Rochester Game Refuge - Early Goose

6 posts in this topic

So the refuge is legal for early goose. Other than a 2 bag and 100yds from water, any other restrictions apply? City limits legal? Please enlighten if you know more.

Thanks, Coot

That website is helpful, however, the map pertains to a new proposition for land. Can we assume the refuge outside of city limits is fair game?

I guess that is what I am assuming...I don't know the refuge boundaries very well. Your best bet would be to call the DNR directly. I have never goose hunted around Rochester...I have always thought it would be too tough to find fields since all of the guides have them locked up. Maybe this would open some doors for the average joe. smile.gif Maybe I should give it a shot this year!

I won't be in the refuge, but if you get a chance, send them east, I'll be waiting.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
