Public Hunting in SE MN

3 posts in this topic

Hello everybody I am just wondering if there is any decent public hunting lands for waterfowl in SE MN or around Mississippi. I am looking for places where you dont have to have a boat. Any Help would be useful. Thanks

There isnt that much public land in SE Minnesota that is anything for ducks. Majority of the public land is wooded; however, there are many places on the Mississippi River that have good duck hunting if you are willing to put in a hike. One place is the Reno river bottoms south of Brownsville. There is a dike that runs across the river to WI and south of this dike is a maze of backwater, potholes, and sloughs. I have had some very good shoots down there. You need to get yourself an Upper Miss refuge map to see where the public land is (majority of the river) and where you may be able to walk into. The Reno bottoms would be a good bet though.

I know the spot MNPurple is talking about. I turkey hunt that area every year.

Depending on the water level, you may want to bring in a canoe or kayak to get back in there.

      Not sure if some mentioned Sierra Trading Post. I buy my Costa's there and have always paid right around $50.00 for them.  Sign up for email and get a discount flyer, they always are having a sale and free shipping etc.

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.

      Got a Abu Garcia veritas medium heavy 7 foot rod paired with a revo sx 7:1 I believe ratio. Will this be a good spinner bait rod? I might play with some bigger bass jigs or 3/8 jig heads with swim tails. I have 2 other rods 7 foot mediums, one for cranks moderate fast action with Revo winch,  and the other all around use a veritas with revo s 6:4 also. tired of having to retie all the time. Should this work? I don't do the big football jig things much. and have spinning rods for wacky and small jigs. Just trying to get a better system worked out Thanks guys. Lots of help on here.

      Yes, good report!   I travelled 210 from Brainerd to Duluth and see the ice is getting dark but has only pulled away from shore in a few areas.  I didn't see anyone fishing but did see a few auger piles on the ice.  The piles suggested maybe 10-12 inches of ice.  It'll go soon.   One thing for sure is the stores are DONE with the ice season.  I picked up some custom rods from Northlander and want to put reels on em for this weekend but can't find any in lines anywhere!  Called around too.  Same story - all packed away to get the summer stuff out.
