public land west of Palisade

5 posts in this topic

A buddy and I are going to try the public piece of property west of 169 a couple miles on County Road 3 (just past Round Lake) this year for deer (his parents have a cabin down the road). Anyone know if that gets pounded or not? We are lucky in that we have weekdays off to hunt, but wondering if it is even worth while to try if it is out hunted during the weekend.

I was just out there yesterday grouse hunting. Or at least in very close proximity. It looks like it probably gets a ton of people deer hunting the entire area as we saw a number of temporary makeshift deer camps in the area. However, there are a mess of deer in the area, so you might get a shot off.

That area where 1 splits from 3. I do not know if other hunters are in there but I do know there are a bunch of deer around there.

You should be good to go during the week.

The 1st week is sorta crazy ,but after that it mellows out.

I have to say during the week it is fairly quiet on the weekends its really crazy that area ur talking gets hunted pretty hard all season. I have seen plenty of deer in the area. Just make sure u are on public land. I grew up in the area and most all take their deer hunting extreamly seriously. Good luck may the big buck come your way!!!

thanks for the replies. I know we've seen lots of deer in the past. I am working on putting the edges of the public land into the old GPS so we stay on course. Good luck to all and shoot straight.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
