First MN Bird--222E

6 posts in this topic

Hunted Nebraska for years with good luck. Moved up here a few years ago and thought I would chase one this spring. Only had 2 days to hunt. yesterday nothing much happened. Today the toms were going nuts. Had a group of about 15-18 birds walk right up on me in the double-bull. Coolest thing I have had seen while tom Chasing.

Anyway. I got lucky the big boy came out in the lead. He stopped and boom. One shot, baby. ( yea I did not use the bow, I ony had the one day left)

The rest of the birds stood around and mourned him for awhile and then scattered. Not a pellet in the breast. ( thats a first)

I used the MN landowner list to set this up and did a drive by a few times and spoke to the land owner. It worked real well.

What a day--thank god for days like this.

22lbs plus, 9 1/2 inch beard and just over an inch spurs

Congratulations. There are good and bad things said about that landowner list each spring so it's good to hear that the list worked for you. 15-18 Toms...that had to have been a rush.

Congratulation on harvesting a very nice bird! It is nice to hear a positive story about a landowner allowing you to hunt on their property.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
