Hunting hours

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if the shooting times are from 9-4 till next friday, or if it is only today which is the 30Th. I looked in the regulations and I was kind of confused. Any info would be appreciated Thanks.

Why do they start at 9:00am on opener?

Not only to give the ducks a fighting chance but to try too keep the duck hunters from shooting each other early in the morning...just a joke....If they opened it at sunrise on opening day the number of ducks that would be killed would be alot....and the people down south would get pissed...

I've tried it, hunting can be good, but is it seems like the ducks flood in AFTER legal shooting light. Awfully tempting...

I hunt in the evening quite a bit every year. If you are in the right spot it can be just almost as good as a morning hunt. I prefer it sometimes because your not fumbling around in the dark, tripping over everything on the walk out, setting up decoys wondering how they will actually look once the sun comes up, ect.

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
