Goose City!

7 posts in this topic

I'd never been to Rochester before until my girlfriend started PT school there this fall. This morning I was driving home north on 52 and all I can say is WOW, there were geese everywhere. They were on both sides of the highway as far back in the corn fields as I could see and the sky was full of them too! I kept waiting to see some dropping out of the sky but didn't see or hear anyone shooting. Why is that?? To sum it up guess I'm just jealous of the number of geese you have in this area. Good luck to all hunting them.

Tippman,

I moved up to Oronoco and was sick of seeing them flying over so I finally got off my butt and asked permission to hunt the field behind my house. Guy was perfectly fine with it. Since it is by some houses, I introduced myself to the closest ones and explained what I would be doing and that the 500 foot minumum distance would be followed.

Here are the results

Gotta eat some since I got one Wed night also and now I have my posession limit in the freezer. Maybe give some to my buddy to smoke.

So many geese passed/missed also. First time out in 9 years but the convenience of hunting right behind my house was just too much to pass up.

You like my real hardwoods camo for hunting in the corn field? I should probably go get some different stuff.

Hey Tippman...I know that this is a bit off topic, but I was wondering if you could tell me more about your girlfriends PT school (at the clinic I assume). I plan on going back to school shortly and PT is what I was leaning towards. Please send me an email to chaddjurg@hotmail.com

Thanks,

Chad

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      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.
