Shotgun Deer Season around Owatonna

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys, i'm looking for some ideas for finding a location to hunt shotgun deer this year. I moved up from Iowa a couple years ago and haven't had any luck. I live in Owatonna and am pretty new to the sport. All the people I know with land either have it spoken for already or don't allow anyone to hunt it. Thanks for any help!

I dont live in this area but I do know that just west of Faribault by Scheels lake and Roberds lake that there are numerous locations that are state owned and open to hunting and do have some deer. I have turkey hunted these spots and have seen a fair amount of deer. Just drive west of Faribault around the lakes and you should see some state land. Rosie's wildlife acres is a state owned piece and its pretty wooded and has turkey and deer. If you are interested in this area, shoot me an e-mail and I will reply with my phone number and we can diascuss the area.

      The ice is fine. I have a lot of standing water because my house is dark color. Come up and enjoy this weather. Ice is 24-30".a little snow left out on ice.

      Nick, you did a great job finding good fish for everyone.  Wished I woulda brought at least one rod and my flasher for the short time I was there.  But it was good to meet y'all face to face.   I got a hankering for some pannies now.  Might have to look for some tomorrow.

        I had the same experience today. Tons of little gills and very few big ones pike were not going on anything on tip ups today though. Wasn't fishing your area but figured I'd chime in. I had anywhere from 17-29 inches of ice with some water on top ice is great yet.

      Still plenty of good ice on Bartlett Lake today. 16" where I was at. No standing water on the ice yet. The shorelines were in good shape, too. Too bad it will probably all be trash by Tuesday.   The bluegill were biting well this morning, but for every decent sunny I had to throw back about eight potato chips.   The Northern were slamming tip-ups baited with shiners. Too bad for me I brought suckers. I caught a couple Northern, and a 16" largemouth as well. I would have liked to get out to the airport lake tomorrow morning (after a trip across the river to get some shiners  ), but I have other things to do. The backwaters around Winona will just have to wait until next December.
