These seminars will start at 7pm, and run approximately one hour. Topics will include, but are not limited to: wild turkey biology, calling, hunting tactics, breeding phase periods, shotgun/archery strategies, and other Minnesota-specific turkey hunting information.

Joel will be available before and after the seminar for any questions you might have. See you there!

I'll be attending smile.gif

There will be a few folks from our local NWTF chapter, as well as a few guys I've talked to from the forums.

I'll have a few hunting DVDs there for giveaway, and I think you'll find the seminar helpful. See you there!

I attended the seminar on Friday and Joel does a great job covering everything a hunter needs to know. I hope others take the time to attend the advanced one. I ensure even the best turkey hunter will take a little something home. I know I did.

Just to let everyone know I do see that Joel has one on Apr 6th but it says that it is "advanced Tactics". I was looking for more of a beginners course for dummies like me smile.gif

If willing to drive to Cannon Falls, feel free to attend the DNR Turkey Clinic I'll be putting on. This will be more for beginning hunters, and includes some take-home information you can look at and have at your disposal. Cost is $5 for this one.

Let me know if you want more information, and thanks,

Joel

Thanks to all of you who attending the first seminar! Your DVD's are in the mail as of this morning.

Please look into attending the Advanced clinic where I'll be addressing these topics, as well as answering whatever questions you might have:

-Sit and Wait vs. Run and Gun - the Hybrid approach?

-Advanced Calling

-Hung up Gobblers

-Advanced scouting

I also plan on having several topics that I'll cover a few of, pending the interest and vote of the folks in attendance.

My hope is that some veteran turkey hunters attend this clinic, and help make it more of an open forum for some advanced turkey hunting discussion.

Again, I plan on giving away some hunting DVD's to those in attendance.

See you April 6th!

Joel

Joel, could you tell me what topics were covered in the 1st one?

Dave:

We covered:

-Turkey Biology/Behavior

-Basic Calling

-Weapon of choice - preparation

-Hunting strategies

-A day in the woods

There were several questions that got a bit more advanced, esp. those regarding topics on pressured birds, roosting, etc.

I plan on going over these topics again, as well as gauging the audience to see which topics are the most important to them.

Again, I urge you to attend the DNR clinic this Saturday morning for a much more exhaustive beginners course. I will be spending 3 hours, rather than 1, covering quite a bit of information on spring turkey hunting.

Thanks,

Joel

The last of the Gander Turkey Seminars is tonight at 7pm, hope to see you there!

In this seminar, I'll be discussing some more advanced topics, specifically:

-Subtle Calling - Tips and strategies

-Adv. Scouting

-Hung-up Gobblers

-Tuning your hunting to the breeding phase

I'll also try and solicit some scenarios from hunters in the group, and we'll try to discuss some tactics for particularly bad birds. Show up tonight and we'll all talk some turkey!

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).

      Thanks for the share Fitz! I noticed you guys had a couple of nice ones on saturdays event, i was curious how thatcame about. Congratulations on the crazy weekend!

      I have an STP frog cutter so I make my own.  
    • Surface Tension
      The torque tab counters the pull caused by the rotation of the prop.   Trimming the outboard in or out(up & down) can make a pull show up or go away.   Your Merc uses an allen wrench or a socket and extension to reach the bolt to loosen the torque tab.  Merc uses a right hand rotation.  If the bow wants to turn right by itself you would move the torque tab towards to the center.
    • ANYFISH2
      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️
    • slammer
      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.
    • ANYFISH2
      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!
