Anyone hunt Lake of the Woods for opener?

3 posts in this topic

Did anyone hunt the big lake for opener? I was wondering if there are any ducks around up there. I will be going in the morning to start the season down here.

We go up there and hunt geese mainly, but we shoot a few ducks too in the fields and whatnot. As far as the lake shore, it can get crowed, there are some good spots to hunt though. Our biggest problem has been getting the boat of the water. We have always had a strong wind blowing right into the spot where we wanted to hunt, and by stron wind I mean there were two to three footers out there. My buddy has a video of me wading out into the wild rice to see if I could pass shoot a few divers that were buzzing over. Well, needless to say I took one over the waders, and that was enough of that. I have always seen lots of ducks there though, in fact my uncle is there right now hunting ducks and geese. I will post tomorrow evening and let you know how he did.

Take Care and Good Hunting!!

We hunted it last year for a couple of days and had ducks every day. We hunted the morris point and four mile bay area...seems like everyday that we were out there the ducks were in the decoys before our guns were out. The wind and waves did make it quite tricky though. Lots of fun and can't wait to get back up there this year.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
