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 Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
