grouse hunting

4 posts in this topic

i'm going up on thursday to do some fishing and was thinking of putting in the shotgun. Is there a lot of state land to hunt around baudette or would i be wasting my time. with the # up this year it should be good just wondering if i would be able to find spots to hunt.

Re: Public Land

The two largest state forests in Minnesota are located just south of Baudette, several hundred thousand acres in total. That's the good news the better news is the bird count is up this year. Bring your shotgun and good luck.

Nitebite,

I had the same idea, We spent so much time on the water never had the time to drive south of Baudette to hit the state forest. If you can get your fish right away you can probably find some time to hunt. Good Luck!

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
