Pheasant Ridge Hunting Preserve ?

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone hunted at this game farm by Ogilvie? I usually don't hunt game preserves but with a new pup I need to find someplace in the north metro to get him on some birds. Any info would be great. Thanks DrJ

I've shot there twice. It's the only shooting preserve I have been to, so I can't say how it compares to others. Each time the owner/operator, Mike I think, was very nice with us. Seems the place gets busy on the weekends. A call ahead is a good idea.

another place to try is major avenue gun club out in Glencoe. They've always got birds. Also, if you go, try to talk to Brian, he's the trainer out there and tell him that Grant sent you. He'll know who I am, and he'll take great care of you and make sure that you're on birds.

      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.
