Good bye March madness hello April!

Well as March madness gives way to April showers here in Michigan it is time to get ready for spring turkey hunting up here in Michigan. With our season running late April to the end of May and my tag for May 10th time to get out and do some scouting

With some of our fellow up north journal hunters already hunting away in the southern states and hear of Nancy Jo's Adams success down there it only adds to the blood flow to get out there and start some scouting around the area.

Will start our scouting by walking some areas from last year to see if the birds are in the area with all luck they will be. We will check our maps and look for new areas in case they are not.

Overall the turkey population I think had a good winter but with the improving population of the coyotes around here will also be checking to see if they are denting the turkey populations as well.

This will be my second year of turkey hunting and thanks to mike Adams for last year getting myself out there and showing me the ropes and hope I remember all the little tricks he showed me so this year,

I hope to have a few more first time hunters out there to see if we can get them a nice first time turkey.

With all that going on we also will have some fishing season openers at the end of April and we are going to do our best to get out and get some time on the water fishing for some walleyes and or trout so the upcoming months should be filled with some fun outdoors activities

So stay tuned and see how our fishing and scouting go as we march up to the Turkey season here in Michigan!


  1. Bring on the turkey and fishing seasons. I'm ready.
