Daughters first Pheasent hunt

3 posts in this topic

I am planning on taking my ten year old with me on her first Pheasent hunt tomorrow. I live in the SW Metro. I was planing on heading west and south and hunting public hunting lands. Can anyone give me a report or point in the direction of some areas that might be productive. Thanks

Look at a map, draw lines from Worthington to Jackson to Windom to Marshall.

Hunt anywhere in that square.

Minnetonka, I have been out on public lands near Howard lake and Maple lake twice this past week including today. Only saw one person in the two days and flushed around 10 birds a day (not all roosters). Had my 7 month old lab out today and he is doing great! We got one today on one shot. Kicked up several birds while walking the dog through the heavy slough grass and could not see them until too late. If you walk with the dog in the cat tails and keep her on the outside I would bet she would get some good shooting. My .02. If you want to up the odds head to the area described above in the first response.

Good luck wink.gif

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
