SW metro hunting land

2 posts in this topic

I would like to find some land within a 30 or 45 minute drive of the Eden Prairie area for bowhunting this year. I've checked out some of the WMA land in this area, but it doesn't look too promising... I'm willing to rent hunting rights from a landowner ( if it's reasonable ) as one of the things I would like to avoid is pressure from other hunters, etc. Up until this point, all my bowhunting has been done in north central WI, but with the price of an out of state license, combined with the inconvenience of driving that far, i would like to find something within a reasonable distance to my home. Anyone have any suggestions as to a good way to go about this? Anybody know anyone out in this area with some huntable land that's willing? Again, this is only for bow hunting in the fall. Thanks for any suggestions.

Welcome rws77,

If you haven't already, look into the MN river areas near Carver, Jordan, or Shakopee.

Also might try to offer to help with some work on the farms to the West or South of you.

The hunting may not resemble the NW Wisconsin hunting you are used to, but heck their will be a few deer out there.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
