Marsh Lake action?

5 posts in this topic

Just curious if anyone has been on Marsh? If so, how was the hunting and were there many ducks? I'm going out in the morning and just looking for some last minute confidence. smile.gif

Sorry I didn't have any info to post but I am heading out that way this week to see my parents and do some hunting. Just wondering if you had any luck and if you saw many birds.

For a bluebird day with no wind we did pretty well. It was really slow until about 10am, 1 bluebill and one bufflehead. No mallards showed interest but there were flocks everywhere. Really high though. About 10:15 the mallards started coming back from feeding and there were a few flocks that were really looking to land in the dekes. We wound up with 5 greenheads, 1 bluebill and 1 bufflehead. I personally shot like a first timer. I should have had 2 geese and a couple more greenheads. Oh yeah, I missed the bufflehead as he went north and I missed him again when he came back south. blush.gif My buddy put him down. If I would have gotten him he'd be going on the wall.

If you go don't bail out to early. Stick it out until noon if you can. The mallards went out and back in at all times of the morning. The last two greenheads we shot at 11:45.

Thanks for the info, I never made it out on the water. In this wind I figured being in the field chasing pheasants would be more productive than chasing kayak down the shore while it is blowing away.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
