Pheasant Hunting in Dakota/Scott County?

Recommended Posts

WildFan10

I am new to pheasant hunting this year. I am from the south metro and am looking for some public land to hunt in Dakota County. Does anyone know of decent spot to check out this weekend? I know there is a WMA just outside of Farmington I was thinking about hunting. Anyone know anything about this place or any other places a new hunter could try for a couple of hours? Thanks.

If you have Google Earth there is an overlay at the DNR website for all the WMA's in the state.

Wildfan...I also replied to you, but in your similar posting in the 'hunting' section... It should help.

Thanks for the information guys, I checked out your replies in the other forums and they should help. I have heard there is plenty of public land around to hunt, just need to get out there and find it. I imagine this weekend might be a bad weekend to be in the fields with all the deer hunters out?

Wait till deer season is over.

Long wait in zone 3. Take a look at the map and find zone 4 areas and hunt weekdays.

December will be good if we get a little snow.

If you want some maps just go tp the dnr sight they have allmost all of the public land maps and directions to them there maps are kind of nice they show what they are made up of grass,trees, water just study then . also look for that have corn on the edge of them or they have foodplots in them .I hunt only state land and i have had days where i have been kicking up 20 bird days.

      15-23 inches in most areas  Don’t drive through the narrows on blue headed towards little blue you will sink your truck.

      So I don't usually fish for pike often with tip ups and I'm just wondering if dead suckers work well? All of mine died literally after 1 day and it seems a shame just to toss them away, especially when they cost $6.50/dozen

      Try cross-country skiing, fat biking and more
      Winter may have gotten off to an especially cold start in 2018, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of it. For an introduction to snow sports, stop by the annual Winter Trails Day extravaganza at Fort Snelling State Park on Saturday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adults and kids can try cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, fat biking, ice fishing, quinzee (snow shelter) building and archery. Other activities will include ice harvesting, storytelling and an ice globe demonstration. Guided nature hikes will also take place every half hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between activities, visitors can enjoy hot cocoa around a crackling bonfire. Activities will be set up near the beach area. “Winter Trails Day is about helping people warm up to winter,” said Kelli Bruns, park manager at Fort Snelling State Park. “The cold weather months are more fun when you find an activity you can enjoy alone or with others.” This year, for the first time, sign-language interpreters will be on hand to help make the day’s activities more accessible to those with hearing disabilities. Stop by the registration tent for more information. Winter Trails Day is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, retail co-op REI, the U.S. Forest Service and Mississippi Park Connection. Use of skis, snowshoes, fat bikes and other equipment will be free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks and recreation areas ($7 for a one-day permit or $35 for a year-round permit). Save time, get vehicle permit in advance
      Although permits are available at the park, people attending Winter Trails Day can avoid waiting in line by getting their permit in advance. Visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit. For more information, call the park at 612-725-2724 or visit the Fort Snelling State Park Web page at www.mndnr.gov. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
