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.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      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!!
