Hey guys, just figured i would post and see if anyone was planning a great spring time hunt (turkey, bear,etc....)

I myself am planning on hunting turkeys this spring in michigan. Should be a really good season been a mild winter with little snow, leaving the crops out for all the game animals.

Hopefully I will draw a Spring Bear permit in Washington. Also planning on Washington Turkeys and back home to Missouri to turkey hunt the family farm. :p

Hoping to draw a spring bear archery tag, and will be chasing turkeys with a bow this spring also.

I will be chasing brown/grizzly and maybe black bear myself.
my six year old daughter wants to shoot a black bear so we will be baiting for her.

Turkeys for me this spring. CA doesn't have a spring bear season and I don't have the money for an out of state trip yet this year.

I am counting down the days.... I'll be after one monster gobbler, I had him at 30 yards last year with no shot, chased him all season but never got him, passed on numerous birds to get him. It was the first time in 14 years of not getting a bird and he was worth it. He is all of 12 inches and like a rope.

Mid June we will be after bears, would be 5th bear in a row..... And by far the most anticipated is New Zealand for Red Stag April 6th of which I dream of nightly :)

If I can get the tag, I will hunt black bear (red) on the Jicarilla with my Apache friends. We use bait, stands, spot and stalk, and hounds. This year my grandson is going to be with me. We will be going in may to avoid small and female bear.

Why May? Is that early or late for your country? Bears aren't even out in May where I hunt....

Man Montana sounds like you got a very exciting trip coming up. I would be dreaming about that New Zealand red stag every day till I went lol.

That turkey sounds awesome its always great to try and catch up on an animal like that when you know they are around. The accomplishment of get them makes it all the more exciting when you have put in all that time and work to get them.

I think season opens April 15. We didnt get enough snow to cat hunt. I hunted near Noxon Mt in may and the snow was melted, plenty of wolf and griz on that hunt. I didnot see either but did see plenty of sign. My thinking is only large boars will be out may 20.

Sounds like people are planning some fun for the spring. Love hearing people are taking their kids out with them. That is a great bonding time and way to keep this sport that we love around. Got to make sure we pass it onto the next generation.

Starting off with taking my son on his first turkey hunt. Using bows first, then shotguns if needed. If the weather hold and we don't get anymore snow, spring bear maybe the best its been in awhile (bears out sooner).

I'll spring hunt Missouri and Kansas this year. Between me, my wife, my hunting partner, and our NWTF Chapters Wounded Warrior hunt, I hope to kill and/ or video 10+ birds. It should be a good spring!!

Big hunt for this year is a trip to Argentina for red stag and water buffalo. I will also spring turkey hunt and of course a little shed hunting, but the Argentina trip really has my attention.
