Mn 2016

6 posts in this topic

Mn was a blast this year, well every year it's a blast turkey hunting. Had some close calls that just didn't work out. I was able to scout new land we just got permission on for hunting and sure nice to be out turkey hunting scouting for deer. I'm pumped for deer season already. We will be putting in a couple larger plots this spring so the work wil be coming soon. Once i'm done with turkey seasons.

I was lucky to get a bird after a bunch of close calls and mess ups . Sorry not the best picture was trying to just use the timer on my phone. Forgot my camera and I rarely have my phone with me hunting.


Saturday morning





For some reason cannot get the pictures to upload. Will try later.

looking good!  My kids taught me to take a video when I'm alone and then take a screen shot off of the video.  Works well for fish too.

I'm so mad Primos after 20 years of making that call stop making it last year. They made a few in a special package but no more. :(

My mn bird was taken with the Lil heartbreaker didn't have a mask on no mouth call in I just sat down hit the box call and a few mintues later my bird showed up came right in with a few little yelps. Took me a little bit to get my call in my hand since they caught me off guard looking for my calling when I was not ready.

Even for custom box calls the Lil Heartbreaker in my mind is one of the top box calls out there. I have an e-mail to Primos seeing if they would ever start making it again. Do not know why they would stop making that call it won a few years in a row best box call.

This spring from NE and MN I added 4 out of the 7 birds I called in for me and others. Only put a notch when the box call harvested the bird :)

Good luck to all starting today.

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.
    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
