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.

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

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
