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.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
