Pheasant Hunting in Dakota/Scott County?

3 posts in this topic

This is my first year pheasant hunting and I am looking for some public land to hunt near the south metro. I live in Lakeville and would like to hunt somewhere in Dakota or Scott county if I can. I know there is a WMA just outside of Farmington but I don't know if it is any good for pheasants. Anyone know anything about it? I would appreciate any input people have. Thanks.

Call the DNR Wildlife office in Jordan... They cover those counties that you're interested in and can hook you up with plenty of public land maps and potentially some pointers on which units might be more worth your time. A buddy of mine is the asst. manager there, but we've never hunted pheasants down that way, only geese and ducks. The number to that office is 952-492-5266. They'll help you (or steer you elsewhere in the area).

Thanks for the information! I will give them a call and see what they can tell me about some public land in the area.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
