Duck hunting (Black bay ) Rainy Lake

4 posts in this topic

Thinking about giving it a try.

Anybody have any history or stories to share?

Just trying to get a gauge on what to expect up there!

Depending on where your at in the bay and how the hunting pressure is hunting can be fair to phenomenal. For the last two years hunting has been phenomenal for us, BUT we put many many many hours in scouting.

Techniques are the same as you would use for any other place to hunt. Look to generally more ricy secluded areas for your puddlers and main lake points for your divers. If you have the right spread and have scouted out the right spot you can shoot a combonation of both these, plus geese.

Its imperitave to know that you can only hunt in the areas marked with a yellow wildlife management sign when near skunk island. Anything on the south shore is fair game, assuming it is not private property(take a look at a plot book) and anything up into the rat root is fair game also.

Just a little hint, I would stick to places along the south shore up near and far into the rat root where the birds see very little, if any hunting pressure.

I know that these are generalizations, but if you put your time in scouting for a day or two to see where the birds are, you will have a good hunt.

Take Care and Good Hunting!!!

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
