Season "E"

Recommended Posts

Saw557

I disn't draw a turkey permit for the season I wanted but I was able to get a "E" season surplus tag.....better than not going at all...I hope. I've always hunted the "B" season what can I expect for the "E" season as far as the mood of the birds and chances of actually having a good hunt.

Thanks

Scott

Actually the "E" season is one of my favorites. You'll do fine.

I'll echo Borch's comments, as it is too, one of my favorites.

Season "E" in MN tends to fall smack dab at the beginning of the secondary peak in gobbling activity. Hens are moving off to sit on nests while lonesome gobblers are still very interested in breeding. Net result is usually more gobbling than a week or two previously, and some willing toms without hens.

The MN season however is set "back" 5 days later, so our calendar just switched up a bit. You should still find some active birds willing to check you out, esp. on private land that has not been hunted yet.

Good luck!

Joel

I have killed all my MN gobblers on the backside days of E so I think the push back is not a bid deal.

Weather is the largest factor. "D" has been unfortunate the past few years with stuck "low" pressure systems and days of cool rain.

I like thunderstorms rolling through the night before, but prefer mild weather in the morning hunt.

"E" is great for hunters willing take vacation to hunt MN gobblers - 4 weekdays. This year the final day (Saturday) falls on opening fishing.

Last season I hunted E, buddy tagged out 5 mins into the season, that bird was a little hungry if you know what I mean....

I heard lots of birds in the morning, but they all seemed henned up, but then again I'm cursed and haven't got one yet in 6 years.

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
