Ducks

I'm going to be on the lake this weekend and was wondering if there are any good duck hunting spots on Kabetogema. I got talked into helping out with a camping trip and it's taking me away from my local ducks. Was wondering if they came through Kabetogama at all so I could get out in the mornings. Thanks.

Kab is off limits for Duck Hunting. Used to be pretty good duck hunting though smile.gif

Voyageurs National Park has taken over.

mwktrapper,
There is good ducking hunting NEAR Kab...Black Bay on Rainy Lake is open, and the Rat Root River/Lake which is about 10 miles north is excellent...

But like Rick said, there isn't hunting on Kabetogama.

I believe you can hunt in tom cod bay, I know you can hunt on the ash river, and the ash river end of sullivan's bay also you can hunt on the canadian side of namakan lake. good luck

It would be nice if we could...but NO you can't hunt in Tom Cod bay or Sullivan's Bay, both are with in the boundary of Voyageurs National Park....up river in the Ash river you could probably hunt, but the only ducks will be several locals & and i would doubt the anything would fly-in on you...
Ash River has 75+ homes and locals who sometimes are moving up & down the river...it just wouldn't be a spot I'd like to hunt.
The Canadian side of Rainy Lake or Namakan is a Great option...more costs associated, but can be good hunting.

kab kid is right about hunting in tom cod bay I checked a map on the park boarders, but as for about 1/3 of sullivans bay is open to hunting. Also I wasn't saying to hunt off of the dock of sunset resort and shoot at the boats going by, but go up river. There is a few nice creeks that come into the river and should produce a few birds. Just After ash trail lodge there are not many cabins and very few boats.

I was up Namakan end of last week and the weekend (Oct. 6-10). After the front that moved through Friday all day, I saw a couple of flights of new birds riding the wind. I would not say there were any large rafts anywhere yet though. Seemed as if the lake was turning over (Sand Point and Crane).

Has anyone up there been seeing any big rafts of ducks?

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
