Snow Geese

13 posts in this topic

Just wondering if it's worth hunting snow geese in MN anywhere near Crookston or if the majority of hunters just heads to ND. I am planning on going to school there next fall and plan to come check out the campus and town.

I figure if I do it sometime in mid-late March I could possibly get a little hunting in. I do have one possible connection but I think he hunts mainly in ND. Any info appreciated.

nah, no snows close by.

When ya get to Crox, just blow thru town that evening at about 60mph and you'll get to meet Wiskers. blush.gif

Gotta agree with the other guys, not much for snows.

A few years back when I was attending NDSU, I would see them quite often in fields along HWY 75 between Crookston & Fargo. Its been a few years though.

Hey we dont get snows but we get the honkers in the fall. And access too land isn't too difficult if you can find the farm. You'll like the school.

Yeah I've heard good reports about the duck/goose hunting in the fall. I'm glad to hear there's access possible too. I will be hunting birds as much as possible and hope to meet some fellow hunters. Otherwise I'm going to have to sell all my floating dekes to buy some full bodies blush.gif I'm just hoping there's no culture shock leaving all the water and trees for fields!

Don't sell your floaters. There is lots of water, public land, public access around the Mentor/Erskine/McIntosh area. You also have Thief Lake to the north too.

Like I said before, We moved to Crookston from Frostbite Falls about 14 years ago. Things are different. Different mill stink.

Well that's good because I really didn't want to sell my floaters. Guess I'll just have sell a kidney or something to add a bunch of full bodies to my collection blush.gif

Mike L,

Our mill stinks? smirk.gif

Yeah I plan to get my non-res ND license so I can do some waterfowling over there too. Also wouldn't mind getting into some pheasants. Reading your profile sounds like we would get along great, although my partying is pretty non-existant Sept-Nov because those birds don't seem to like to sleep in grin.gif Maybe we'll have to hook up for a hunt once I'm over there.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
