Welcome Joel,

Which turkey Permit area do you usually hunt in?I'm usually hunting in 344.I can tell by some of your past posts you must have a wealth of knowledge.

Guys:

Thanks for the welcome everyone, I appreciate it. I'm really looking forward to what I can learn from all of you and your experiences this season, and into future seasons. Let me know if there's ever anything I can do to help out!

Adaylate:

Turkeys are birds of great instinct. You guys that "swing" the gun, man, they can smell death in the air as you draw near shocked.gif! My brother couldn't get close for 4 years.....and he's a great wing-shot too. I think they know not to worry about me and my crooked shooting.

I'm hoping that you too can help me out. Maybe after a few posts of yours I can try to take on moving targets again. I'm pretty bad!

Thanks,

Joel

Welcome Joel!

I've been chasing these birds for a while. They sure get under your skin. Glad to see another turkey hunter here. I'm hunting 419D this spring.

I apologize,I didn't mean for you to give away your huntig area.I was just curious if you had experience hunting bluff land turkeys or the scattered woodlands of central Mn.Do you happen to know where the DNR is doing there traping this winter?They have a tendency to do alot of traping in the areas I like to hunt.

No apology needed! I'm more than willing to discuss, just off-post. I'm probably too paranoid, as the permit areas are large and I'm in no real danger of "losing" spots to hunt. Send me an email.

I do know that much trapping goes on in your zone, just not specific locations. I know a few of the graduate students in St. Cloud working on the turkey studies at the utmost northern portion of their range.

I've hunted the wide open areas of KS to the bluffs of the SE. My home range is somewhat in between, with 100-150ft ridges and broad floodplains and valleys. I've tagged along with friends in your hunting zone, and they can be tricky birds! One minute they're way below you on the bottom of the bluff....the next minute, they've given you the slip and they're up top. Not easy. Great country for ridgetop ambushes, and the steep ravines make for good sneaks on mid-hill benches. Absolutely beautiful there though, you're lucky to have a place to hunt there.

Thanks for the post, we'll talk,

Joel

Thanks jnelson...I know where you're coming from. 2 seasons ago I practiced for months in an effort to bag a bird with my bow. I could make my shot count from some of the most contortionistic (word?) positions....then there was 20+ mph winds during our 5 day hunt...it blew, literally...so I opted for the gun.

Last year I sold my house and bought another right before the season so no practice time was available. But this year I'm thinking about toting the bow again.

Tombow and I have had some decent discussion on shot placement and broadhead type. I think he's done more research than myself but I've been frequenting an archery forum I like to peruse to learn more.

I don't know what to believe any more. I am fluent in archery for bear and deer, but turkeys...that's a whole different game. Thought I'd ask someone who us guys could believe...I trust some of these in shop "archery experts" I speak with about as far as I could pitch them and some not that far.

Seems they like to do alot of smoke blowin' when you're in their shops just to sell you gear and use their tactics. The farces are not as evident to me for turkey as I'm none the wiser as to how the gobblers should be archery hunted, but with deer and bear I can tell if a guy knows his bleep from a hole in the ground...if they don't know this, I don't trust them to instruct me how to bag a gobbler with the bow.

Again, welcome aboard and I look forward to some lengthy and amusing discussion!

Buck

Welcome jnelson. We've had some good discussions already regarding gobbler hunting. I think Tombow or myself are going to have to fire up a post on bowhunting gobblers. Do you do any of your turkey hunting with a bow?

Buckblaster:

I would love to hunt them with a bow, but have never had the chance. The past 3 years that I've had intentions of doing so, life has had a way of keeping the shotgun in my hands! Being best man in a wedding....middle of my turkey season, all kinds of things have sprung up that make 1 or 2 day hunts more the norm. It's a real bummer. I brought the bow along to KS last time, but the birds were some of the toughest I've ever hunted, so I opted for the shotgun each time I went out and was rewarded for doing so.

I've been on a few hunts with guys that bowhunt, and have friends that do it quite often. From what I hear, they can take a smokin' hit and take off running.

Please do start some bowhunting for turkey talks. I'd love to listen and learn!

Joel

      I’ve only seen teal one morning on the river.  Absolutely nothing in all the evenings I’ve been out.  Hard to get excited about hunting around home. 😒

      Public Administration in any sphere is a complicated process. In public service, there is a high level of responsibility. Every decision may affect large groups of people. There are many challenging points in Public Administration in public service. For example, public administration servants might face a lack of clarity or conflict regarding goals. Public Administration is difficult when there are numerous parties involved. Public Administration essay in public service should also be as objective as possible. There are voting sessions in various committees that help reach the objectiveness. However, if a suggestion gets 50% of votes among street-level bureaucrats, how should this be interpreted? Is a minor preponderance of votes enough to accept a proposal? The sphere implies a focus on societal needs. Sometimes the needs of the target population differ from the common societal ones. In such cases, public administration specialists need to find a balance between those interests. Bureaucrats at street level need to take into consideration many factors. In some cases, it might be challenging to figure out what to do. It is especially true if the decision regards a long-term perspective. Any public service organization has an established pattern for effective decision-making. Such models might involve many formalities. As a result, the process might be extremely time-consuming. https://proessays.net/essays/category/public-administration Related Resources: https://renkulab.io/gitlab/-/snippets/2871 https://www.ridesharetalks.com/?qa=356716/economics-essay-example https://gitlab.syntra-limburg.be/-/snippets/1240 https://forum.making-stories.com/d/296-government-essay-examples

      The essay for international exams such as SAT, GRE, GMAT, TOEFL and IELTS does not require literary talent, but rather a mastery of the technology of its writing.   Almost any international test for admission to a foreign university contains a section devoted to writing an essay. Is homework market legit? There is a general approach to essay writing for standardized tests, which includes five main steps.   DETERMINING THE TYPE OF ESSAY First, you need to determine what type of essay you are required to write. Standardized tests more often ask you to write a "problem essay," when you need to present an opinion on a given problem, and an "argumentative essay," when you need to analyze the arguments presented against or in defense of a particular point of view.   DETERMINING THE LENGTH OF AN ESSAY The length of the text affects the complexity of the essay, the number of paragraphs. A basic three-paragraph essay consists of 300-500 words. It is referred to as a "short" essay in standardized tests. A "long" essay is a minimum of 500-800 words and consists of five paragraphs.   Each paragraph should contain at least three sentences. It is important to understand that it is not the length of the typed text that is assessed, but the structure and content of the essay.   FORMULATION OF THE MAIN IDEA, THESIS AND ARGUMENTS The main idea is what the essay is about. The thesis is what the author thinks about the main idea of the essay. Arguments are logical statements in support of the author's thesis. Each of these elements should consist of at least one sentence.   If you put these elements in order, you will get an introduction. You can use the wording from the text of the assignment as the main idea.   If the text of the assignment is formulated as a question, in most cases, the thesis should be formulated as an answer to the question posed.   STATEMENT OF THE MAIN BODY OF THE ESSAY In an essay of up to three thousand words, one paragraph each is allocated for the introduction and conclusion. The rest of the essay consists of the main body. For example, in an essay of five paragraphs, the main part should consist of three paragraphs, i.e. one paragraph for each argument.   In a three-paragraph essay, only one paragraph remains to present all three arguments, which makes it even more difficult to write. After a brief outline of the main body, one introductory sentence should be written for each paragraph.     The introductory sentences tell the reader what the paragraph is about. This is followed by arguments that justify the essence of the introductory sentence and examples (a quote or a life case). The introductory sentence, argument, and example together make up one paragraph in the main body.   Since the arguments have already been presented in the introduction, there is no need to use semantic transitions in the main body - all that remains is to set them out in the order in which they are presented in the introduction.   CONCLUSION The conclusion is usually the most difficult part of the essay. The conclusion should include a paraphrase of the thesis in light of what was said in the main body, i.e., an explanation of how the arguments support the thesis put forward, and a final sentence that draws a line under the main idea of the essay.   The clearer and more definite the thesis statement is, the easier it is to write the conclusion. Difficulties in writing the conclusion means that most likely the thesis statement is too unclear. In this case, you can try to rewrite the introduction and then go back to the conclusion.   GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS The main recommendation for writing essays for standardized tests is to quickly sketch out an initial version of the essay. If you run out of time, at least you will have a finished, albeit imperfect, product.   In any case, a finished essay is always graded higher than an unfinished one. If you have some time left, however, you can easily improve the essay with small changes.   Resources: How to write an essay What are essays Essay structure, writing style. What is an essay?

      Several months ago, it was challenging for me to find at least 6 hours to sleep. Students most probably know that feeling: professors just don’t care. But after I found Proessays, things changed. I can entrust completing papers to them and have my life back. At last!

      In a guide to writing sociology papers, the Sociology Writing Group identifies four types of papers that are based on data sources as the most common writing assignments given to undergraduate sociology majors: (1) The textual analysis paper in which the student has to analyze a text like an essay or book. The text provides the data, and the student is not asked to interpret the text. (2) The ethnographic field research paper in which data are generated by observing and interacting with people in their social environment. (3) The quantitative research paper in which data are collected using specific methods of data analysis and collection in order to answer a sociological question. (4) The general research paper in which data are collected through library research to refine a question and gather information to support the paper's thesis.
