My dream waterfowl hunt would be to take a whole fall off, and follow the migration from Nothern Canada, through the Midwest, and into the Gulf Coast. Especially rewarding would be to get to see and harvest one of each species of ducks in the Mississippi flyway. I would love to get some real late southern birds in full plumage, like a big Pintail with a really long tail, some colorful green-winged teal, and a cinnamon teal.

The hunt you had in Arkansas this fall looked like a good time. I would probably go with hunting in Arkansas.

Anywhere where my two boys are at my side hunting with me. One is 8 and is now shooting ducks...got three this year! The other is 4 and is anxiously waiting for the opportunity when he can shoot too. I dream of the years to come when these two can be sitting with me watching the ducks come in. There is nothing better than sharing that experience with them. That is my dream hunt!

Any weekend in November 25 years ago on Winnie when we used to see an actually northern flight. I miss the sound of 600+ wings as they screamed over our blocks.

Look up Argentina and Uraguay. Looks outrageously fun. Do MN opener with a guy that was in Argentina many years ago. The farmer didn't want them to quit shooting geese so the guides pulled out spotlights to keep on going. I saw pictures of the bed of a pickup heaped full. Have seen one lodge that includes in the price your first 2000 rounds. I thought it was a typo meant to be for a dove or pigeon hunt but it was confirmed elsewhere in the site. Pretty spectacular photo gallery.

Right now, 25 degrees and a stiff NW wind seems like a fantasy.

I don't know. I'm with Land'r on the kid thing. My son started in with me this past fall, so that really was a desire realized. Otherwise, probably Argentina.

The sun rises off the eastern horizon, burning the dew off the finely manicured grass. I spread bread crumbs around before settling into the leather seat of my truck. The geese come in, wave after wave. As I scan the birds through the scope, a small shimmer of light reflecting off the leg of a large bird catches my eye. I squeeze the trigger and a .177 pellet thunders down range. BOOM! Headshot. The other birds barely even react. I pump my gun 10 times, drop another .177 in the pipe and start scanning the flock again. I just need 3 more to fill up my call lanyard.

Now that's some dream huntin right there!

what? too soon?

My dream hunt would be on property that I owned and had developed into a waterfowl haven. Knowing that I would be passing it on to my sons and them to theirs.

My dream waterfowl hunt would be going after some roosters in a big slough smile Believe it or not those ring necks are amazing swimmers for not having webbed feet! Ive even seen them dive under water!

I would say my dream hunt would be like someone else said, my own property developed for waterfowl shooting side by side with my ol man

I usually have a least one dream hunt where everything works right and we end up shooting a fair amount of birds.

I dream of hunting and end up going to the same spots over and over again and I never leave minnesota

IceHawk, I had that experience 3 times in South Dakota thru the years where they were spiralling down, but nothing like you see on those snow goose video's!

I just purchased Habitat Flats F5 Buried in Snows DVD and all I can say is "Awsome" video to say the least! Wish I was there! blush

    • KidMoe
      With that detail Borch I could spend all summer trying the different suggestions and combos! Very well done sir!    I might have to venture away from Pool 4 to try out some clearer water for night time eyes!

      Just meaning trout  waters that have natural population of trout that are born and grow in the water their entire life.  Green pumpkin, browns, watermelons, black, silver/ blue, some orange. Colors those fish are used too. Insects, Minnows, crawdads etc.

      I was up last weekend(Memorial Day weekend) at the cabin on Birch Point. Where my electronics reading right that water was 64-66 degrees? Also tried up in the shallows in the pencil reads and sandy rocky bottoms of big bay, the side of the point our cabin is on, hoping to find crappies on beds, but nothing. Seems like the perfect area and water temp for all other lakes I’ve fished and there was nothin. Not a sight of beds or fish. Maybe there just isn’t good crappie numbers there? Anyone will to share some shallows for sight fishing on beds? And info on that water temp or what it currently is. and if that was right, is that still not warm enough for vermillion? Gonna be up the weekend of 6/5 to try again, and hoping to not miss it this week. Thank you

      Thanks for the input, Patches and good to hear you did well in the area.   Johnson lake is a memorable one for me. I fished there for the first time about two years ago around the last week of June and as soon as we drove past Frontier my pin clip for the boat trailer fell off. Never found out why and never happened again, but I noticed it gone at the launch. I was with a buddy of mine and my father, and I told them to just troll near the launch while I went back to look for the clip. After about 15 more minutes I found it in the middle of road, right outside Pine Cone Cafe.   By the way, it was overcast with the occasional sprinkle, but the sun would spill out as well. When i got back to the launch I noticed my two fisherman pals where not eager to come pick me up. In about 20 minutes they caught 3 walleye trolling spinners in about the 10-12 foot weed line outside of the launch.  We kept one feeling we were deserving giving the circumstance, but as soon as I got in the boat luck failed us again. We trolled the whole lake and only caught one more on the east side. The weather kept getting better which was probably the reason, but it seems like Johnson is like most likes in the area... where if there is a hot walleye bite its not going to last too long.    My Dad went out on Burrows the other day and got nothing too exciting besides northern while fishing the same tactic.  Thats one of our "go tos," but Im currenty not in the area, but getting there soon. Hopefully i bring better reports come as well.   Good Luck

      There's one on Craigslist in the free section. It's in rough shape, but the floats look good. Brooklyn Park.

      Smallmouth should be on beds spawning. Good time to fish smallmouth. Fishing off shallow water off rocky islands on East side of Vermilion should be in play. Troll and throw spinners to shore.  Look for line where big rocks end and small rocks/gravel starts.
