This evenings grouse hunt.

4 posts in this topic

I made it out to canosia this afternoon. Right after the rain the grouse were out. I kicked up four in about an hour, then after that it went stale. confused.gif Still alot of foilage in the woods. Those grouse pulled a disappearing act quick. The one that I did get though had about a six inch tail fan, real nice male. Forgot how pretty they are!!

Anyhow, does anyone know how much pressure boulder lake wma gets. I was out there the other day and walked the whole trail system and saw one bird. confused.gifconfused.gif I am sure that its a good place, but I must have hit it at a wrong time.

I am still learning about the places to hunt in the duluth area. Hopefully I will have a great report for you guys after Sunday.

Hmmm, I always done well at BLMA. The trails are well traveled. Step off of the m and look for a mixed forest area with plenty of mid age aspen and you should see some

Some of those areas do get alot of trail pressure. That is particularly true of canosia, boulder, and buzz ryan. If I hunt one of those areas, I either do it first thing in the morning when I know that I am the first one through on the trails or I will venture well off the trails and hunt in the woods. If you get off the trails, it doesn't really matter. If I want to hunt trails in the afternoon, I usually venture further out of town and hit trails that are unlikely to have been covered. Good luck

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
