Pheasant Opener - Public hunting land

10 posts in this topic

I'm relatively new to the area and I'm just wondering anybody knows of some decent public hunting land near Northfield or Faribault where I can run my dog, and maybe see a bird or two.

And if you're worried about me shooting all the birds, don't worry I'm not a very good shot!

Thanks

I've been shooting ducks in some flooded river bottom. The numbers of roosters on the hillsides in the morning are thick. They have all been pushed up do to the river banks flooding. I counted 30 birds get up out of one area on Sunday morning. Would be easy pickings if I hunted them. No dog. That is the best day of the year to sit in the bow stand anyway.

one of my favorite feilds to hunt is flooded, but the land owner says there are a ton of birds there still

land aquisition is gtting harder and harder over the years and with the pressure on the public lands through the first few weeks it's hard to get motivated to hunt till most get the buck bug and hunting pressure drops

It would be nice if Minnesota did a walk in deal like South Dakota that opens up alot of land to be hunted out there. It will probably never happen though the have alot more birds and alot fewer people.

Let me know.

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
