Next Weekend

Recommended Posts

monstermoose78

With all the ducks I am seeing next weekend should be a fun time. I am going to be chasing Ducks in the morning and deer in the evening. I am jacked up for this duck season. My cousins husband said we will be doing more diver hunts this year. I am thinking I will hunt my dad's pond opening morning, because I will be deer hunting the field that afternoon.

I was pretty impressed with the amount of ducks I saw around MN the few times I was there dog training this summer. I think if you guys scout out a solid spot, you're going to have a good weekend.

 

Good luck everyone!

It will be a little warm and blue bird like weather, but it will still be a good time. With all the opening weekend and done'ers out there to keep birds moving around. 

 

I look forward to it every year. Good luck to all and be careful.

My hunting partner is busy Saturday so we will just head out Sunday morning. I'm going to check the access of the lake we will be going to on Saturday morning. If it looks like a zoo we will chase geese instead.

What's the rules for hunting public lakes? I know there is a distance from buildings. Anything else you need to know? Thanks

No distance from buildings under state law when on public water, there are local ordinances for some towns/townships.

      Just heads up, if you haven't already heard.  Camp Ripley youth hunt has been cancelled for 2020. 
      Public hunts will not have a lottery, information and purchase dates will be released in August.  This allows for a easier cancelation of the hunts.
       
      Thanks Covid.

      Ok so you have limited time to pull a deer in. You know there's deer within 1/4 mile due to sign. Around the rut maybe shortly before or during, what would you use to pull a buck into your set-up either blind or stand. Rattling and calling wont work just an attractant of some kind be it corn or liquids or such. What do you use and why?
       
      Thanks

      Starting to go through my Turkey vest and started practicing some of my turkey calling again. Yes Ill admit I'm no Will Primos 😂 In fact far from that but I can strike up a cord or two with the turkeys 😉 As far as calls go Ill start with some of the ones I personally use. 
       
      LOCATOR CALLS - I use 3 different ones a Owl hoot, crow, pheasant cackle for location or pinnign down the location of a TOM. Shock gobbles work also but be very carefull it can draw hunters on public land so watch your backside. 
       
      BOX- One of the easiest to use a great call for beginners. Easy to make some of the basic sounds on it. In fact probably the most common call in peoples Turkey vests. Tip use a box call rubber band or make sure call is secured or when walking through woods call will make some unwanted noises. 
       
      Diaphragm calls-Probably one of the best but also the hardest. Takes some practice and is not for everyone. Some people will have a serious gag reflex when attempting to use one. Positive you can make quick putts purrs, clucks etc with one. Probably the best call to master and best for a ground hunter without  blind. Takes away all hand movements when you got a Tom in close. 
       
      Friction Calls- My Favorites I've been using friction calls for years. For Very windy days I use a Crystal top to strike out there cut through wind very loud birds can hear it from long ways off. For reaching up over a ridge distance on a more calm day you cant beat glass kind of a medium range call.  Slate is the one I use when right in the woods calm days and have birds close by a very soft more subtle call that produces great results with birds in closer distances and face to face. 
       
      Call conditioners- You will want to add a stone, sand paper, chalk to keep all your calls in good working condition. A high pitch unwanted  squeal will send a Tom running in no time! 
       
      Decoys- Big fan of Flextone have a feeding and resting hen and a Jake. Plus I have a Primos B-MOBILE when I have a  aggressive dominate I'm after. At last resort and I have shot couple using a mojo scoot-and-shoot . This is a true rush if you haven't tried it! 👍
       
      Blinds- Been using Ameristep doghouses for years, Setup 4 of them on my private property's in strategic locations but if all else fails have a vest and seat and will get right up in there faces if I have to.
       
      Just throwing out some of the tools of the trade that have helped me be very successful in Harvesting some nice Toms over the years.

      With all the craziness going on. I need turkey season to focus my mind on something. I need to shoot the crossbow soon and get the gear sprayed for ticks. I thought about getting a lay down hen but do I really need another turkey decoy?
       
       The turkeys are using the corn field on the neighbors land but I will cut them suckers off. I cleared a spot last year so I can shoot behind my blind. 
       
      let’s get some good turkey talk going on in here!! Come on guys.

      Mussels. Not muscles. I'm a spelling specialist.

      Regarding Eurasian Water Milfoil, last I heard bass fisherman love it. Regarding zebras, I have said all along that while it may be true that they will flourish after introduction to a new lake, they will eventually find an equilibrium based on the food supply in the lake. Osakis was infected a few years ago. Just a couple weeks ago I was talking with one of the lake shore owners and asked him what he has seen. He said at first, the zebra muscles were all over his docks and boat lifts in the fall when he pulled them out of the lake, however, for the past couple years they have not been so thick. In fact, last fall when he pulled out his docks he counted seven muscles attached. I have also heard reports that fish and other aquatic animals have now begun feeding on zebras. One species in particular that I've heard mentioned is sunfish. Maybe the lakes will have too many jumbo sunfish now?

      I haven't been out for while but one thing I find that brings a little success, especially in late summer, is long line speed trolling with crankbaits over shallow water. By speed trolling I'm talking about 3 to 5 mph and by shallow water I'm talking about 10' or less. I've found success doing this while breaking all the rules. For example, one day I connected with a few 20"+ eyes over 8' of water around 1:00 in the afternoon on a calm, bright sunny day. The water was like a sheet of glass.    The challenge for you will be to find those areas where you can troll cranks so they bang the bottom, which means locating those areas under 15' that are virtually weedless. I won't give you the exact coordinates but consider the south town bay area for one. Have fun!

      Find some little bullheads. Pull them on a live bait system.

      Not sure if I can do that, we are getting ready to head home pretty soon.   Got some medical checkups. But sure appreciate the offer. Daughter and grandkids here at the moment

      Well I'm up until Wednesday and got out for the first time this afternoon. I went right to one of my favorite lead core spots and it was game on. Alot of 15-16" fish. I was running 26-28 feet. Multiple colors of cranks worked. Shads and flickers both worked. Lots of trollers out. Probably the most I've ever seen on a day.

      Must not have done a goose round up in the cities this year. Haven’t seen this many geese for at least 10 years. Also a lot of swans.

      and it's really dark in there when they turn off the lights!!!!

      Some of the lakes where the otter tail river leaves, offer some shore fishing areas, both on the river and the lake. I caught a few hammer handle pike, but there were sunnies swimming all over the place.
