Freemont WMA

9 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever hunted in this WMA? It is just West of Zimmerman. Wondering if it was worth while to do any bowhunting? Any help would be appreciated.

I hunted turkey on it.. I think thats the one. I would say yes, there was alot of sign in the area. There was not that many people in the area so you would have some free space. Be careful though in the early season - there seems to be alot of minority small game hunters that shoot at everything.

It is the sherburne wildlife refuge and there is alot of land but be sure to look up the open dates for the area you are hunting and the refuge itself........I believe it opens up soon but there are many areas that you cannot hunt on. ( It closes down during the spring and stays closed through summer I believe but I could be wrong on the summer part)......

ozzie is incorrect that this area is part of Sherburne. I know of the Freemont WMA but I never checked it out. I drove by and its almost completely surrounded by development. It could be a great spot, it could be a cluster-F. No way to know unless you get out there.

If it not part of the Sherburn Wildlife Refuge where are you talking about then???? I live right near there and although I don't study up a whole lot on the names I just have never heard of the Freemont WMA confused.gif......If it is west of Zimmerman I thought all of that is considered S.W.R just curiuos as to what you are talking about then......Thanks

The WMA is on the western edge of Zimm. Its actually inside some development. FOllow the link and you can see a map and aerial photo is you want. Its 165 acres.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
