grouse hunting by Voyegeurs

5 posts in this topic

I will be fishing on Kabetogama on 26th, but I thought I would bring my shotgut. Do any of you know where a guy could do that? I hear the grouse is up this year and would like to take a day and go out.

Thanks

There are few forest roads that you can hunt from between The Gateway Store & Orr. Townline & SheepRanch have been pretty good for us over the years. Just head back into one of the forest roads, find a few walking trails & give it a try. Let me know how you do. I'm heading up the 1st full weekend in Oct.

Good luck hunting & fishing.

Get yourself either a PRIM map or the Minnesota Gazetter (sp?). They show forest roads and public hunting areas.

Just got back from there yesterday and you heard right, the grouse hunting is pretty good this year. I agree with JKing and Back Bay. Sheep Ranch road runs forever and connects with several other roads and unnamed/numbered logging trails. If your not familar with the area you should have a map to find your way around back there.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
