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.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
