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.

      My in-laws used to live just down from morning star. They weren't on the lake but they supposedly had access to the lake near morning star, some lake easement for residents living on the opposite side of the lake.

      One last morning on the water this past Saturday before we took the docks and lifts out in the afternoon. Trolled the Morning Star bay for crappies. It was slow with just 2 or 3 crappies, although they were big ones. We could have kept them but chose to release. Also got a couple of northerns. I got skunked but my girlfriend got a good size northern. Biggest fish that any of the four of us caught on Saturday.

      Well, actually going on family life expectancy.  Not many man on my dad's side made it past their late 60's.  On the other hand my wife's side most lived to late 80's into 90's.  So again, I really don't want to leave me wife in an area she is unfamiliar with or know anyone.  If she should pass away before me for some unknown reason.  Yes, they will find me dead in a cabin in the woods.

      Well I had to go north this weekend with the predicted weather and boy did it not disappoint!   What a great weekend of perfect weather!!  Hit up Gull Lake Saturday afternoon equipped with a dozen lite pike minnows and a plan to move until we graphed fish and move if they don't bite.  First stop we searched and found one spot with bait balls and a few fish but nothing was biting so we went searching.  Searched alot of ground over the next hour and half and didn't mark a fish, so we went back to the spot with fish marked and as we pulled up there was one boat right on the spot...catching a fish!!  We trolled around with this boat exchanging information and catching fish for the next 2 hours.  We ended up catching 9 throwing back a 25" and keeping 8 from 13" up to 23" that was gut hooked.  Fished in 20-32' of water using lindy rigs with lite pike minnows.  Some fish we would give a lot of line to and they would have the bait swallowed and other times we would give line and find the hook just barely in the lip!  Missed a lot of hook sets but could not beat what was possibly the last fishing trip of the year for me...GOOD LUCK

      I have been gearing up getting ready to walk again after 10 weeks!  I have been lucky enough to get out fishing a few times and can't wait to get out in the deer stand...bad thing is I have a basketball tournament for my 4th grade son on opening weekend of deer season and I am the coach!  Oh well I have used enough patience getting this far, what are another few days!  Otherwise not much for me to do...

      i think Leech is using his wife as a an excuse not to actually live out in the sticks in fear of meeting up with bigfoot!!!!!!!!!!🤣🤣🤭
