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.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.
