Turkey Pictures

19 posts in this topic

Not the biggest turkey in the woods but when the big tom's turned and stayed out of range he came in strutting,spitting, and druming I could not pass up a 10 yard shot on a strutting jake. He went down right in his tracks and when the big tom's saw that they came over and started jumping on him and spurring him. Great morning had 11 legal birds come into 55 yards and only one hen,done buy 8:05.

Congratulations!

Where you in a blind? The reason I ask is because I'm thinking of using my bow this year, instead of the gun.

Yes I use a blind I have done it before without one but it is really hard especially right now with the birds being flocked up you have alot of eyes to pick you off. I had a much smaller jake this morning come about 2 feet from my blind and stayed their for 10 min and didn't even care it was there and I almost allways set up in the middle of a feild they don't care about a blind so set it were ever they like to hang out and strut.

Nice work archerysniper. Any bird, especially one with a bow, is a trophy. It's nice to be carrying something out of the woods on opening morning.

I stopped using a shotgun in 97 for more of a challenge and that is what I got lots of unfilled tags but it sure is a rush when you do connect. But any turkey with any weapon is a real trophy I have shot lots of whitetails with a bow and a turkey by far is the most challenging of all in minnesota.

Hey, that's a nice bird, what kind of broad head did you use?

Slick trick it's a 1-1/4 cut minne fixed four blade. I went to buy my NAP spitfires but at $38 for three I stuck to my big game head wich the bow was still sighted in for and I had a dozen left.

Cool!

Like the others, I am impressed when someone takes a bird with a bow. I keep it on my mind every year then chicken out and grab the shotgun.

Part of the problem is I don't really like using a blind. It's the claustrophobic in me I guess. Or its just the fact that I really look forward to wild turkey on the smoker grill! grin

Way to go sniper - no need to justify shooting that fine jake with archery equipment. He's a trophy in my books.

    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
    •   Unfortunately, we just don't know when that will be (injury, free agency, etc.), and by the time they wind down someone else will have already taken their place. More to the point, we need to get to the dance a few times before we will be a threat to the likes of GS, or anyone else for that matter. Get these young guys some playoff experience, continue to build, and add pieces wherever and whenever we can. Keep moving ahead, that's all we can do. It's a cliche, but we can't control what other teams do...only what we do, and I think we are making good decisions with players and personnel lately.
    • Just a guess but we are probably giving it a year or two with the team we have to see what they can accomplish, I know that isn't as sexy and making trades and some big moves or blowing up the team but of the last 5-6 years last year was the first time we could be consider a true cup contender. That one other year we got Dubs and went on a late season run I think a case could be made for being a dark horse contender but of course we got booted by Chicago so ya they were just better than us on every level that year. Eventually Pommers will be gone, Staal's contract will be up and who knows what happens with Koivu and we will be forced to re-tool and get younger. This season will be very telling if we can sustain the level of play we saw for a good chunk of the season last year or if we go mental again. The positive to the mental side of our game is if we get hot at the right time we can be a force, the hard part is lining that up for the playoffs when we just can't seem to get it all together. 
    • It is summer bacon season, plus they have gotten trendy on their own.  
    • Fletcher must really like these guys that are small and quick.  I don't understand why they are trying so hard to keep the team intact.  They haven't made it past the 2nd round for the 5-6 years.  We've had this discussion before, but at what point do you say this just isn't working as is?   They have to move good players to get good players.  
    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
