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.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
