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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
