Hugonian here.

I will be archery hunting the Minnesota season and have season C and D tags for Wisconsin.

Saw a nice beard dragging tom cross the road onto my property last evening.

Hope he sticks around.

I will be trying to score my first bird with a bow this year.  After years of bagging birds with a gun, I figured it was time.  I just plan on hunting the MN season.  But there is a possibility of a quick trip to Nebraska.

This guy was hanging around out back this morning with a couple of hens.

Might need to set the blind up on the deck. :)

I like strutting to first!

 

Morgan will be first up to bat at our house for the Minnesota season. I scouted again this morning and found a few groups of birds but only one of them was on land I can hunt. Not as many birds around as usual for me but it only takes one! If I can reach them in a decent spot Morgan will be playing hooky on Wednesday morning for a little while.

Ha never mind that its all dried up for some reason I thought yesterday was the 12th :cry: I guess I have been working too much overtime have not had a day off in a couple weeks.

 


I scored a 3 day access to a very nice property South of Lakeville. Its pretty much my dream place to hunt.

 

I am going out tomorrow at our farm in Dayton I may pass on a turkey given the opportunity just to hunt the other property. I am hoping that this will open a door to a new deer hunting property as well. I did see a nice Tom and two hens going down our property line though it may be hard to pass up one when the time comes :P

 

Good luck tomorrow everyone

I am trying to show my kids the ropes the next few weeks.

Oh Boy the opener was eventful.  Lots of birds and turkey talk!

Isaac had 9 toms & jakes around him for 45 mins.  What chaos in the woods.

 

We even got into an argument with a hen 15 yds out!  It was fun talking to her.

 

No shots yet for isaac.

WP_20170412_08_25_20_Pro.jpg

I see how they are moving on the property a little blind and decoy readjustment and I should have them dead to rights. They were all coming straight behind me the big toms never say my decoys as they were block by my blind they git distracted when a hen came by from the other way... Tomorrow I am going to give this property a break and hunt my Clearwater property.

 

I only started to bring them in with loud aggressive calling

    • By only hot bathing them for 10 minutes max it seems to work! I've heard of the above methods but never did them.
    •   I took the blades back off then buffed them clean with a dremel, oiled them, and touched them up with a lazer hand sharpener.  Not sure if a guy can exchange since they aren't flat.   Added some pics so you can see the curve in them. I think they must be a "jet" blade.  
    • Can't wait to see.....  
    • Grape leaves are said to also help.  
    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
