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!

There are lots of grouse hunting opportunities around duluth area. Canosia wildlife management area isnt far, Boulder lake management area is good. taft, and off the Munger shaw road past the cloquet river, there is lots of county land. There is no shortage of grouse hunting in Northern minnesota

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.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
