Fall Turkey Hunting

Recommended Posts

With most of us only being able to take one deer this year, why not extend the season with fall turkey hunting?

Tags are over the counter here in Minnesota with the season opening Oct. 4th. Unfortunately the limit is one bird. Any bird.

There are always lots of leftover permits available across the river in Wisconsin. You can buy one a day till they run out, and they don't run out. Season opens this Saturday, Sept 13.

Since you're going to be in the woods anyway, why not give it a try this year. You may just get hooked on a new sport.

Right on Don

I will have one in the pocket and if things work out make my way to WI. I also will be putting more time in hunting in the metro to put a few does on the ground for the freezer. Going to take the first buck that gives me a shot not going to be picky this year.

Turkey hunting should always be on our minds spring is never too far away either. grin

Less than 3 weeks to opener. Heard several gobbles from my deer stand yesterday morning. smile

These birds were seen just down the road from my metro hunting area.

I saw 3 hens with about 25- 30 little ones this morning, along with 4 or 5 males in a field. All were within city limits, and none will be victim to hunting. Still cool to see!

Donbo, when you say they're over the counter, is that for archery or gun or do you have to declare a weapon??

Nope, fall tags are over the counter, no distinction on weapon used.

It's fun & can be very fast. I have a flock of 10 toms hanging out at one of my properties I hunt. Got a big one out of that same group, which was down to 5 or 6 two falls ago after I shot him.

    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.
