5 posts in this topic

Just saw the fourth flock of Canada geese going north yesterday from my house here in Baxter. Usually I see them when I am fishing for walleyes on Mille Lacs around this time of year. The last flock I saw had around 75 geese and the rest had about the same number. I would like to know where all them geese go as there would be a great number of them if they all ended up in one location! blush.gif

I've seen about 500-600 geese in the last 2 times I've been out fishing...once on Rainy Lake and once on the river. Definitely fun to see some bigger flocks of birds again, only a little over 3 months to go!

yeah I watched a few flocks fly over while playing baseball in Sartell and again last night flying over the softball fields in Waconia...I actually counted the days in my head until opener when it happened last night and thought that this summer is going to be longer than I thought.

A lot of them end up at Oak Hammock Marsh in Manitoba to do their molting.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
