Geese?

11 posts in this topic

Early goose hunting is approaching just wondering if anyone will be hunting in the area? I will be hunting and cant wait to be sitting in my blind gun in hand calling in some big ole honkers.

I'll be hunting and it seems like there are once again plenty of geese in the area. I've got to get out and see which fields they are using though. It's always nice to have permission for a few different areas because they seem to change their patterns some year to year.

I will also be hunting. My field doesn't have the amount of traffic it usually does but that will all change on the first when the geese get scared off everywere else.

Were do all of you guys hunt?

Good luck.

IceHawk, you did learn to share in grade school right? wink.gif

I'll be up in the Alexandria area this coming weekend. We typically target grain fields that have recently been cut...but with it being so dry this year, not sure what the plan will be.

Good Luck!

I spent most of Sunday driving around West of Fergus Falls checking the 1000 of acers we have access to hunt and there are not many Geese around. Even checked out the ponds and river in Fergus for numbers and not many geese to be found.

They seemed to be really spread out. Anybody else out this way spotting geese?

I recently just moved up to st.cloud from mankato and have no idea were to get a good shoot. Is there any public land that may have geese flying over. I have never felt this way not knowing were to hunt. Or if you need an extra caller in the group im pretty good at getting those giant honkers to put there feet down! Any help would be appreciated. Its just to much money to be driveing back and forth to mankato on the weekends. Thanks Swampbuster

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
