Got out for the last day of early goose this morning and shot 10 birds in a cow pasture field, had 7 and took a pic when my buddy had to leave for a test, took his 5...should have had a limit by then but bad shooting. I stayed til 9:15 and shot 3 more for a limit.

them goose alfredo pasta is so darn good!

Jordyn- Bemidji State University is a great school with excellent majors and courses to choose from and with the new addition of the hockey rink is a great asset to the BSU. The hunting can be pretty good if you find the birds, I do not do any hunting within the Bemidji area though. The nature up here is second to none with all the fishing you can do on different lakes, if you come up you will definitley enjoy it up here. I have not heard many bad things about former BSU students attending, even the guys and gals on this forum miss it up there and enjoyed their 4+ years of school.

I would have left my email for you to contact me to talk a little bit more but we are not supposed to on this forum....Anyways I have hunted very little for waterfowl around Bemidji but head a little more west and you should be set. You will see more hay fields, pasture fields more than wheat, soybeans, and corn. So chances are better West of Bemidji but pressure can be high. Good Luck, post in the Bemidji section for advice and so on if you make the decision attending BSU next fall.

Bemidji State was the best 5 years of my life. Could have done it in 4 but whats the hurry. I didn't personaly do much duck hunting around Bemidji but had lots of friends that did. There are a lot of lakes close by with rice in them. Most of the people up there are Hunters and Fishermen so you can get lots of hook ups on by networking. Loved it up there.

I shot a few ducks this weekend, 4 different species including Spoonbills, Greenwing Teal, Mallard (my first greenhead)and a Gadwall. Sorry I don't have many pics but I was too busy chasing ducks. Spoonbills and Teal ruled the weekends hunt making up 80% of the bag. My first greenhead didn't come without a fight, we had jumped a pond and about 75 ducks got up and they flew to my buddies posting on the other side and after they had shot, the ducks flew right over me and I touched off 2 shots at the drake only to watch him smack the water with such force that it shot water up 3'. I looked for half an hour and no dice, so we went back to the house and got the dogs only to have Lucy find it in less than 2 minutes. Dogs are an invaluable tool to the duck and pheasant hunter.

unfortunately Lucy got a thorn in her paw and caused an abscess so now her paw is twice as big as the other one. On heavy antibiotics so she should be ready to go in 2 weeks for pheasant opener. A learning opportunity to check their pads every night so stuff like this doesn't happen.

Tuesday Morning Hunting Flooded Corn Field.

5 man limit of Mallards and GWT with a Woodie, Widgeon and Pintail.

Saw 1000 plus ducks.

At one point we had 300 to 400 ducks within a 100 yard circle around us.

Is it a bad thing that you cannot shoot because there are too many ducks in the air and you do not want to educate a large number of local birds all at once........cool

      I went fishing for the final time this season yesterday.  It was not very good.  Its the latest I've fished in a season for many years though because its been so warm out.   I decided not to duck hunt again this season based on the lack of success I've had in recent years.  By the reports I've heard locally, I made the right decision.   Between a full time job, yard work, going to the gym, and being a responsible Father/Husband, I don't get as much time to do what I want to anymore.  That's just the reality of it.  Sometimes I regret the decisions I've made on that, but now I'm stuck with it and its a necessary evil.  Retirement is still 20+ years away.  But I did go fishing 31 times this past season and I'm taking the whole week off to deer hunt.  After deer hunting I'll be pheasant hunting until the end of the year.   I'm grateful for my health and my mental ability that allow me to continue to do the things I enjoy, albeit not as much as I used to.   I try to post on here when I have successful days of fishing or hunting.  Sometimes it seems like the only fishing updates for weeks on end come from Vermilion.

      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...
