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

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
