It is a hard to be able to find fields to hunt in early season. Most of the fields are not cleared yet, and if they are, people already have them locked up. From the way that i look at it, you have to pay to get what you want.

Get out and beat on some doors, expect a few refusals, but all it takes is one yes. Next year start earlier, kind of tough finding a spot not taken a week before the season starts. Also, keep scouting during the early weeks of the season, as the farmers start chopping corn, the geese will start using them, and it might be easier to get permission.

Black is right. Its not going to happen over night. Use the time that you have in the offseason to find them fields. And like he said, once crop comes out, watch all fields aroung it, and hit them hard with the farmers that are running them. Make sure you honor their fields as well, to help yourself out in the long run for years down the road.

      If the weather cooperates BC and I are planning on getting out on the North Shore this weekend.   With Mcquade and Two Harbors the only options I'm sure things will be tight till the Bay opens up and the South Shore a shorter run.  Be efficient and patient at the landings.  I lot of you know this but I'll repeat, when trolling in a congested area troll with the flow.  We'll be anywhere from on top to 20" down, just have to see what happens.  Lets see how many pink sticks I can manage to lose in one day.

      Definitely one you must of caught early; probably about the time I asked you if you wanted some sunscreen. Nice fish, but man did you pay the price. Good luck with your sunburn man.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time
