we hunt all over around benson, up towards starbuck, over towards morris, and down towards appleton. there are lots of geese this year; but they have been really tough to pattern, seeming to change what fields they go to and what routes they take based on weather. basically we picked our two best fields and have been running traffic so far with lots of birds circling, and the few that have finished have gotten whacked. ive been out 4 times this season and have gotten 12 so far, with many more birds laughing at my shooting skills.

      Where are all the Duck reports from the almighty Pelican? 

      Did all this rain fill the lake back up?  I haven't driven by at all. 

      I bet the crappies and gills are growing nicely.   Soon enough.

      Yep it is the 3 S's - I just don't think a lot of people are going to be grouse hunting with a shovel - but not a bad idea.

      We've got a cabin up on Pelican and I've definitely noticed less cormorants on the lake this summer.  The state did grant the owner of Gooseberry Island a permit to kill cormorants, which was done this Spring.  I talked to a DNR officer on the lake this summer and he said they had shot almost 400 birds, I don't recall the exact numbers but it was somewhere between 350-400. 

      Thanks for the Update, I think that I did see less birds out on Edwards as well later this summer. Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :)
