    It Begins

    Geez, what took so long?
  2. Gotta love all the tags and opportunities available in Wisconsin! Well my Black Hills plans got pushed back a couple days because of the 22" (!) of snow they got last week. We're now leaving this Saturday instead of Thursday. That will give me a couple opportunities here at home before we leave. Good luck to all those who get to hunt the opener tomorrow!

  4. I've got a MN archery tag in my pocket, but not sure I'll make opening day (next Wednesday) because I leave Thursday morning for the Black Hills. Just a quick, long Easter weekend. Pretty excited to be back chasing Merriams. The following weekend is a meet & greet with the women who will be hunting in the Women in the Outdoors mentored archery turkey hunt. This will be at my archery club, Chilakoot Bowhunters. They will participate in a 3D shoot and learn some of the info needed on their hunt later in May. We'll let them know what to expect on the hunt and have them shoot from blinds and learn some hunting and calling techniques. First weekend in May, I'll be in Wisconsin with the young son of a good friend, trying to get him his 1st bird. The following week will see us in WS (season D) for a full 5 days. We camp and hunt pretty hard. Got 3 tags for this week! The next weekend is the women's hunt. This is a ton of fun. 5,000 acres owned by the U of M. We stay right at the facility just like a big hunting camp. Most of these women have never hunted anything and listening to them telling their stories after the hunt each day is a true pleasure. In between all this I'll try to fill my MN tag before and after work, or whenever I can get a free couple hours. Told my wife I'll see her in June.
  5. Awesome photo! Is that a trailcam pic? I'd hunt there.

    Ne 2019

    Wow, great start to the season! Hope we have near the luck in SoDak next week.
  7. My favorite is the one that works best on any given day. I almost always carry 2 box calls, 2 or 3 pot calls with 3 or 4 strikers and a couple diaphragms.
  8. Just scored my Zone 4 bonus tag. Quick and easy.
  9. Buddy of mine near Ellsworth, WI said he found 6 dead turkeys in a small area right around his cabin. I'm hunting that area and he's got me worried.

    New Bow

    New bows are so exciting. Hope it treats you well.
  11. Just got notice I was drawn for SoDak prairie turkey. This is the spot I deer and turkey hunted for 30 years in the fall. Some of you may remember the write ups I did of those hunts. This will be my 1st spring hunt here in a LONG, LONG time. Archerysniper will join me on this hunt.
  12. You can buy one a day till they're gone.
  13. Thanks Scoot. If you could do some pre-season scouting and lay some GPS coordinates on me, that'd be great! Oh, then come help us pack some meat, that'd be great too! Just kidding of course but thanks for the offer, I may have to pick your brain some.
  14. 10 long years we've been building up bonus points. Just got notice it's official, we drew! Pretty darned excited about it. Time to get in shape.
