where do you live Phooj? I know of some good management land that might have some Tree Rats. I also know of some private that you might be able to get on.

Henderson is south of the Twin Cities about 45 minutes and 3 miles West of 169 on HWY 19. Before you go down the hill into the Valley, there's a big WMA (Ney WMA)on the right side of the road. The Ney Environmental Center is across the road. You can only hunt the North side of the road.

The other WMA is northwest of Henderson. Turn right onto County Road 6 and go 3/4 mile out of town. Turn left on the first gravel road after you get out of town. You'll go about 1.5 miles and drop down into another valley. When you come back up the hill, Vale WMA will be on your right. There's some really deep ravines out there so be careful.

First post so excuse me if this is wrong to ask an kinda off topic question.

Are squirrels tasty? I guess that could be a matter of "taste".

Are they like rabbit?

Sorry for the stupid questions guys.

Yea similar to rabbit, though I haven't eaten one in quite a few years. I've been meaning to go after them, but every time I find a bunch I am more concerned with the deer I am chasing. smile

I think most guys make them into a stew or use the slow cooker.

No problem Phooj.

From St. Paul, if you can get your way to 494 West, cross over 35W and continue to HWY 169 South, that will take you to the directions I gave above. From 494 to HWY 19 that goes into Henderson, it will be approximately a 45 minute drive.

Take HWY 19 west 1.5 miles to the Ney WMA. It will be at the top of the hill on the right side of the road before you drop into the MN River valley.

If you continue on HWY19 into the MN River valley, you will come into Henderson. Turn right just after the Shell Gas Station onto County Road 6 and head north out of town. As soon as you get out of Henderson, you'll take the first gravel road to your left and follow this through another valley. It will be approximately 1.5 miles of gravel. Once you reach the top of the hill, there will be a parking area on the right. This will be the Vale WMA.

Hope this helps.

Just go up to any ol' farm house out in the country and thier usually pretty good about letting people shoot squirrels...and squirrels is about it. Don't ask to shoot duck or pheasant without forking over some money...LOL

Hi,

So I'm hunting squirrels this Sunday with a buddy and we don't know many good spots to go. We went last weekend but had no luck since they hid well and also jumped tree to tree.

      Drove by pleasant lake today coming home from st cloud.  99% of that lake is wide open yet 
    • CigarGuy
      Got up today. You're correct skunked. It frozen solid as far as I can see in front of me. Snowmobile tracks are running along our shoreline 🤔
    • SkunkedAgain
      Thanks for the input. I wish that were closer to the west end, as that's a bit of a hike for me but will always be an option.
    • SkunkedAgain
      From the White Eagle webcam, it looks like only the wings are iced up but the majority of Head O Lakes is open water still.   Therefore I likely won't be heading up there until the holidays.

      Darrell - thanks for the information.  I also heard some scary news about premature ice fishing on Vermilion.  A couple of guys fishing in Stuntz Bay on 2.5" of ice.  Another couple fishing in narrows close to open water.   Weather doesn't look great for making ice, and the snow cover will slow it down.  Will consider all information and use maximum safety IF I decide to try going out Wednesday.  It is a long winter so there is no rush to get out.

      JerkinLips, I normally don't post about hear say!! but I did hear from a reliable source that a couple of fishing people went through walking out from McKinley. For what that's worth, this was earlier this week.
    • smurfy
      anybody???? anything??????????
    • JerkinLips
      Heard some people were out fishing at McKinley Park today.  HotL Bay is still open, so now I think it will be about November 29 before Vermilion ices-over.  I am hoping to make it out December 2.  Looked back at previous forum reports and came up with the ice-over dates below:

      Happy Thanksgiving to all !

      If you think about it. With all the hunters, trappers, guides and people just living off the land up in Canada and Alaska. You have to wonder how many Ski-Doo Skandic's even make it down to the lower 48? I would even bet being so close to the boarder a lot more Arctic cat Bearcat's and Polaris Wide tracks head that way north then down here. Not trying to discourage you but it's kind of the hot time of year for sleds. You may do better picking up a used one at the end of the season this spring or very early next fall.  Good Luck. 😉
