I feel your pain. Wish I had the $$$ to buy some. We used to lease about 2000 acres for dirt cheap until 8 years ago. It was sold and we were chased to public land. Its not the same, but deer camp and deer hunting is great. I am just glad to be blessed with the opportunity. Good luck to you. Hopefully you find somewhere to hunt!

Yeah I hear what you guys are saying because some of the hunting land that I will hunt on this year will be sold next spring, so no more hunting there. Im going to look hard for a good 80-200 acre junk of land in the park rapids, bemidji area to buy. I go to Bemidji State right now and have bow hunted the state land around here, and thats fine, but when rifle season comes its a joke and everyone is fighting over stands and spots, and I really don't need that, cuz when I deer hunt I don't want to see or hear another person for miles around.

I for one am from texas and although DOVE hunting is 100 times better there Deer hunting for your average joe is not you see although texas is so big most of it is privately owned. I can tell you I would have never experienced deer hunting if not for living and working in minnesota as well as duck and geese which i have just started on this year as well as pheaseant. I am glad for all the public land they have in minnesota i thoroughly enjoy it i take the advantage through its ups and downs. I try to be respectful to other hunters and be friendly and courteous.

That's why us sportsmen NEED to participate and support organizations like Pheasants Forever, MN Deer Hunter's, National Wild Turkey Federation, etc.

I helped start our local PF chapter and we have added HUNDREDS of WMA (public hunting land-FOREVER) to our county just in the past 4 years.

I alone cannot afford to buy hunting land, so I hunt where I can get permission and on state land. At least my kids will be able to do the same when they grow up.

Don't you think that by the time our grandkids,kids are old enough to hunt, that unless you own your own land there won't be any place to hunt. Every year they are passing new laws that have to do with public or state land.

I just had this discussion with a hunting partner Sunday I came to the conclusion that the land yo look at buying now will not get any less in the future. Its just that the prices around here what Iam looking at is $2,300.00 an acre that can not be tillable due to low lying and swamps. to me that is a lot!!

It won't get easier, but those organizations, like PF can help politically also.

I think I heard somewere that PF is the largest habitat lobbying organization.

HOLY SMOKES---that is an aweful lot for an acrea. It seems like they are about $800 too high, IMO

I am sorry i hit the wrong button the price per acre was $2,700.00. $192,000 for 70 acres. The thing is I am sure someone will eventually pay that. I am just not sure if it will be me!

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.

      First off I am not a waterfowl hunter, so this info is second hand.

      Here in the Morrison/E.Todd cty area, the hunt really seemed slow considering the weather conditions.  Although a few birds were shot early in morning the day seemed slow by most accounts around here.

      Good luck to all.

      Crescent and south switch have good burgers too, and I wouldn't have to drive so far.

      No internet in the field today. Had a group sky busting keeping birds out of anyone's range. Riverrat and I got buzzed by teal a few time and a pair of woodies scooted through. Should have had a shoveler and some woodies. The bugs were so bad I lost 4 pints of blood. 

      Now to the fun parts Finn was jumping woodcock son the fields on our way out. Finn did good but does not like no action. After leaving the refuge I checked my dads pond. O yeah there was a woodie sitting on the log bang!! No finn needs to do his job.

    • Lindy came along on our trip to Western MN for duck opener. The guys that came out Thursday to start scouting had a field lined up with alot of geese but they got busted off the roost early in a huge flock and didn't commit. We ended up with only 2 birds today.  She had to stay back in her crate during the hunt but got to play with a wing afterwards.
