Willmar pheasants

6 posts in this topic

Thought I would try pheasant hunting in Mn. this year instead of the Dakotas, first time since 1964, the DNR's reports have been awful good. Has anybody been hunting around Willmar, after a little research that is the area I decided on.

bergie i live 30 miles west of Willmar and theres a TON of land round here to hunt... I personally didnt get out but everyone i talked to had alot of birds and saw bunches also... I was fishing yesterday and i saw 7 roosters in 1 spot about 100 yards from a group of hunters too! lol

There is alot of public around here but it gets beat up pretty bad too. Theres a lot of birds around but you may have some trouble getting permission on land. You could certainly have a successful hunt, but it is NOTHING like South Dakota in Willmar. Even South and west of here is WAY better. It could be fun, just dont get your expectations up too high. Good luck...

There aren't any birds around here, you better head farther west!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

If you have a good dog and aren't afraid to walk a mile or two per bird, you'll find birds. Lots of public land around here but also lots of hunters. But theres NO comparing pheasant hunting around here to SoDak!! Come Sat I will be in SoDak and our six guys will probably fill out in two hours every day - try that around here! NOT!

Thanks for the input, this is a first pheasant hunt for my new pup so it will be just him and I moseying around trying to figure things out. We will be down there during the middle of the week so I'm hoping there won't be to many hunters. This first hunt if I can shoot a couple birds over him and get him used to hunting some open country instead of grouse woods it will be a success.

I would think you could do just fine then. When are you planning on coming to the Willmar area?
