Do you have any openings in marketing or sales at your company? I graduate at the end of this school year, want to live in the Fergus area, and would be willing to join you on these lunch break hunts...

Let me know,

ps- here is a pic of our take (2 man) for opening day here (23 doves)...got 32 the next day for 3 guys. Some great eating! Smear on some chopped garlic, wrap in bacon, and throw 'em on a hot grill! Goes great with Mich. Golden Light.

great shootin. what do you hunt over or around? I have noticed many birds sitting on power lines over corn fields.

we do a little of both, but mostly waiting along power lines or a row of pine trees with dead ones mixed in. If the lines are adjacent to sunflower fields or poor-growth cornfields you are usually money. We walk some of the corn as well and can usually jump some that way but nothing beats a decoying shot--lot higher shooting percentage when they are decoying.

Finding concentrations of birds is the tough part, but once you do you are in for a treat. Usually if I see 5 or more on a powerline I know it is a worthwhile place to hunt because the field will likely be loaded with them.

Good luck.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
