goose hunting around st. cloud

4 posts in this topic

Just curious how many people hunt around the st. cloud and particulary the sartell area? I just recently moved here and thought about drivin around asking for permission, but a couple people told me its not worth trying because they seen so many people hunting the area already. anybody notice a lot of hunting pressure..? just wondering if its worth a shot.. thanks

It's always worth a shot! But there are alot of guides in that area that lease alot of the prime spots. The river is always public tho and the birds come back after feeding in the fields.

I've lived in Sartell my whole life and have some good land connections through friends and their farming relatives...it is a great place to hunt geese if you have land access, plus you can't beat a 5 minute drive from your house to where you're hunting.

I'd say just start driving around looking for fields that could hold geese and are relatively close to town--even if the corn isn't cut, etc, doesn't hurt to have some potential spots later on.

Good luck, and email me if you want to get together for a hunt sometime.

Seekingwalleye...I too am looking for goose hunting grounds...I live 4 miles south of St. Augusta, I was new to the area last October and if you're new too, maybe we could hook up and shoot some honkers?

Email me if you're interested... rhoffmanisu@hotmail.com

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
