duck hunting around the walker area

4 posts in this topic

just incase bow hunting this weekend doesn't pan out i was just wondering if someone could guide me to a lake that would be decent for some ducks i have a boat with a trolling motor so it couldn't be a huge lake. any info would be great otherwise i guess its either bow hunting or grouse. I haven't seen this woods before its my buddies grandparent cabin so hopefully there will be some nice deer otherwise ducks are my second choice.

Not sure exactly where this is again...it's been probably about 18 years or so since I have hunted this lake...

Hart (or heart) lake northwest of Walker. All I remember is we headed north on 371, and for some reason I think we turned on 200 toward laporte. Stream comes into it and out of it, and there is some tall bullrush too..

Also, if you are willing to travel a little bit from walker is Big Rice lake on HWY 6 south of remer. Here, though, you cannot use anything motorized. Oars or paddles here, but lots of places to set up and pull a boat in on.

Hopefully with the colder weather there will be more ducks around. I have not hunted for ducks for about 10 years or so now, just because there are not enough ducks around to make it worth my time. But..I am a little further south and in pothole areas that local ducks seem to use more, so when they fly out, not much more comes in...

Rattlem,

You've got mail. BTW, my suggestion should fit your requirements. It's a small lake.

Whenever I want to find a lake with birds, I simply just gas in my truck and drive around til I find them. Look at maps and take numerous stops to glass and walk into other areas where you can't drive, the results are magical!

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.
