SD Duck opener Pics...

9 posts in this topic

I'd bet a lot of you MN boys are chomping at the bit for next weekend!! We had our duck opener this weekend. We hunted a field loaded with ducks...only problem was we had about 1.5 inches of rain Friday night and Saturday. Carrying decoys out and back was miserable! OMG what a mess it was. It was a blast!!

Saturday we ended up with 11 wood ducks (one banded woody!) and 15 mallards plus 2 bonus honks... Notice the mud!!

Sunday was much more pleasant. Sunny and not near as muddy. Ended with 11 honks and 15 mallards.

Just rub it in why don't ya! grin.gif Just kidding Rost, looks like you guys had a great time. I am looking forward to next weekend, I finally get to go out and bust some honkers again, and maybe a few mallards mixed in with the bunch too. It should be a blast.

Take Care All and Good Luck Hunting!

Here are a few from my opening week that a couple of us got in to. I guess I wont complain if I dont have to hunt water for a while. What a BATTLE trying to pick out drakes field huntin this time of year. There was only a couple flocks that we shot more than one bird out of all week.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!

      Thanks Del, my son and some friends are coming up this weekend for water sports fun!!

      I have had very good success the past few days using my standard lindy/1/2 crawler rigs. All fish were caught in sand/rock transition areas in 16' to 24' depths. Mornings were best from 8:00am to noon. Key factors were to look for pods of fish before even dropping a line! Some fish would bite and some would not. I did not spend much time on pods that would not bite! 2 passes and I was gone if we did not get a fish! Found many fish in spots that I have not fished all summer! Dumb ones I guess! Still tasted the same though! Cliff

      I hunt these WMA's routinely. It's not as bad as they say. Most of the time you're fine but you have to be prepared to have your hunt completely ruined and be able to laugh it off and move on. The land belongs to all of us. That said, if someone actually shot at a squirrel in a tree I'm sitting in, I might be tempted to shoot back.(kidding!)  Hard to imagine that really happened! I would say 75% of the time you have these places to yourself. It helps to pick areas that are a little harder to walk into.

      I'd love to do this. I've never hunted them as we didn't have any where I'm from. Do you know if this opportunity is for a wild pheasant or a pen raised bird?
