Duck hunting question

4 posts in this topic

I am heading up to the Detroit Lakes area the weekend of duck opener to do a little fishing and help take the boat lift and dock out of Big Cormorant for my grandpa. I have been pondering doing some hunting as well (Saturday and Sunday morning) but don’t know if it would be worth my time if there isn’t a lot of public land to hunt. Is anyone familiar with the area around Big Cormorant lake to suggest any ideas on where to hunt (or if it’s even worth my time, and if so, more specific WMAs, etc)? Thanks for any help!

there are plenty of WPAs around there. Look up on a PRIM map or the public hunting land map for the North at available at your local DNR office. You'll just have to do some scouting and see which ones fit the bill for your style of hunting.

I agree -- there are plenty of little spots to try. Just remember that other hunters will be out as well. It would be best to find a spot and be there early.

Thanks for the help. I stopped by a local map store Saturday and found some nice PRIM maps that should help me out. Should be an interesting weekend, hopefully it cools down a bit.

      Planning on bringing out the new boat this weekend, I will do my best at the launch to speed up process, but hopefully some slack is cut on account it is a new boat..brand new boat.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.
