Take me, take me! I'm a WI newb! smile

You never know StickNString grin

Don I was lucky to pull my first double last spring. The last 3 or 4 years we have had two tags to fill. Nice to always have that extra tag in the pocket.

My old man lives over in WI and the birds are gobbling there heads off each morning. My land owneer just sent me an e-mail to tell me he's seeing a group of toms strutting every morning right now. Good luck to pulling an extra tag. Only 80,000 left over. grin

At first I thought I was being greedy. whistle

Then after this weekend going to NE scouting I just love being in the turkey woods too much. This might be the only spring where I can do this. Most years I have early ball tourneys but for some reason they are all falling on different times and I will be able to hunt more and hope to do more video's this spring.

Don your right about WI for the tags.

I will have my sister out on season C. She has never gone so I'm hoping to get her hooked. I will be hunting her Father inlaw farm.

No need to feel guilty when there's almost 48,000 left-over tags. Guess if they want us to shoot 'em, we should probably take up the challenge.

I got my surplus D at 10:00:23 this am and I will try for season E tomorrow. Wisconsin has the best deal around for turkeys. It is shaping up to be another busy spring.

Picked up a surplus E tag in zone 4.

Never hunted Wisconsin before so I am looking forward to a new experience.

Have access to 160 acres in the Ellsworth area.

Don't know what to expect but the land owner says he sees turkeys all of the time.

We shall see.

  • 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.
