 different ones a Owl hoot, crow, pheasant cackle for location or pinnign down the location of a TOM. Shock gobbles work also but be very carefull it can draw hunters on public land so watch your backside. 
       
      BOX- One of the easiest to use a great call for beginners. Easy to make some of the basic sounds on it. In fact probably the most common call in peoples Turkey vests. Tip use a box call rubber band or make sure call is secured or when walking through woods call will make some unwanted noises. 
       
      Diaphragm calls-Probably one of the best but also the hardest. Takes some practice and is not for everyone. Some people will have a serious gag reflex when attempting to use one. Positive you can make quick putts purrs, clucks etc with one. Probably the best call to master and best for a ground hunter without  blind. Takes away all hand movements when you got a Tom in close. 
       
      Friction Calls- My Favorites I've been using friction calls for years. For Very windy days I use a Crystal top to strike out there cut through wind very loud birds can hear it from long ways off. For reaching up over a ridge distance on a more calm day you cant beat glass kind of a medium range call.  Slate is the one I use when right in the woods calm days and have birds close by a very soft more subtle call that produces great results with birds in closer distances and face to face. 
       
      Call conditioners- You will want to add a stone, sand paper, chalk to keep all your calls in good working condition. A high pitch unwanted  squeal will send a Tom running in no time! 
       
      Decoys- Big fan of Flextone have a feeding and resting hen and a Jake. Plus I have a Primos B-MOBILE when I have a  aggressive dominate I'm after. At last resort and I have shot couple using a mojo scoot-and-shoot . This is a true rush if you haven't tried it! 👍
       
      Blinds- Been using Ameristep doghouses for years, Setup 4 of them on my private property's in strategic locations but if all else fails have a vest and seat and will get right up in there faces if I have to.
       
      Just throwing out some of the tools of the trade that have helped me be very successful in Harvesting some nice Toms over the years.

      It looks like MN is considering getting rid of the shotgun zones. 
       
      https://www.duluthnewstribune.com/sports/outdoors/4994139-Shotgun-zone-elimination-bill-gains-traction-in-Minnesota
       
      I used to hunt in a shotgun zone but now hunt in the big woods with a rifle. The thing that always confused me with the shotgun only zone was that you could hunt with a rifle caliber pistol. I know Iowa, Illinois, Michigan, and others have started allowing straight wall rifle cartridges instead of just shotguns.

      With the warmer weather, I'm starting to think spring.  And that means turkey hunting.  New rules for this year too.  No lottery required except for a couple of wildlife management areas.  So you can basically pick a season and buy it over the counter.  Also, the permit is good statewide as you do not have to hunt in a specific zone.
       
      I kinda figured the lottery might eventually go away.  Its been slowly reduced over the years and was only down to A & B for lottery the last few.  What this could is add a lot of hunting pressure during a specific time period, however.  If we see that some upcoming weather looks really good that might bring more hunters to purchase that specific season.

      Well, my annual trip was only an extended weekend this year, as I had to use my actual vacation to go to Florida for a wedding. 
       
      Drove up Friday morning after work, and was able to hit Two Island Lake for a few hours in the evening. As soon as we boated to my secret spot, a storm cloud moved over and the wind was insane! Temps dropped, and I only caught a few smallies.
       
      on Saturday we went to Greenwood Lake. Even though we caught about 50 bass, it was still a slow day. Weather was perfect. Bugs were horrible! My dad caught a nice lake trout. My daughter caught her first northern pike, and I also caught one. Fished this lake for 30 years and never even seen a pike, now they’re taking over!
       
      Fished Hungry Jack on the final day. Weather was once again perfect! Only caught a few bass. My son absolutely loves fishing off the resort’s dock. So the kids had a blast catching sunnies (including my daughter’s first). 
       
      Was a bummer we only got to stay up there a few days. My dad stayed until today, but I haven’t heard how he did. Didn’t see any moose. Was also the first time I’ve been up there and did not catch a trout. We got our fill of Sven & Ole’s and world’s best donuts. We might try to go back up next month.

      I usually fish mille lacs about 3-4 times a year, usually in the spring before it gets hot out there.  I do not stay there, as I live within 90 miles of the lake.  I sometimes stop for breakfast or lunch but that won't happen if I decide to go this season.  I will probably still go and make a half day out of it at some point.  I exclusively use artificial lures so I don't need to stop for bait and if I need to stop for gas I will pay at the pump.   I think there will be less people fishing it because they have encouraged people to fish "locally" (whatever this means is different to everyone).  Lodging options will definitely be more limited and bars/restaurants/resorts may not be operating as they normally would.   As for the fishing out there and the regs...can't say I agree that winter anglers are able to keep fish and soft water anglers can't keep anything AND have a month long closure, but it is what it is.  The walleye, smallmouth, pike, and muskie fishing is still fantastic and there is state record trophy caliber potential for bass and muskies right now.

      I was thinking April 20th for ice out but with the cooler night time temps next week I'm thinking April 27th now. The ice is starting to pull away from the shoreline which is a good sign.

      They knew this could be a problem at the Rainy River for the early walleye/sturgeon season so they shut her down before it even started.  Last week at Oconto, WI (Green Bay) there were WAY too many people from out of state (MN, IL) and across the state of Wisconsin there fishing so they shut that area down too.  People can't be driving across the state to do this like they normally would, and they can't pack their boats with 4 or 5 people either.  Go by yourself or with maybe one other person you have already been around and stay close to your house.  Keep your distance at the landing like Bob said otherwise it will only take a few abusers to ruin it for the rest of us.
