Hunting Whitewater

Recommended Posts

Duncan7709

I have never hunted whitewater but fished there many times. Is the only place to hunt ducks the Dorer Pools? To hunt the Dorer Pools do you need a boat? What is the aproximate depth of the Dorer Pools?

I'll be hunting around Altura and Elba this weekend. Good hunting, but you'll need to find landowner permission and that can be a bit tough. I believe the Dorer pools are around the whitewater refuge (not sure) and there's a lot of good hunting there. Not sure on depths. Sorry

You can hunt the Dorer Pools area on foot if you walk out on the dikes. The cannals around the dikes can be too deep to wade with chest waders. The big pools aren't as deep but the bottom is pretty soft. A canoe or kayak works nice out there. Jump shooting from a canoe works well sometimes.

Some people also float down the river or just setup along the river. The current is pretty strong through there so be careful if you try to cross.

This is a good spot for early season wood ducks.

The pools are between Beaver and Weaver along county road 74. The pools closest to Beaver are refuge. The Dorer pools are along the east side of 74. There are several parking lots with access to the dikes and water. Watch for the Open for Public Hunting signs.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
