Pheasant Hunting in Dakota/Scott County?

Recommended Posts

WildFan10

I am new to pheasant hunting this year. I am from the south metro and am looking for some public land to hunt in Dakota County. Does anyone know of decent spot to check out this weekend? I know there is a WMA just outside of Farmington I was thinking about hunting. Anyone know anything about this place or any other places a new hunter could try for a couple of hours? Thanks.

If you have Google Earth there is an overlay at the DNR website for all the WMA's in the state.

Wildfan...I also replied to you, but in your similar posting in the 'hunting' section... It should help.

Thanks for the information guys, I checked out your replies in the other forums and they should help. I have heard there is plenty of public land around to hunt, just need to get out there and find it. I imagine this weekend might be a bad weekend to be in the fields with all the deer hunters out?

Wait till deer season is over.

Long wait in zone 3. Take a look at the map and find zone 4 areas and hunt weekdays.

December will be good if we get a little snow.

If you want some maps just go tp the dnr sight they have allmost all of the public land maps and directions to them there maps are kind of nice they show what they are made up of grass,trees, water just study then . also look for that have corn on the edge of them or they have foodplots in them .I hunt only state land and i have had days where i have been kicking up 20 bird days.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
