I'm new to hunting, first trip is tomorrow morning. Where can you go in Lake Elmo? do you just go to the Washington Co park?

rattlemup,

Did you manage to get pretty close to Seneca's land? Anywhere else around Glencoe, Brownton, Hutch, Biscay can be tough (too much refuge) otherwise. Do you hunt late season?

yeah we hunt land anywhere from across the gravel road from the lagoons behing senaca to basically a lot of fields in the surrounding area. You would think they would be hard to decoy but with a good set up, flagging and good calling they'll come in. We shot these 1/2 mile south of senaca. and this is just the start of it. can't wait for the migration to kick in.

Freelance hunted North Dakota last weekend: no guide, no leased land, no pay to hunt . . . . no problem shooting drake mallards.

PICS FROM SATURDAY NIGHTS HUNT in North Dakota. MY PUPS FIRST REAL DUCK HUNT. 5 GUYS 25 GREEN HEADS.

As they say in ND. "He with the most ROBO DUCKS Wins"

We were done with 45 minutes of shooting time left, thats when the flocks of 50 and 100+ started coming into the decoys. Turned the ROBOS off and THe group on the other side of the field started to get shooting.

On the way home checked my slough in MN and it was full of Ringnecks, so good shooting to be had till freeze out now.

      That was a long push from 1st to 2nd! My brothers first car was a 72 Plymouth Valiant with 3 on the tree.  I went for the 74 Valiant that automatic.  I bought it with $450 of my first real paycheck dollars earned de-tasseling corn for Top Farm Hybrids by Cokato.  The rest of that first check was for my first deer shoulder mount; a “nice” 8 pointer shot IN the Pine River.    Before my driving years we were all over on our pedal bikes from our HQ on the border of Brooklyn Park/Brooklyn Center.  It was the edge of potato field country.  The only real development between there and Champlain was the Tom Thumb on 81st and Humboldt. Midnight trips to Victory Memorial drive to pick crawlers to drown in the river from the Camden bridge to the Coon Rapids Dam.  In Shingle Creek from Camden to Palmer Lake.  When season opened we trapped the creek from Palmer Lake to 81st Avenue.  Lazaroff’s Farm was a good spot.  Nobody worried or got upset about our travels.  We didn’t steal things or vandalize anything and would stop and chat or help with anyone who needed it.   Once we got the cabin south of Pine River, on the river, there were tons of soaked tennis shoes and jeans wades and walks up and down the river between Hwy 371 and The Whitefish Chain.  Mostly Potlatch land that we were free to roam for grouse, snowshoes, ducks and deer.  Heaven in the eyes of a 12 year old boy.   All of that is only available to me in my memories now.  And I still smile when I think of it.   Thanks for the thread @IceHawk

      Oh yes. And Flyte was a big draw as well. Got a break from  police chief Weere's for doing donuts in parking lot. I grew up on mink farm in EV. Learned to drive a 3 on the tree at age 12. I also remember the 18% interest rates in early 80s. That's what finally finished off our mink farming. But we actually made money in a savings account then.
    • SkunkedAgain
      Yeah, but was it going to be a sweet ZZ Top bandana like Tommy's with an Eliminator hat to boot?
    • parkhopper99
      First thing that Im going to do once quarantine ends is definitely fishing in Lake Riley. I just miss going out with my family to do some outdoor activities. Its about time my kids learn how to fish and wear those national park hats that I bought for them last month.

      I remember the rides to the lakes in the old station wagon with the seats that faced each other and no seat belts.  I remember finally getting my watercraft permit when I was 11 which meant I could take the 14’ aluminum boat with the old 9.9 Johnson on it out by myself. And then finally getting to go out by myself and dragging the anchor all the way back to the cabin because I forgot to pull it up. I don’t know why I couldn’t figured out why I couldn’t get any speed.  I remember riding the board ski behind that same boat. No one believes me but all it was just a half sheet of 1/2” plywood with a 2x4 on the front and a rope for a handle. Then another rope tied to the boat. We had 2 of these. The fancier one had a 1/2” X1/2” board down the middle to make it more stable.  I also remember getting my firearm safety which meant I could go out to the woods alone with my .22. I’d tie the gun case to the side of my bike and ride down to the river and spend all day in the woods and the only rule was to be home by supper.

      For fishing lately I’ve been watching mostly Muskie videos. I’ve also been known to watch Jason Mitchell.  For hunting I watch the hunting public and the hunting beast. Both are great and work hard for what they get. I also like the DIY sportsman and in the fall will watch chasing November. Chasing November is much more commercialized that the others.

      Grew up on a farm. Small building on left pic was a smoke house. Dad (or Pa as we knew him) raised hogs. Bro & I would sneak in the smoker and eat the small knife cut strips of un-done bacon, we both loved. During summer family would go to Stewart lake with cane poles to catch bull heads. Biggest catch was 186 and was considered as great Food. Smaller tractors were hand crank start, didn’t have batteries. At dinner (now Aka lunch) we listened to a WCCO Cedric Adam’s for grain prices. When Corn & Beans went up a nickel per bushel meant next 3 days of hard sweat labor shoveling grain out of granary (building in pic 2) into the double clutch shift truck to go to market. In 1950, dad decided to winter in Florida, sold all livestock, pack 10 kid in a station wagon and headed south on a 6 day trip. At gas stations going threw Ala. and Ga. boys used the bathroom with the “Colored" sign above the door. Being from MN we had no clue about southern segregation. My friend's dad hobby was fixing cathode ray tube TV's where I spent countless hours with him learning electronics. In ’59 I brought our first family TV home which I actually fixed. The countless hours paid off with working 40 years at Control Data. In late ’76 early ’77 as a hobby, built a self contained PC computer before the Apple II came out. Almost got me fired as I was a Test Engineering manager and not in development. A few things I haven’t done. Got sober in 1977. Haven’t tasted a wine cooler, no clue what Light Beer or craft beer tastes like and have no desire to find out. All this stuff was invented after I quit drinking. During the day my favorites were Oly beer, IW Harper bourbon and any cheap Gin.

      Times are crazy, but I am thankful. 😊   I am blessed.  This was a beautiful evening last summer.  I am in Good hands.  I have a Hope and a Future.  Hoping to hit the shore of the Missi this evening for a “therapy” session with the kids and hopefully the suckers will be running.  I’ll keep ya’ll posted.  Stay safe, friends.
