                       Seminars

                       Art Helin and Tom Lochner

     Art Helin brought a solid seminar discussing the Top 10 Turkey Hunting Secrets to Wilderess Fish   and Game, Saturday March 29th. A couple  of secrets for you:                                                        1.  Use Scent Blockers(Helps avoid mistakes with deer).                                                               2.  Call from uphill ( Turkeys can see better down the slopes than they can looking to the top)           

3.  Hunt 10 A.M. 2 P.M.  ( Other than shooting a bird right off the roost, this is the best time of day).

    Finally,April has arrived in Wisconsin
and people's thoughts are beginning to  focus on fishing rivers for walleyes and to the many hunters who successfully drew a per-mit, to turkey hunting. Much of the north-ern third of the state is still has snow in the woods and most of the lakes still  have over a foot of ice, but I have been seeing turkeys displaying and strutting on sunny, southern hillsides while doing some scouting. The turkeys have done so well in my little corner of the state that it not is uncommon to see dozens of turkeys flocked together in a farmers fields as they spread
manure or pick through unplowed fields. The turkeys pick through the manure
looking for any corn or grain that passed through the milk cows.

   I regularly drive country and rural roads
looking and glassing the fields and woods looking for turkeys. Though, the wild tur-keys are bunched up now, they will soon disperse as the weather moderates and we get closer to the breeding season. But, if  you see turkeys in an area there is a good chance that the birds will still be in that area when the season opens April 16th. Early season scouting can greatly help in finding
locations where there are good turkey popu-lations for hunting. If you have drawn
a permit for a specific zone, stop and ask some farmers if you can hunt their property. You would be surprised that if you are courteous and present yourself well, many farmers will still give hunting permission. Plus, most counties in some of the better turkey zones have public hunting grounds and state parks that are open to hunting turkeys in the spring.

This is the time of the year that outdoors people live for because they can now participate in two of their favorite activities, fishing and hunting. Living on the Wisconsin River and surrounded by thousands of acres of public hunting land at the Mazomanie Public Hunting Grounds, I can fish and hunt any day that I want during the months of November and December. The Wisconsin River allows fishing for most species year-round with the exception of catfish and sturgeon. You don’t have to drive to northern Wisconsin or Minnesota for quality fishing and hunting when you have both within a few miles of Sauk Prairie.
