Faribault Area

6 posts in this topic

I hunt a couple of lakes and sloughs in the Faribault, Lonsdale, New Prague area and was wondering what the forecast is going to be for this year. Work has kept me from scouting so i'm just looking for some input from maybe early goose hunters that have been on the water. Not looking for great details or places to hunt, just wondering if the numbers are up, down or the same from the past couple of years. Thank You.

I would say they is more than last year. But thats just what I see. I would go scout your spot though, some of my sloughs that I have hunted in the past are filled in with grass and really low water.

I went out and scouted some over last weekend. I saw one goose and one duck in 5 lakes/sloughs that I went to. Saw a guy and his two boys coming off one of them and he said they did not see a duck. I was on the north and west side of Hooterville. Gonna try to get out to George and Circle this week sometime and see what I can see there. Looked pretty bleak to me this past weekend though. Oh well, maybe when they start shooting wherever the ducks are some will come this way. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

I've been hunting early goose in a field just off the west end of roberds lake, and I've never seen so many ducks B4 in my life! 2nd weekend of early goose, 1 moring we probly saw 1000-1500 ducks! I'm not exhaderating either! It was unbelievable! shocked.gif Tons of geese 2! But on a regular day, probly 300-400 in an average morning.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
