7 posts in this topic

has any of you guys hunted the big water, I typically hunt it opening day of deer season not hardly any one out their. but the last couple of years it was way to nice and warm to hunt it besides not many ducks . I hunted deer those years and was wondering if anyone gave it a try

I know a guy that hunted it a couple years back during ice up and couldn't keep the goldeneyes out of the dekes...

Might hunt it this year but we'll have to see. Last year was horrid for divers in my areas but I did manage my first canvasback ever--man did it taste good! Best duck I've ever had.

hey sartell angler yea a couple years back maybe three it was almost impossible not to get a bill or goldeneye they were all over it was a blast 12 gauge style . I also (then) shot a can the last day of season. it was 25 years since the last one. I'm hoping for cold wheather early that lake can be awsome!

Years ago used to hunt right by the public access in Wahkon Bay, good shooting, haven't done it in years and not sure if you even could...I think you cold probably hunt out on them islands if you have access.

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
