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.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
