Scouting St Croix and Dunn Counties today. Looks like there are turkeys everywhere!! I think September 4 is the magic day in Wisconsin and I can't wait. Google Earth will be helpful now that I have coordinates and property lines. :D

Um, better put a 1 in front of that 4 the season opens Sept 14th. We wouldn't want one Wisconsin's finest COs writing you a ticket.

You are right about the turkeys, there a lot of them...
Come on Fall!
later,

Try going to the counties website as they may also have plat books online. I know I used this a few years ago in Polk county and it helped a lot. Heck you might even find more land to hunt them you already have.

Thanks Dewey! Think my plate is load, but I like the plat books for boundary lines. Good suggestion.

One of the challenges of hunting on a dairy farm is that corn is planted in many of the good hunting areas and it will still be standing at the start of the turkey season. Of course there are those alfalfa hay fields that look good. Hope to come back a few days before season starts to locate some birds. September 14 is one of the earliest starting dates that I have found and it is a month earlier than Illinois. :D

This evening while coming home from the St Croix Fair, we saw turkeys in the soybean fields. They were giants and looked like emus. :D

I foresee a very long sleepless night for you before the season starts:). Sounds awesome. I am looking forward to reading about the reports.

Good luck with your fall hunt. I have hunted in the fall for about 6 years now and its a lot of fun especially if you can get a good break up and call them back in. Usually hunt Michigan and they changed their season to open earlier a few years ago. It usually opens around Sept 15th now. I have yet to have luck early and seem to have better luck in the later part of October- beginning of November. Not sure why but they seem to be easier to find. I suspect that it is because they are still somewhat spread out then. But in October/November they seem to be more concentrated in the bigger flocks on the farm I hunt. Again good luck fall turkey hunting is fun.

You are about to experience the finest fall turkey hunting in the nation.

You can try for what I call the Annual Wisconsin Slam-- WI has a turkey season during all 4 seasons.
It is summer until Sept 21 that means you have 8 days to kill a summer turkey.
Fall turkey is from 9/22 to 12/20
Winter turkey is from 12/21 to 12/31
Then of course there is the 6 week spring season.
Kill a turkey during each season you have Wisconsin Slammed. Kill one on New Year's Eve for bonus points. Sorry there are no record books to record the feat, no awards and no headlines just the personal satisfaction knowing you are a complete year round turkey hunter.

Trust me on this, each of those seasons offer its own set of challenges which spring only turkey hunters refuse to accept. ;) Welcome to the rarified club of turkey addicts.
later,
