Worthington has a NWTF chapter. Tomorrow's Turkeys is the chapter name. You can contact Shaun Johnson for info.

I'm seeing more and more Turkeys in Murray co. The dgermstad lake area and Lake Shetec area seem to be getting huntable populations. I see them over by the Pipestone co line too.

I would love to see more turkey habitat in the ground in Murray co. Don't be afraid to start your own chapter, with hard work and a good group of hunters you will be amazed how easy it is to get started.

I'm the treasurer of our local DU start up and we wrote a check for around 15 grand each of our first four years and are continuing to grow.

Good luck finding the right group. Hans

To start our local chapter of DU we got a ton of support from chapters around us. We also had a good regional director, and a long history of DU support through our local gulf outing.

If I were Starting a new NWTF chapter, I would start by contacting national and get the number of a contact person close by, then I would contact the nearest local chapter, go to a meeting and make sure you are not duplicating areas or sponsors. Find out the best place for your meetings and banguet and give it a go.

We started with a mailing to past and current members in the area(which we got from national) that stated we were looking for committee members for a new chapter. It did't take long to find a good group of guys and gals.

NWTF might be harder get going and they might have different rules to get a charter ,that's why I would attend a local banquet or go through the closest chapter first. You don't want to step on any toes, and more than likely these existing members will be attending your first banguets and be early sponsors.

Our DU chapter, Sportman's club, and NWTF often meet on the same night at the same place in Northfield. We get great support from our PF friends too. You'll find you see the same faces over and over again-but that's half the fun.

Keep us all posted about what you find out. Hans

    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?
