Anyfish2 and Isaac checking in.  Isaac will be hunting until he gets one (I hope)!

 

I will be hunting with the bow this year for the first time.  Initial plan is to hunt when the kids dont want to or are too busy.

 

Land owners texted me this morning, birds first showed themselves today. Hope they stick around.

DonBo checking in.  I'll have a MN archery licence in my pocket, and get out when I can, probably most often a couple hours before work. 

Taking a kid out on his 1st turkey hunt opening weekend, then my 94 year old father the 2nd week, also taking a kid on his 1st hunt in WI that weekend. 

I may get to fish that next weekend, then I'll be spending several days in WI with my own permit.

Week after that, doing a women's mentored hunt for the DNR.  Whew!  

Told my wife not to plan anything for me for the next 6 weeks.  We'll see how that goes.

Good luck with your Dad this year. As I recall you put him on one last year. Always fun to take a newbie out. Good luck there too.

How are things looking in your areas guys?

Took a walk in the woods last night. Definitely some birds around, not a lot of sign though.  Found a couple of strutting areas, could find sign of a roost however.

I have not check my farms I have access to since March 17 my shed hunting trip. Tomorrow after work, I will drive and roost some birds for the morning hunt. What about you?

Plan on hitting the woods Saturday Morning.  Not real keyed in the birds yet.

 

They will turn more predictable.

On my first sit right now. 40 birds in the field, at least 5 shooters, 2 of those are very nice. Think they have to come by me to roost. Fingers crossed.

lots of gobbling this morning.  Birds seem to be staying in fairly tight area of woods so far this morning. They are near, but I cant seem to talk the hens over.  Had a nice hollering match earlier, was fun, though not productive.

3 Jakes came onto my lone upright hen decoy about 8am.  They turned out to be my test birds.  First year with the bow so,  tested what I could get away with, drawing the bow.  They didnt like it! 

Birds stiĺl talking here.

The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch.

Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there.

Good luck guys.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • 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.
