Grouse Hunting Near Duluth.

7 posts in this topic

I am a college student at UMD and I was just wondering if there is any good/accessible grouse hunting spots around the duluth area. I don't want to drive many miles, but I will walk many miles on trails. I know about the gunflint, but how accessible is it? How far is it from Duluth? Any information is appreciated!

Thank You and Good Hunting!

Thanks for some direction. Up in the International Falls area we can basically go anywhere on logging roads and hunt road or tail off of them because it is all county or paper mill land. But being new to the area, I liked to have a few areas that I know are safe to hunt. Are plot books $25 like they are up in the Falls?

Thanks Again,

There is lots of area within 20-30 minutes of Duluth. Get a copy of a PRIM map for Duluth. These are available through the DNR online. The Minnesota county atlas also shows alot of areas but isn't as complete. Yes, you can hunt waterfowl in canosia.

If you take rice lake road north from arrowhead road there are a lot of trails on it once you get past island lake.

      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.
