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.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
