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

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
