Squirrels within reasonable drive

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.

      Drove by pleasant lake today coming home from st cloud.  99% of that lake is wide open yet

      Got up today. You're correct skunked. It frozen solid as far as I can see in front of me. Snowmobile tracks are running along our shoreline 🤔

      Thanks for the input. I wish that were closer to the west end, as that's a bit of a hike for me but will always be an option.

      From the White Eagle webcam, it looks like only the wings are iced up but the majority of Head O Lakes is open water still.   Therefore I likely won't be heading up there until the holidays.

      Darrell - thanks for the information.  I also heard some scary news about premature ice fishing on Vermilion.  A couple of guys fishing in Stuntz Bay on 2.5" of ice.  Another couple fishing in narrows close to open water.   Weather doesn't look great for making ice, and the snow cover will slow it down.  Will consider all information and use maximum safety IF I decide to try going out Wednesday.  It is a long winter so there is no rush to get out.

      JerkinLips, I normally don't post about hear say!! but I did hear from a reliable source that a couple of fishing people went through walking out from McKinley. For what that's worth, this was earlier this week.

      anybody???? anything??????????

      Heard some people were out fishing at McKinley Park today.  HotL Bay is still open, so now I think it will be about November 29 before Vermilion ices-over.  I am hoping to make it out December 2.  Looked back at previous forum reports and came up with the ice-over dates below:

      If you think about it. With all the hunters, trappers, guides and people just living off the land up in Canada and Alaska. You have to wonder how many Ski-Doo Skandic's even make it down to the lower 48? I would even bet being so close to the boarder a lot more Arctic cat Bearcat's and Polaris Wide tracks head that way north then down here. Not trying to discourage you but it's kind of the hot time of year for sleds. You may do better picking up a used one at the end of the season this spring or very early next fall.  Good Luck. 😉
