Well....depending on where you are located there may be a few options. You can also do a search for past posts to see what suggestions there are.

You can try to located some at game farms around the area. Sometime you have to drive to get birds. Quail or chukar would work also.

I had a contact in Roseville bu he recently pasted away.

I don't know where you live but I believe the Horse & Hunt club in Prior Lake sells pigeons for $5/bird. They also have pheasants and chukkars but I'm not sure on the pricing. There also is Oakwood Game Farm in Princeton, they only have pheasants now. I also bought some chukars out in Wadena. I believe they also sold pheasants and quail. I have their contact info if you need it.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
