Game Farms North Metro

Recommended Posts

nolte

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).

"hooks"

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.

      no live ones that I know of just frozen ones. I heard the run started good than the rain came and dirty the river and moved em back out into the lake.

      Brian, Under-bite = whitefish? I have not 'bled' my fish. What's your basic process? Thank you.
    • BrianF
      The size and color says 'whitefish', but the only way to tell for sure is if it had an under-bite to it's jaw - and that just isn't something this photo allows us to see very clearly.  In any case, nice fish!  Nice photo! Pat, question for you...ever 'bleed' your fish on the ice before bringing them in to fillet?  Make a world of difference in both the fillets you get and the mess the fish makes when cutting them up.  Maybe you bled this one in a different way from how I do it though.

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early. 
    • eyeguy 54
      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...
