SNOW, SNOW, & MORE SNOW. Will there be Geese?

3 posts in this topic

Live north of Forest Lake, MN and was hoping to find some geese up around Rush City when go scout on Friday. It's been years since I've huted late season with this much snow. What are you guys thinking? Where would you drive on Friday morning (rivers)?

I was wondering the same thing. I remember hunting in a couple inches of snow 3 years ago, but not this much. Sure makes hiding tough unless you've got snow camo, which hasn't been a going concern for a number of years now.

I've heard that a lot of birds have left compared to years past...

I used to live north of Forest Lake.

Where I live now, SW MN, we have snow and lots of geese. Around here we take rakes and shovels and scratch a bunch of spots out of a field to make it look like a big spot that flocks have been feeding at. Then, it's field hunting as usual.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
