duck hunting

Was wondering if anyone has been out around the area and how the hunting has been. The few times I have been out it hasn't been real good at all. Have not seen much for numbers. Hopefully this cold snap will bring some down our way.

Last Saturday me and another guy got 11 and Sunday we got 10. Most were teal. I was surprised that we got two pintail on Saturday. I never shot one of them before. We also go a couple widgeons.

Ive seen and shot the most ducks in years so far in the Willmar area. 7 of us shot 42 on opener, and some geese! Lots of mallards, woodies, BW & GW teal, and weve also got 2 pintails! After this weather and hard northwest wind, the widgeon, gadwalls, and some early divers wont be far behind!!! Bring it! cool.gif

Some guys i know from here have been over there both opening weekend and this past weekend. Opener I guess wasn't very good at all, but this past weekend i was told was better. I am not sure about this past weekend being i haven't talked to them myself. Goodluck at marsh. It should start improving over there as the weather has gotten colder.

Sounds great I will be taking off from the cities around noon. Just plan on hunting Sat morn and maybe Sun morning as well depending on how the hunting is. I will let you guys know how I do when I get back on Sunday.

hunting was slow, but there is a few ducks in the area. Hunt all day and you'll get a limit.

Well my friend and I shot 4 birds both Saturday and Sunday. Easily should have had more, our marksmanship was not to impressive first hunt of the year though and haven't really shot since last year. Good time though. Heard a lot of shooting Sat morning but not as much Sun. Might go out again this weekend depending on how much pheasant hunting I decide I want to do.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
