Wi 2016 HUnt

Recommended Posts

Getting pretty busy here at work so will not have much to write. We got lucky this last season in WI and punched 4 tags. We pulled a triple on one setup and I was able to take a tough Tom that was giving me the slip for a couple days after scouting and watching him in the same field for two days. I was going to try and save him for a friend but he ended up not coming out so I went after him. Took me a sometime just to target him for him to make a mistake after getting by me in the morning. He sure liked to gobbler yelp would gobble a little but he sure yelped a lot. A hen in the morning saved him called in both but she beat him to me and walked out to him and pulled him away from me. That evening was able to get that hen to come in and he sat in the field for about another 30 minutes and he couldn't take it any longer and finally closed the distance and came in to check us out right as the rain started to come down hard. Was a great spring and already putting in vacation for next spring. Wish we had another month of this. Was nice to sleep in to 5am the last couple days better than the 3:45 .

Good luck who are still after them

A triple!  Nice that the turkeys and hunters all showed up at the same place. ;)

 

Congrats on closing the deal with the tough tom.

It was a great sight to see since one of the shooters was his first bird. We put 4 jakes to bed that night but from talking to the landowner we knew there were 6 long beards hanging together on this chunk.

The gobbling was amazing and the most I heard up here and not in NE. I saw one bird hit the ground so I hit them with a couple yelps and the next birds started flying to the field next thing you know we had 16 birds on the ground and all out in the field working towards us. Four Tom's ,6 Jakes and 6 hens. They fought a little strutted a lot and gobbled there heads off in the field.

One of those mornings it all worked out. Told out new hunter you don't always have mornings like that.

    • 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.
