We'll see if I can keep the streak alive. I have second season in WI. That will be the earliest I've ever hunted and may mess with my mind a little as I generally prefer the last 2 seasons.

Good Luck to all those chasing the mighty Tom this spring...

A great year a side from the fact it rained or was misty the whole time we were there. The locals are great and a guy just flagged us down and told us about this area. It was aways from town but well worth the drive. I am already counting the days till I can go next year..

O.K. team.... 2 down 3 to go...

Short hunt this year... 25 minutes, called a hen and two strutters into Stella my decoy and took this fella...

Tale of the tape, 10 " beard, 7/8" spurs and 21.2 pounds...

I was happy I was able to pull this one off. Almost thought I may need to miss this years hunt... work has got me bogged down, but stayed at the office till 11:00 last night, loaded up my truck and went to bed at midnight. Got out to the field and couldn't find my calls in my vest... but I checked my other vest and there they were... put the choke in the gun and walked out to the 'killing field' as my buddy so eloquently calls it. Called a bossy ol hen in at 5:50 and at 5:55 had 2 strutters 13 yards from me... God I love this sport! Never have hunted this early before, the birds were REALLY receptive to the calls.

Hope everyone else finds success!

I feel real good about going 3 for 3 with the first three of us.

Its time to lay the smackdown on these other teams and show them who the real turkey hunters are.

We maybe have a shot at winning this.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
