Anyone hunt prairie chickens in MN?

3 posts in this topic

I'm just curious about chasing some chickens this year. I see that there is a fall hunt application deadline on DNR website for the 4 day season. Is it hard to find them and get on land? What kind of sucess do hunters usually have? I've hunted them in SD but never tried it in MN.

Around Crookston when I was deer hunting this year they were every where. I was on state land but don't know if you can hunt it or not but there all up and down around valley.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

      Anyone going out for the opener this weekend? I'll be too busy trout fishing, but I'm all booked up for the month of May on the Croix

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
