I saw a bunch of geese in Belle Plaine last night late (7:15pmish). Sit on top of the Chevy dealership and whack um! smile.gif

There is a public slough in Green Isle. I talked to a couple of guys who hunted it opening day and they got 10..that was with letting all the teal go. They did mention that there were plenty of other hunting it but theat can be expected for opening day.

Also note that those two lakes in the GI area are WPA ...meaning "No motors allowed". Just make sure your aware of that. Gaylord has Lake Titloe too.

I would plan on it vs. waiting for something to happen. If you knock one down you're going to want to get on it right away. Assuming you have waders, stuff the boat in the cattails and stand next to it (of course, it isn't bright yellow or anything?).

If you are setting out decoys your best chance should be at decoying birds, hopefully dead in decoys. A quick wade and your back in the 'blind'.

When there, you need to stick your nose into the breast feathers and take a HUGE whif... you'll be hooked.

We took the jet boat out on the river tonight in henderson looking for ducks. We had them pinned down until the river went way up. Now we might get the waders out and jump some small ponds and cricks tomorrow.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
