I live in Sartell and was driving to work today, traffic stopped on Riverside.Looking around I was surprised to see 6 toms displaying for a hen. They had her surrounded she just kept eating and was oblivious to all their advances.I rolled down my window and gobbled as good as I could, They all answered right away.They keep replying as fast as I could gobble at them.I wish I had a video camera, this would have made a great Youtube video.Is it April yet?

Well, it is a beautiful spring day. smile

Actually, I've seen them strut and gobble at all times of the year, but cabin fever is probably getting to them right now, just as it is for us.

I've noticed the past decade of winters or so the yoy toms strutting like crazy, saw this this AM, now every morning nearly on the gravel as I'm first car through every day they'll be on the gravel strutting up a storm, however where the mature toms are I'm not sure yet, these are just young guys.

Just like any guy they are always ready. I've called them in during the fall seasons strutting and gobbling. Also seen this before during the winter times too. It's all about the ladies as it's for most of us.

Can't wait till March 31st I will be in NE with the bow. Get this season going .

I was in Chaska this past Saturday morning about 7:00am and saw a flock of about a dozen turkeys, and the toms were displaying right on the side of the road.

Hi hoyt4 this is off your subject. I saw a picture of a giant shed you had found a main fraim 4x4. Was that found in MN?

Yes it was

My find was a few years ago. I watched him the last couple years still. Rubs up the trees in my landowners front yard. Not from north central. Many bigger sheds found since this guy. Sure is fun when I could see him on a regular basis. Top one on the link Matchset posted this one not sure where he got it from. Had a friend hold it so she could make it look bigger.whistle

Saw a tom showing off for the ladies this weekend up by Badoura...Saw two different hens that were miles apart crossing the road (MN hwy 87). I think those birds on the extreme northern end of the MN range are having trouble with the deep snow. I know I haven't seen singles like that back home in the MN and Cannon River valley areas.

Really fluffed out this morning, maybe 75 birds total and roughly 10 of them in mid season form this morning, until the bald eagle did a driveby and scattered them into a wild frenzy.

    • Hmmm.  My cheapest camera is a Wildgame Innovations unit but I haven’t been a great fan of it.  It’s not the NANO version but though, just a cheap one I picked up in a small shop during a hunt cuz I felt I NEEDED one right then.   I do like my old Moultrie and am looking at the M50i as a much updated version of it.   Still comparing their line up.  If I just bought now, that’s what I’d go with.   That WGI 360 sounds like something I have to check out!
    • I have been a Wild Game Innovations fan for most of my time using cams.  I really really like the NANO version they put out.  Compact, only take 4 AA batteries, great battery life and the pictures have been very good quality.  That being said, last year I won a Moultrie Game Spy 2 at a company party and have been very impressed with it.  Same as the Nano, takes only 4 batteries and pictures are very good as well.  These two cameras are now my "go to" and I won't be needing to spend  100's on other cameras when these work great.  The one camera that I am thinking about getting though is the WGI 360 degree camera.  Supposed to be able to take pictures 360 degrees so you don't miss anything moving behind where a normal camera can't detect them.
    • yeah the last couple years have been rather tough for me, but all is good and I can't wait to get back into the stand.  Are you still working the Deployed Soldier/Disabled Soldier hunt at Ripley?  We stopped going as it was just too early in the season and weather was always so darn warm.  Wish they would have held it right prior to the "big" hunts at the end of the month.  Always a good time though.    You'll hear more from me in the time to come and look forward to hearing all your reports of the big one!!!
    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
