Squirrels within reasonable drive

Recommended Posts

Looking to chase some Squirrels over MEA break with my 12 year old son.  We live in Savage and I don't want to drive all the way down to SE MN.  Are there any WMA's near  us that are worth trying?

If you can get there easily, so can everyone else. Unfortunately I have had poor luck chasing small game anywhere within an hour of the metro. Additionally, all my scariest "hunting accident" moments have occurred in the same situations. It never involved me doing something incorrectly. It was always having another hunter violating one or more hunting laws (blaze orange) or gun safety rules. 

 

I would say there are a handful of places I would go to, but they are pretty tough to get to and usually involve crossing large hills or water.

      Last year was the first time that I remember seeing any plowed roads out of the west end. I agree about chains making a huge difference on ATVs, but not if the snow is deep. Sleds ride on the snow. ATVs need to get down to the ice or packed snow.   It has been a while since I have heard of any guides setting out sleepers. If one did, they would need to do some good advertising to make it worth it.

      First year I put it out I went 3 miles out from the closest plowed road.  Used the lake snowmobile trail for a few miles, then packed my own trail before dragging it out.  Slush could be a problem but you could do the same thing (pack a trail with your sled the night before and let it freeze overnight).  Portables are much easier to move, but not as comfortable as a wood house.   Vermilion Ice Conditions - heard there was still open water on Big Bay Thursday and Friday.  Not sure if I will go out 7 days from now.

      Happy Holidays Muskies !! I've been off sight for a long while. My Son died in July at 45 from a heat stroke while working in Knoxville Tn. I've had a hard time with that.  We did not make our fall trip to Rainy Lake, and the effects of it all are felt now.  How was the fall ?  A friend with a guide service there told me I didn't miss anything, and the lack of post tend to support that. We appreciate all post and fishing chatter shared on this forum and especially all you share. Best wishes for a great winter. CHEERS to all !!
