Anyone do any good near Hutchinson (Geese)?

3 posts in this topic

Hunted near glencoe in a field last sat. I saw very few birds and managed only one. Hunted over water near Hutch and got the same results on Sun. Saw more birds and got more shooting on a wildlife management area on Monday than I did on Sat and Sun hunting private lands. Curiuos if anyone had any luck near Hutch? It sure seemed like there were less birds around than previous years.

We hunted between Hutch and Dassel and saw very few birds also. We managed 2 on opening morning and nothing on Sun.

Birds seemed very decoy shy and the numbers just arent there like previous years.

Lip'em, I grew up in Litchfield and we would chase part of the Hutch flock when some of them would trickle over to Ripley and East Lake Ripley. If you are not even seeing birds than you might want to drive over and take a peek. good luck

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
