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 retired 2½ years ago.  My wife finally agreed to move up north after she retires the end of 2021.  When she retires there is nothing that would keep us in the cities.  Blaine has been very peaceful over these turbulent times, but I have a lot of buckshot for my three 12ga shotguns just to be safe.  Anywhere from Barnum to Soudan would be fine for us (easy day trip to Vermilion).  Would go as far west as Grand Rapids.  Would love to live on Vermilion but the prices are just too high now.  Best of luck to you.

      How far north?????🤔😅
    • leech~~
      Wife just retired. I retire next May. Hope to follow you north before the next round of riots and lotting in Brooklyn Center! 👍

      Is it a hard stall like too much pressure that kills it or does it just die out?   The hard stall would most likely be caused by your pump locking up.  A die out would be fuel or maybe even spark, although less likely.   What pressure washer?

      Repairing our house in Blaine for sale in the next 2 years so we can move up north.  Duck hunting, fall fishing, and sighting rifles in next week.  Winterizing our place in Soudan also.  Been a great fall for these projects.

      I have a power washer that runs for a few minutes and then stalls out.  Can't restart it for hours.  The shop said it was a carb and so I replaced that and it still happens.  I thought it may be a problem with the vent in the gas tank but left the cap loose and it still happened.    Any ideas?   Thanks for your time.   Tom

      If I had more time I’d fish between hunting outings but I have to be thankful to have any hunting time right now.  And believe me I slip it in whenever I can.  November will probably be better on that front but I need to keep working when there’s work to do being I’m seasonal now.   Granddaughters birthday today and then some home chores before getting back to work on Sunday till the job is done.   With the calendar migrating divers moving through the state right now I sure feel the urge to be out there!  I guess I’ll have to wait until the late season migration but it could be good!

      My brother and dad were on Rice lake by Eden Valley Tuesday. They got one 23 inch walleye and a northern. All returned for the next angler.

      I got a 3 day weekend (very rare); so today after my annual physical I spent the afternoon cutting Chinese Elms in the CRP. Was great temperature for it. Probably put boat away this weekend as most landings have docks pulled. Just don’t feel like battling the loading process. Do some deer scouting and maybe clean up the inlaws lawn at the lake. Will try to get the dog in the grass for a rooster also.
