Who's turkey hunting WI?

20 posts in this topic

First season is getting close, April 15th. Who's heading out between then and May 20th? I've got season C in zone 4, was gonna buy a leftover tag but they were sold out by the time I tried.

Got permission for two new spots on Sat and put up a ground blind yesteday in all the wind. Time to polish up the calls and pattern the gun - got some new fiber optic sights for it. Can't wait!

You KNOW I'm in! May 6-10 and May 13-17. Got some really great farms south of Baldwin, east of Ellsworth. Can't come soon enough.

What kind of sights did you get? I put some TruGlo Magnum Gobble Dots on my 870 Wingmaster several years ago. Love 'em!

This will be my first year turkey hunting so I'm kinda pumped. I am in zone 6 season c. I've done a lot of scouting and am really surprised on the amount of birds up north here.

I have some Williams sights that I stripped a small allen screw on - got the replacement the night before my season started last year frown

Thats some pretty country by Ellsworth.

Also my first year on the Turkey adventure and i'm really excited!! My father-in-law is going to take me out. Drew Zone 1- 4th season. And bought an extra permit for Zone 4 last season. So my goal is to get at least one bird. Good luck out there everyone!

Hey Klecker, you have a cabin up in the Barrons, or family, or what brings you up that way?

We have a family hunting cabin up there. No pressure, and lots of land to roam.

Ya I like it up there. Turkey hunting is tuff sometimes, plenty off deer. A few nice beer running around.

A bud from the musky club shot a tom with 6 beards last week - 2 of them were 10"! Weighed 24lb with inch spurs. Apparently will score number 32 in the state in the non-typical category. Will try to get some pics up - he's old school though so it might be a while.

I live in MN now. OH well. But I was over to take my son out for the youth hunt in the George W mead area. We had a log of gobbling right at sun rise then nothing we did work one bird three times to with in 30 yardes and he just couldn't see the bird. We will be hunting the area again the May 6-10 season.

Well for being a rookie I thought I did o.k., I never got a bird but I did see 20 birds the first three days but never fired a shot. I guess there is more turkeys than I thought up here in zone 6. I am Now Hooked.

My pops just stopped by to show off his bird. 22lbs with about a 9 inch beard and .75" spurs. Sounds like he had quite the morning - multiple birds gobbling, had a half dozen jakes in his lap, and finally had that one slowly work his way in full strut until at 17 yards he couldn't take it anymore!

Just got back from a very frustrating 5 days in southern zone 4. Not a lot of gobbling. Saw lots of hens. Much more pressure than years past. Spooked just about every bird saw.

Good thing I have next season as well and the last season in MN so I'm not giving up yet.

DonBo - you'll have to head back there this fall and thin those hens out a bit cool That was just a warm up for ya anyways with two seasons left, probably hammer a big one right off the roost the first morning next time out - good luck!!

BTW - good to hear about holding off on the long shot you weren't comfortable with, too many guys just let er rip in such situations.
