Hunting turkeys with a dog or dog's?

Recommended Posts

Shack

Is this legal or am I a turkey my self for thinking of such a thing. I never have hunted turkey's yet, but I have encountered them in the woods. When they get spooked, there very stealthy things on getting away in thick cover. Maybe you could hunt them like coons. They are just like any other game bird. You corner them and they flush. As a matter of fact, I think they are the only bird you never hear people hunting with dogs.

Anyone know why it would be illegal? I do not plan on furthering post any further as I do not want spark anything.

Usually when Ken states good luck, it feel it may mean good luck with post and further replies. Turkey hunting is a big topic on the forum right now and I am not tring to upset anyone. Has this topic been brought up before?

It acctually is legal in some states, only for fall hunting, they use them to bust up the flocks then call them back and the dogs lay next to the hunters in a little blind....

But in MN it is illegal.

Turkeys are managed as big game rather than the upland game classification. Many of those same game laws that protect deer protect turkeys.

For additional background on why I'd encourage you to email the good folks at the MN DNR. They have always replied to my questions in a respectful prompt manner.

This is a strange subject. I have been out running the dog in the fall and seen a turkey or two. Once we were walking an area dnr land and came across a turkey. The dogs moved in, pointed and the turkey held. I walked in to flush what I thought was going to be a pheasant. Woosh the darn thing took to flight. It scared the heck out of me. It only flew about 15 yrds then landed, because it had an arrow sticking threw its body. It was early fall(out conditioning the dogs for SD opener) and I figure it was a deer archery hunter as fall turkeys was not open yet.

I don't think hunting them with dogs would work very well. The only reason that one held was because that poacher had shot him, and he still had an arrow in him. Most others I see while out with the dogs are hightailing it before we start into the field.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
