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.

      I'd pull it off to error on the side of caution.  You can always put it back out there in the future.

      Just because an officer doesn't say have a nice day doesn't mean he's a dick.  Can you imagine all the idiots this guy has to deal with on a daily basis?  It's the same with police officers.  They also get a bad rap because they aren't super polite or "nice" to people.  They get disrespected and abused and lied to on 95% of their calls.  You probably wouldn't be the most cordial person either if you had to deal with the crap they have to.     Should they be cordial?  Yes.  Is that what they get paid to do?  No.  Don't let it bug you so much.

      What's the Ice thickness on Blue now?  I'm considering driving out tomorrow on Blue. Has anyone fished Crappies or Sunnies Mon, Tues or Weds this week?
