Not much of a check in for us- it's Ryan, Morgan, my nephew Logan, and me joined by Sorgy.  Sorgy, PM me if you've got any bright ideas for a team name.

Headhunters!  Sorgy came up with it and I like it!  I don't see how I can edit my post to change the name, however.  

 

One bit of good news for the team- my daughter is going to use a vertical bow this year!  I'm excited for her and I hope she can get a crack at one with it.  She's used a crossbow in the past and it's really done a number of the birds when matched with a Bullhead.  But, she's swapping over to a big kid bow this year and we'll give that a try.  I hope she can get it done!

Welcome Hugo!

 

I'm excited to get out there and give it a try! This Saturday I scouted all of the spots I have permission to hunt and didn't see or hear a single turkey. Yesterday evening I went to my best spot and didn't see any tracks in the snow and didn't hear or see a thing. I think the birds have not broken up and moved into those areas yet. I predict a very tough start for us!

I am headed to Chicago for work in a couple hours and won't be back until Friday. I should be able to hunt Saturday and Sunday this weekend. good luck to everyone who gets out tomorrow!

Welcome Hugonian!

 

Glad to have another on the team. Are you hunting the Hugo area this winter? I have several areas I may try. My fall back area is public land near home.

 

Good Luck

Glad to be on board.

Have a MN Archery tag so lots of opportunity ahead.

Will be hunting our Hugo property.

Had about 20" of snow in our area so that will slow things down early on.

Have had quite a few birds around though.

They seem to have broken up into their groups.

Will probobly hold off a bit and let things settle down.

Also hace a C Season tag for Wisconsin.

Not sure how that will play out but have access to a property down by Nelson that typically holds quite a few birds.

Should be another fun season.

Bird down!  Ryan tagged out yesterday on the first day of the year he could hunt. It's a pretty nice Tom with 3/4" sure and an 8 3/4" beard. I'll get some pics up and it entered when I can.

I'll try to get some pictures posted today. I also had Morgan out on Saturday and she just didn't have the patients 2 stick it out shoot a bird. She made it until 8:15 and was ready to quit. I tried like heck to get her to stay but she was tired and whiny and ready to go. Seemed like a time where it was best to try to accept losing the battle but hopefully winning the war so we packed up and headed home. After I loaded the truck we turned around and went past the spot our blind had just been and there was a nice tom 20 yards away from where we just left. Doah!

 

I'm a little concerned about getting her out enough to have a legitimate chance with her. I kind of regret including her on the team because I'm not sure she will hunt enough to have a legit chance. 10 year old little girls have a mind of their own no doubt! She's not nearly as driven and single track minded as Ryan is when it comes to hunting.

Scoot, I have had the same issues with both my 11 year old boy and 14 year old girl.  They have both ended up with opportunities each years.  Frustrating as it my be, it is still worth it.  Thats why we have teams to pick each other up, i might bet, being a Scoot child, she will impress us by the end.

 

Good luck out there!

If early mornings aren't her thing just hunt later.   If I had to cut out 2 hours of the day it would be the first two.  I'd hear less gobbling, but I rarely shoot a bird early.

I've shot many early but you're right, get one going later in the day and its much easier to get them to commit.   Got mine at 6pm.

Maybe she needs more to do in the blind.   Camera and binoculars to watch the other critters running around.  Maybe some after dinner shorter evening hunts if you can set up where they like to roost and catch birds coming back.

Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.

We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.

A friend and I came down to Taylor's Falls this weekend to hunt with another buddy. In short we've had our butts kicked so far.  Had 3 nice gobblers coming in twice yesterday but they got weird at 20 yards and bailed. Two different jakes also wouldn't come in too. Typical turkeys being turkeys...

 

Hopefully today one commits.

    • 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........

    • 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.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?  
    • What the frequency Kenneth?
