The less I come on here the faster the season comes. We have 5 sites this year total for 2 guys. My buddy got one last year and this year I get first shot. He just got his rug back Sat. and it looks sweet!!! Tried a new burn a couple days ago and smelt really good and sweet. Will try that if nothing else works. Couple of our spots had good sign (scat). So we will see what happens.

I can't wait! One week to go! It never fails though. It has been cool all year and now that baiting is about to start, they are saying that it is going to get much warmer. Oh well. It is always worth the heat and the bugs.

how much bait do you guys put out at one site and do you check 2 or 3 time a week. Thanks Adam

Start out with a decent amount, enough to get them to start coming in. I don't know...100 lbs at the most, less if you have close access. Once your bait starts getting hit then start putting less and less out there to create competition for the bait. I would check 3 times a week if possible. Check every couple of days

Everyday,and enough to get a good boar to claim the site.

Not one to use the same stuff everyone else toss's out or for putting less and less if you have competition around.

Like seeing all the corn in the scat at my baits since I don't toss corn I know they are not feeding enough elsewhere. Once they start marking trees I know its time to drop a trail cam.

I have pics of multiple bears at a bait all at once during shooting hours.That ends once a good boar stakes claim tho.If you bait regularly same time, he will listen for you to leave and saunter in.

IF your in a good area nature seems to provide all the assistance you need....

Wednesday can't get here quick enough. I wish my clients would pick their mounts up TODAY......

Area 51 on here. We went a up a few weeks ago and the sign is amazing. My party is hunting with a couple rookies this year and it is very exciting. It is pretty cool to see newbies get really pumped. I sure hope they know what kind of work is coming their way. Good luck to everyone out there!

    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
