Scored A Surplus Tag

Recommended Posts

236E

Later than I have hunted in the past but still looking forward to it.

Went to one of the big sporting goods stores that isn't really known for hunting and I was the only one there for a tag at 5:00. Surprised me that there was no line.

Congrats, now you just got to wait till the end of may but thats when I got my bird last year. Sometimes it's fun when they get really smart and you can still put a tag on one.

Actually E season is the first week of May. We have had pretty good luck hunting that season year in and year out. Good luck to you.

Pulled a tag for the first week of May E. This always a great time to hunt. Only had a few tags left yesterday. Was the first in line at ACE hardware think only 4 people in line.

Season E is a great season to hunt as gobblers are usually hitting the second gobbling peak and hens are starting to lay. So don't eave too early as mid morning is the time to score.

Yep, if you've only got a few hours to hunt I would probably go sit from 9-11. Soon as those hens start sneaking off to nest, those toms will start roaming.

I picked up my surplus tag for E as well. 2nd year in a row.

Got mine last night for 236E as well. I've got quite a few spots to hunt so I'm not to worried about finding some birds. Never seems to matter which season we hunt, only thing that really can mess it up is the weather and I can't do anything about that. My son Mitch will be hunting the youth hunt in WI the 9th of April then he and I will be hunting April 20-24. Then the wife will have her shot the 27th through May 1st. So hopefully we'll be able to put a few on the ground.

What fun would that be? You only get 5 days, might as well use them! I prefer to punch my tag on the afternoon of the 5th day. grin

Yeah I would like a few more days but I'm all booked. I'm elk hunting and doing a NE deer hunt this year added into all my turkey time. I'm still getting out which I like being in the woods for them morning fly down.Last year I punched my tag the last day in the last hour of the hunt.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
