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.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
