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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
