Creating your own lures gives you full control over design and color. You can also modify the weight in your lures for better balance and movement in the water. Making your own lures will also save you money in the long run.
Bummer let me know if you have any good turkey tag soup recipes? I hope I don't suffer the same situation.
As of now I am leaving at 9pm tomorrow after my sons baseball game. Driving 400 miles west through the night with the intention to be at our cabin door just before sunrise Friday morning. Sleep is over rated, I will take a nap on a hillside with the ticks waiting for a gobbler show up lol.
Plan is to hunt Friday to Monday, I would really like to bag a bird early Friday and get it done the first day. Then just relax and have fun the rest of weekend.
Not much of a tweety bird guy, but I was driving around Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge this weekend. Coincidentally, Detroit Lakes was hosting the birding festival. Lots of the little critters in concentrated areas. To prove my ignorance, one lady asked what one of the birds was called. All I could come up with was Edward.
