If you are looking for LAND to hunt as in private property- good luck. I've asked many, many land owners in the southern part of that county with NO luck at all. There are a few public WMA's in the area (hastings) and a number in western Scott County. None of them are really good as far as the duck hunting, and any lake/pond will likely be VERY crowded. Your best bet is to get as far from the cities as possible, and get on a lake that is hard to access (canoe access only). Less pressure= more birds. I hunted south of the cities a long ways-on hard to access small lakes, and it is still a zoo. I'm headed up north this weekend to get away from the crowds. Good luck!

If you do ever come up with anything- shoot me an email at jparrucci@yahoo.com. I have a 17ft canoe that is great for ponds/small lakes, and am always looking for another hunting partner in the area.

No, I would stay down by the metro area. I think there are more ducks down there.

Try pleasant lake in between jordan and new prague.

That is all I will tell you besides the woodies are thick as poop down there.

Good luck

I'd paddle or motor South of St Paul Park on the river, PENTIFUL little fingers off the river by Grey Cloud Island would offer a good set up.I have only hunted this area when every thing else is locked up!

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
