Grouse Near Crosslake?

9 posts in this topic

Will be in Crosslake this weekend and thought of walking for grouse after the morning walleye fishing. Does this area typically have very many birds?

Thanks

I can't think of the right habitat in Crosslake?

Too developed. Too close to spendy coffee shops for grouse.

There are plenty of Grouse around C.L., just head North and get into some State land or Potlatch and you'll find birds............and plenty of Deer ticks too!

Not sure. I know they are thick where I'll be this weekend. The Grouse that is. Maybe ticks too.

About an hour north in the Emily and Outing area on highway 6, there are many places to hunt for grouse. Lots of logging trails to walk. There should be a pickup truck at most of the trail's head though. So you will have to keep moving until you find a clear one. That is where I will be Saturday.

I checked the DNR site and see the state forest land map, but also see yellow shading for county land as well. Is the county land open to public hunting? It looks as if it's within the boundaries of the state forests

Thanks

Hey...Gas is cheaper this week, so it is easier on the pocket book to get in the truck and drive around a bit.

Good luck this weekend with the grouse. Dog is going to love it.

If you head up that way again, you should do well! I was hunting near Emily on Monday and picked up 5 out of 9 in three hours of hunting. Best day of the year, unfortunately it was 2 hours from home!

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
