Grouse hunting

@Rick you are correct but ducks vs grouse. I love grouse but it’s a drive to get to good grouse grounds. Maybe later this month.

i've always found birds in pockets regardless of counts. as a matter of fact some of my best years have been the lowest count years. i've learned you can't shoot one from the couch! and a lot of peopl

Spent 9 days at camp with a buddy. Filled out in 4 1/2 days. Saw close to 90. They are pretty wild. Chased one for a quarter mile through swamps and islands before I got him. Spent the rest of the wee

i've always found birds in pockets regardless of counts. as a matter of fact some of my best years have been the lowest count years. i've learned you can't shoot one from the couch! and a lot of people don't go when the numbers are supposedly low. that was near Orr. yup, kind of a haul. but i stayed in the hotel in orr with a pool so the kids could swim, then took them to the bear sanctuary in the evening. a pretty darn good weekend. gotta make it fun for the little ones!

We had a bit of snow up north again. Grouse hunting not too bad.

There are plenty of birds out there we got 25 for the 4 of us last week in 4 days. Cover isn't an issue if you are far enough north.

Quite the haul! How far north are we talking? I'm debating between Nemadji and Mille Lacs WMA. No dogs, solo at first light.

Tentative plan to get out Friday morning early. I’ll be North of Duluth. Hoping to chase some birds (grouse)!

First time in Canosia Wildlife area...flushed 2 birds but no shot. Fun to be in the woods. Long season to keep trying this sport!

Good to hear other's are having success out there. I went out on Monday morning, just after we got all the rain. Perfect time of year I think, the aspen leaves are mostly down now, and I saw lots of promising grouse habitat. Spent the day bush whacking, but only managed to flush one bird (no shot) and it got into some thick cover that I couldn't pursue through. Still great to be outdoors, but I was bummed to not get to heat up the cast iron. Next time!

      @pikeguy2003 the bite has slowed all over from what I’ve been seeing and hearing.  Pretty easy to blame it on last week’s cold front and now we have another, but we’re getting into the harder part of the season.   That said, someone is always on them somewhere and hopefully they’ll let you know!  I’m replying for 2 reasons: one, so you don’t just get crickets 😉 and two, my interest in Tonka has been reignited lately.     Looking over the maps last night I was reminded of the holes on flats and the basins outside the many coves where they frequent in the spring.  Drill some of those areas out from shallow to deep.  If you find good weeds shallow they could still be in there but will head to the basin if not.   Sorry, that’s the best I can do without being there!

      Been hearing the bite on Waconia is not great.  Have not been on Tonka yet.  Anyone finding the sunfish on Tonka yet or another lake.  I have relatives that do not really fish wanting me to take them out Sunday as it has been about a year since we did a fish fry.  Any help would be appreciated.   Thanks, Pikeguy

      Yeah with a ton of bays with channels that don't always freeze over.  Never said I haven't sledded on lakes like the Gull chain or Whitefish chain with a lot of channels. 🙄  Just said, I never ice fished Minnetonka before.    DNR: at least 5 dead after falling through ice this season BMTN Staff Updated: Mar 8, 2018 On Lake Minnetonka, there have been more than a dozen incidents where either a vehicle or snowmobile have broken through the ice this winter.

      So, are there crappies in Black Lake?   
    • Wanderer
      Respect it like you would Burntside.  It’s really a metro lake made for snowmobile ice fishing.  Shorter runs for sure but really the same type of deal.

      I have worked with a lot of viruses.  We wear that to protect the virus from us.  So we don't contaminate our cultures.  Of course if you are working with a problematic virus you will be glad you have it on too.

      I believe the city of Deephaven owns the ramp and the parking on the south side of Minnetonka Blvd. Residents have a pass to park there and along blvd between the signs from  May 1 to October 1. The lot by the pickle ball courts and the lot by Deephaven Elementary are open to people without city pass. You don’t need a pass to launch your boat at the landing.
