Unusual Week-Need some help

9 posts in this topic

I actually have this week off of work; I thought I would run out this morning and check Sherburne National Forest. Wow, what a waste of time. The Fed's have closed Long Pool to any and all boat traffic - there is NO water except for a stream.

I then checked out some local pot holes without any luck. Seems this years drought has been worse then what I thought.

So, does anyone have any other ideas of where to go this week? I live in Saint Paul but will drive up to an hour+. Any help will be great. I prefer to walk-in but have a canoe, boat, 100 decoys and five spinner style decoys.

the river bottoms from shakopee through jordan have tons backwaters. J've never hunted any but have seen alot of ducks and geese back there during the winter snowmobiling. alot of them you will need a boat but a few you could walk in.

I went just north of Jordon south of shokopee and it was tough walking. The river was about 4-5 feet high so just a little too deep for me walking. But there was birds.

I've been thinking about scouting the Jordan river bottom area for places to duck hunt, if anybody has interest in doing the same or getting together to hunt that area let me know. I usually go to Little Falls or Hastings and was looking for something closer to home.

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
