TEAM # 6 Trick'm N stick'm

65 posts in this topic

Hey, lets get to know a little about each other and their experience, and get a team name figured out.

I will be hunting around Evansville/Lake Christina in zone 218 with my buddy APA who's on team 4.

I turky hunted last year with shotgun for the first time and had a blast. Had a couple opportunites, but they didn't turn out quite like I wanted, but that's hunting. It truly is an awesome sport. This year I didn't get drawn so I will be using the Hoyt to try and Arrow a Tom.

Heres a few team name suggestions, feel free to comment about them or add more to the list: Strut Soldiers, Tom Tumblers, Gobbler Getters, Thundergobbles, Trophy Tom Trumpers, Thunder Thumpers. I am Particular to Strut Soldiers, the rest I just threw out there.

ac777,

It looks like we have two archery hunters in the group. I will be hunting the last two seasons with my bow. We will have to wait for some others to chime in.

Awesome, loving the avatar also.

Allright, now we are just waiting on Shiner2367 and rbs. We also need some opinons on team names either post up some new ones or pick from one of ours. So far the ones I like most would probably be Strut Soldiers, and Trick m and Stick em.

Hi guys...forgot to check in here last week. I will be hunting last 2 seasons with bow. This will be my first time hunting with the bow but I am pumped up for it. I have hunted turkeys for about 12 years or so. I hunt north of Redwood Falls along the MN river on private land. BTW I like trick em and stick em

I will be hunting in either 227 or 236 unless something better comes up. It will be interesting to see how the properties are used that late in the season. Both have decent numbers of bird but also have hunting pressure on the property of very nearby.

Good Luck

Got to get out and practice my shooting from the blind.

Sorgy, got a quick guestion for you. Im guessing u must have a over the counter bow tag since u said ur hunting late season. Does that mean you can hunt more than one season and any area you want?

I'm going to bring both. I have a Season C tag for 425, i can use either and there is nothing in the rules about not having both. So i'm going bring my bow and gun. So it depends on how close i let him get.

Yep your right about the 50+ only for archery. so since your hunting around redwood in 425 your ok. Which season is everyone going?

After seventeen years, there are two things i've found to be ture every single year. 1. the excitment never changes and 2. the five day seasons are never enough. So I'm headed down to Kasnsas for four days on april 16-19, then its a short minnesota season april 25-26 then Nebreaska may 9-11. I love turkey hunting. The fiancee says to much but o well.

Sounds like you are going to have some fun. I thought about going to SD this year but I don't think I will be able to do it. I need to get in with a couple guys I know and just go. Maybe next year. Anyone else have multiple bird chances?

    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
