Hunting Whitewater

5 posts in this topic

I have never hunted whitewater but fished there many times. Is the only place to hunt ducks the Dorer Pools? To hunt the Dorer Pools do you need a boat? What is the aproximate depth of the Dorer Pools?

I'll be hunting around Altura and Elba this weekend. Good hunting, but you'll need to find landowner permission and that can be a bit tough. I believe the Dorer pools are around the whitewater refuge (not sure) and there's a lot of good hunting there. Not sure on depths. Sorry

You can hunt the Dorer Pools area on foot if you walk out on the dikes. The cannals around the dikes can be too deep to wade with chest waders. The big pools aren't as deep but the bottom is pretty soft. A canoe or kayak works nice out there. Jump shooting from a canoe works well sometimes.

Some people also float down the river or just setup along the river. The current is pretty strong through there so be careful if you try to cross.

This is a good spot for early season wood ducks.

The pools are between Beaver and Weaver along county road 74. The pools closest to Beaver are refuge. The Dorer pools are along the east side of 74. There are several parking lots with access to the dikes and water. Watch for the Open for Public Hunting signs.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
