Game Farms North Metro

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys

I live in Coon Rapids and was wondering if you guys knew of any game farms that are located on the North side of the Metro. I've got a 3.5 mo old pointing lab and want to get him on a few birds here shortly. I have seen there is one in Elk River called Pheasant Dreams but don't know of any others. I would like to use Chukars or Quail to start with. I just want to walk him around and find a few birds with no gun. Left over scratch birds would work too it they are around.

I have had a few pigeons out for him when I have been up to the cabin but not down here.

Also if anyone knew the best place to buy a few game birds for training would be great.

Thanks guys

We run a game farm and shooting preserve. We are located a couple hours north of you. For reference purposes,we are 1 hour west of Little Falls. We would have chukars that you could purchase. Remember, that you can not be in the field with your dog except at a shooting preserve or have a training permit, which is free from the dnr, until after July. If you are interested email us at: ahhc@midwestinfo.net

These are a little out the metro, but not a bad drive. There is Wings North in Hinkley and RockyBay kennel and hunt club in Rock Creek. There is also one in Ogilvie ( I believe it is Pheasants Ridge).

Rum River north of Zimmerman is where we have gone for years. He normally has pheasants and chukkars, not sure about quail. There is a game bird farm (not a shooting preserve on 169 north of Elk River and Zimmerman that sells birds as well, but the name escapes me right now.

I have used Gold Meadows in Cold Springs. If you tell them what you are doing, ie training new dog, they are very good of setting you up to help with your dog. They have a web site and are very willing to answer your questions about how to train your dog.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
