Pics from a turkey hunt

4 posts in this topic

Fun time today. First year trying for these buggers and 3rd trip to the field. The first pic the sreerning is up and it tunrned out not too bad. Zoom time grin First a hen came out and had herself a nice dustbath. The a jake and tom came out. Then back in, then back out, then back in, then back out. Sheesh! Get over here will ya!! The Tom got to 52 yards but I wasn't gonna fling my arrow unless he made it to 30. They went back in and I decided to wait till next time. Home at 6:30. Also took a deer tick off my hand and killed the little sucker!

When they take a dust bath, they take a dust bath! Fun series. Thanks for posting. I've worn enough ticks this spring to last a lifetime. Enough to warrant getting some permanone to treat one set of clothing for heading out in the wild. I suppose that doesn't mean the dog won't share hers. Since she gets treated, I think they abandon ship and come find me in the night. Maybe that's what that dustbath was all about!

Nice images. I just got back from turkey hunting in WI. Only seen one hen, no photo ops.

Saw a tom north of Deer River last weekend and a sandhill crane. First time I have seen them that far north. Well not true, I did see a turkey last year that way as well.

    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though    
    • Maybe you can just carefully pull the right cable through with the old one but doughtfull if you got the foamed version.
    • Looked in every hole I could find. Hope I got it all but will leave out the traps for a few days.
