Anyone Hunt N.E. Iowa for Pheasants??

Recommended Posts

I grew up in Ne Iowa and was wondering if anyone still heads back for the Pheasant season?

Where abouts? I am from Waukon originally.... we head down around Cascade for a weekend hunt. More getting together than shooting birds. There are years we wonder why we even bring the shotguns. Have thought about heading down around Mason City / Clear Lake area for day hunt, but two kids under 6 makes a day trip a little difficult.

Interested in where you're from and where you are thinking about heading....I have thought about chasing grouse on the ridges along the upper Iowa, but those are some seriously scarey ridges to think about scrambling up with a gun

Picks., I'm from New Hampton. Grew up there. My dad has a bunch of decent hunting land. I try to get down there often during the pheasant season. My kids are in the same age range also. So I try to make it a weekend if I can.

Haven't been for at least 8-10 years now... We really used to stomp down the Sumner Tripoli area pretty hard! Not sure what it's like down there any more... may have to buy a license and try it again. It is easily a day trip from the twin sillies.

Good luck!

Ken

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
