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.

      I believe it is the 49 bridge just a little south of there. Lots of ice chunks coming down.

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
