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.

      Try Shamrock Marina or Gruben's Marina. Both are fairly close to the Trout Lake Portage. Cliff

      My Lab had ACL surgery about 4 years ago on one back leg. 6 months later had to do the other leg! She has not been the same since! Very stiff in both back legs and basically unable to hunt since the surgery. I would ask your vet about the chances of your dog having the same results and also about the chance of it needing an operation on the other leg soon after! My vet told me that the chances of the other legs ACL tearing would be very high after doing one leg. Cliff

      As long as we're talking about trout lake, can someone suggest a boat rental location for a summer trip into TL?  Would need 3 fishing boats for a 4 day trip in early june.  Thanks.   Matt

      I have not fished there, but I drive by it everyday and they have been pulling fish-houses with pickups for at least a couple week now off the East end anyways.  Like I said I haven't been out there personally, so I don't know how much ice there is, but on 2 other area lakes I had 16-17" last weekend.

      Well, I went out Friday afternoon/evening from the beach access in Glenwood.  I measured 17" of ice.  Fishing was not good.  Never even marked a fish.  Hope others had good luck, there is a ton of houses out again this year.  Someone ought to be catching them!
