May is here and things are cranking up...quickly! Is fishing opener really next weekend? Yep. Guess it's time to shift gears and get ready to run on fumes for another summer in the BLA. Nothing like coming into the "busy" season with a turkey hangover. If you don't know what I mean by that, you will first need to become a turkey hunter. And if you are not currently a turkey hunter, it's not too late to get in on the spring thing!

Check out availability on licenses ( www.dnr.state.mn.us ) and get your rear in gear to the nearest ELS machine and buy your tag. Kids hunt for nearly nothing! My daughter Elizabeth bagged her tom on Wednesday afternoon with a crossbow, what a "field trip" that was!

Now I need to get Alex, Mac and maybe Shelley an opportunity. And then there's the rest of the "list"!

Oh, yeah it's fishing season! And by the time you read this, I'll have already had my first guide trip of the season and I am not 100 percent prepared for that...yet! Can you say burning the candle? It's the story of my life and it's the story of so many other people's lives too. I guess it's just the way it is.

What about the Minnesota Wild? I'm sure there will be some late night battles with the Blackhawks that will have to be watched. My mind is starting to spin as fast as the rotors on the Chinook that we went up in the other day thanks to the fine folks at the ESGR (Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve).

I guess it's time to go spool some line on the reels, pin down a couple of turkey fans, and try to get my life in order!

Have a Wild, crappie weekend you turkeys!
