Early Goose near Duluth/Superior

5 posts in this topic

Well, the early goose season is just around the cornering and I am wondering if anyone ever hunts geese near Duluth/Superior or if anyone knows where some geese have been hanging out? I am very interested in finding someone to hunt with. I have about a dozen mag. shells and big foot decoys to contribute if someone wouldn't mind an extra hunter.

My advise would be is to look for sod farmers close to Duluth area as there aren't too many farm fields in that area. Sod farmers hate geese and would just as soon have them gone. Also look for some rivers that contain backwaters that have wild rice in them. Geese are eating the rice right off the stems right now as I had witnessed last weekend. Try to set up on a sand bar with your shells and big foots and try to get a few floaters in the water also. Should do the trick to get them close!

Good Luck! grin.gif

Deep sinker, my hunting shack is 30 miles north of Duluth up highway 4. There is some small rice covered lakes outthere in the woods. If there are any geese in them, that is where I will be for early season. I am going to do some scouting the week before, if the geese are around we should be room for you if you would like to join us.

Thanks for the advice Finlander. I'll have to try scout the cloquet river...has anyone seen any geese around this area or know of any rice patties?

Ely-Definetely let me know if you have room as I would like to join you for a hunt up here.

      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.
