First time on this site. I’m from Prior Lake Mn, I am looking for private property to Turkey hunt on this coming April, will travel up to 1 hour away. I don’t know anyone in the area and with this Covid-19 happening this is why I’m reaching out otherwise I would be knocking on doors. I am 57 yrs old, responsible, law abiding. Please if you possibly have any leads PM me. Thank you for your time and good hunting.
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."
Let's hear your turkey talk and see your pics here 1st, then......

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.
The North Dakota Natural Resources Conservation Trust has a Super North Dakota 2020 Unlimited Whitetail Deer Tag we are raffling --good for any open season, any open unit. Hunters can hunt from September through early January, bow, rifle or muzzleloader. Hunter must use legal weapon for each season. We are a non-profit, The North Dakota Natural Resource Conservation Trust. We are using this tag to promote conservation in the State of North Dakota. Tickets can be bought at
Drawing will be held August 3rd 2020 at 10 am at Lincoln Oakes Nursery, Bismarck North Dakota need not be present to win.
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.

Guy down the bay is nice but a bit odd.
I mean he is still looken for the lefty monkey wrench we asked him for in 1996.
Few years ago he told me to come see his sign he made for a concert he was heading to.
So couple days later I was passing an he showed me the sign.
It read "I LOVE YOU STEVIE!"
SO I ask, what concert ya going to ~ Thinking it was
maybe Fleetwood Mack n Stevie Nicks...?
Nope he said I am Stevie Wonder guy!!!
I think of this moment a lot....Big Smiles!
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.
In 70’z. Drive up liquor stores were just a dream.

Always been googly eyed over the Judge! Nice! I had a Trans Am, a buddy had ‘68 Firebird with a built big block wedged in there. Buddy’s BIL had a parade of cool cars in those days; Camaros, Road Runner, 442, and a big ‘ol Coronet 500 with a 440 he painted up real pretty.
And the reel that wound the line on backward, but sweet!
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.
