Who's going Turkey hunting

Recommended Posts

strat-o-caster

Ok guy's who's going hunting and where. Since the first week is only 3weeks away I thought it would be fun to see where and when everyone will be hunting. Maybe catch up with some else hunting the same area and compare note's have lunch or just a beer at the end of the day!! I'll be hunting near Glenwood zone 412 the first week, helping my son get his the 4th week and heading to Wisc latter that week and hunting in Taylor county later in that week.... Strat

Strat:

Great post.

My season starts in SE MN, calling for my uncle and cousin during season B. Then it's off to the Black Hills region for 4 days to try and kill a Merriams. When I come back I'll be hunting with my brother in Goodhue County, season E. Season F I'll be along with some shotgun hunters, calling and trying to get some good video. Seasons G&H I'll be with a few buddies as they try to lure some toms into bow range. I'll be calling videotaping for them if I can swing it.

One of these years I'm going to try and take an Osceola. That way, turkey season can start in March and end in late May.

My season starts with a Black Hills trip over easter weekend with my dad, daughter and a few freinds chasing Merriams. Then I hunt MN with my son for the 419D season. Should be a great spring! laugh.gif

Borch:

Glad to hear you're doing the Hills trip again. I knew you'd fit it in! Hopefully they've had all the snow they can take by now, and the latter half of April will be very spring-like in the Black Hills.

Good luck!

You just never know what you'll run into weatherwise in those hills. laugh.gif We had one spring where it had snowed 30"+ two days before we got there. The second day we were there it was 95 degrees with a foot of snow still on the north slopes and in the valleys. It was really weird weather. Although we worked a lot of birds that trip.

Up until mid-January they had fall like weather most of their winter. Turkeys should come through this winter in great shape.

One of these years I need to apply for a MN tag, but my season starts the last weekend of April in the Black Hills, then May 17th around New Richmond, WI.

I'm hunting season C (April 22-26) in area 346, between Lacrescent and Houston. Now I just need to decide if I am using the bow or gun.

I am heading down to Spencer,In to hunt my buddies uncles farm towards the end of April. 400 acres and plenty of birds with no other hunters around. This year I am going to try and take one with my bow since I got a blind. I might also try the MN bow hunt also if I have time. I forgot to put in for the regular season.

I have no idea where I'm hunting yet, but it is my goal to try to stick one with the bow. I scouted out a few areas I went to last year and found hardly any turkey sign in the fresh snow. I was very disappointed. I'm starting to run out of options and I'm bad at seeking out ne wplaces. I know little about turkeys as it is.

MNPurple...I think that legally you can only use a bow in the last 2 seasons. I'm hoping someone here will know for sure, but I thought archery was only allowed in those last 2 seasons.

Jnelson/Borch: This will be the first time in four year's that I havn't made it out to the Blackhills... "I'm going to miss them there hills this year" but I thought I'd give Wisc another chance and try something new.I like change once in awhile. Although I'm going try the Hills/Neb hunt next year, and try to get one in each state in a 6 day hunt!!!.... Strat

I will start out doing some scouting in Mn. and then head down to Missouri and hunt for a week with my son-in-law. I will be using a new Knight TK-2000 muzzleloader in Missouri for a change of pace. Then back to Mn. and do some filming while my son-in-law hunts. I did not get drawn and may try some archery hunting the late season if fishing is slow.

Powerstroke:

Archery is legal during any season if you put in for the lottery and were selected. However, if you did not put in, or were not selected, you can purchase an over the counter tag for the last two seasons in MN.

Powerstroke,

Don't worry too much about the turkey sign yet. The birds are still flocked up. Once the flocks bust up and the tom distribute some there will likely be birds where there was last spring.

Strat,

My daughter and I just got our liscenses in the mail today. I'm pretty sure the 35" of snow they got out there in the past few days will be gone when I get there. But you never know when some new stuff will fall.

The Scenary out there makes the trip for me. You just can't beat it.

Hey borch I will be in the hills the same weekend as you. Where do you hunt out of? We will be staying in Hill City and hunting from there. I didn't make it last year due to a broken leg but I am excited to get back out there. And then I will be bowhunting the last 2 weeks of the MN season since I did not get drawn.

We're staying in Custer just a stones throw from Hill City. We'll have to get together over a beverage or two. wink.gif

Sounds good to me. I'll look forward to it. Then maybe you can tell me the trick to getting a bird out there. You can shoot me an e-mail at elevatorgod at hotmail.com and figure out when and where. We stay a the Lodestone on the north edge of Hill City.

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.
    • Savage Brewer
      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.
    • Angelfish
      I wamna go fishing this weekend but was troubled by the ice condtions. Do anyone know how much ice are on the following lakes; Osakis, Grand, Arvilla or possibly even Star???

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.
    • Bryan P
      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
