11/10

Season starting to get a little bit better. Hunting Near Staples. Saturday morning two of us managed two ring necks, lots of ringers and some mallards seen just were not in the right spot. Drove around and found a lake with a good concentraion of Divers. Kicked them off the lake and they started coming back in small groups managed to get 1 Stud drake redhead and 5 ringers.

11/11

Morning managed to get five drake ringnecks many divers seen, not many mallards or geese in the area.

The ducks are definatley starting to fly, It should get better in the next week or so, hopefully their is more mallards around next weekend.

Good Luck.

Hunted north of Stillwater this weekend with my brother and one of his friends.

11/10 Lots of mallards, had a few larger flocks fly through. I shot 3, my brother 1. I should have had more in the early light but was chasing the dog too much... Weather was excellent, thick overcast and some sleet kept the birds moving late into the morning.

11/11, less ducks flying, it wasn't nearly as productive as Saturday. Few birds came to the decoys, managed to take 2 mallards.

Is f.f. Fleet Farm? If it is, I live in the neighborhood just north of those fields. It is amazing to me every year how quickly the ducks and geese find that field after the farmer cuts the corn. I love seeing and hearing all those birds flying over the house every AM & PM. I wish you were able to hunt that field but it is in Oakdale and they do not allow hunting.

Fleet Farm does not hold the ducks like the hotel ponds in St. Paul!

I think he meant Otterville, not FF.

I hunted all around Herman this weekend, some west almost to Wheaton, east to Hoffman and south almost to Morris. There were some flocks of northern mallards and EPP Canadians, but nothing compared to what it's normally like. Maybe with this cold front coming up...

Was deer hunting last weekend in FF area (this case FF means Fergus Falls) and there was a ton of geese, lots of mallards, and plenty of buffies and golden eyes. We duck hunted Sunday morn, and got some redheads, buffies, ringbill and even a couple hooded sawbills. The lakes started opening back up, but when they were closed on Friday and Sat, holy cow did they flock in the openings in the water!

I feel a bit dumb thinking F.F. was Fleet Farm and not Fergus Falls.

      I use the Clam Ice Armor--the ones for about $69.  Not great for dexterity but the warmest I have found.  Get a good muff like Cabelas sells with thinsulite and puta few hand warmers inside.  Work well and keep hands moderately dry. Or, get goretex/thinsulite mists and put a hand warmer in each one.  They slide off easily.   Haven't tried electric.

      Nope. Not even close.

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.
