Hey every one,

my old lohman wood duck finally bit the big one, so I am in the market for realistic sounding wood duck call. My old lohman would stop woodies in their tracks, but I heard the duck commander wood duck call and it sounded off. Please let me know what you use and how it work thank you.

Well I am going to cabelas as they seem to have the largest wood duck call selection around. Seeing the response in here was so great. I researched most of the wood duck calls out there. The nice thing is wood duck calls are cheap compared to mallard calls. My plan is to pick up two or three calls this week and try them out and report what I found.

I have the duck commander woodie call and to my untrained ear it sounds pretty good. I've not had the experience of stopping in their tracks but I've gotten a few to turn only to get turned off. Y something. 

 

I like it but I'm by no means even a decent caller.

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I have been numbers of birds in smaller groups now. There is a group of jakes I am seeing every day on public ground. Toms are seeming to be in pairs or threes yet. I have seen a few hens but they were in small groups as well. It is getting close.

           Decent first three weekends of the waterfowl season in central MN. Been water hunting only so far, on permanent water. Ducks are dispersed with all the temporary flood water around from all the rain. Crops are slowly coming out, will probably be behind schedule due to wet conditions. We have harvested mallards, wood ducks, BWT, GWT, shovelers, pintails, redheads, ringnecks, ruddy ducks,and Canada geese so far. Locals the first two weekends, but the cold front last week move a lot of local ducks out and a few new birds moved in out of ND and Canada. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Any bird reports from the South end??? 
      Just wondering if anyone is seeing anything flying or loafing. I am coming up for the weekend to do some maintenance on my parents place. Trying to decide what to haul up there. I know what I saw a month ago, but a lot can change in a short time on big water. 
      People with eyes on conditions helps. 
       
      Thanks.

      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.

      It is about time to start scouting for deer.  I have been seeing lots of deer hitting bean fields. The deer have been using a trail near the pond at my dads and this is good for me seeing I can hunt on the down wind side of this trail. Is anyone starting to get the itch to sit in a stand waiting for deer to come by?
      The oats and wheat field are be harvested and the geese are starting to fly around looking for the harvested ones.
      I have been looking for ducks and have been finding a good number of wood ducks, teal, and mallards around for now. 
      I will be getting some practice time in with the crossbow, so I am ready for the first day of deer season. I should get out and shoot some trap as well with the shotgun to get ready for the goose season.

      Federal Duck Stamps came out today. Can't say I've ever seen a Ruddy Duck but it won the contest. 
      If the stamps are out the seasons have to be getting close. If you think about it early goose is only a month month and a half away! Time to start putting spreads together, adding those last minute decoys to the stack and tossing layout blinds in the sun to get faded. 
      Anyone hunting ducks over 16years old needs a stamp. I would recommend you buy your young hunters one too. Just for the memory factor. 20years from now they will look at all the stamps in the file and be thankful they had one your each year he or she hunted.

      Anybody been out on the river this fall? Was thinking of trying the harbor this weekend but have never fished it this late in the year. Is it even worth it or go try the river mouths for some salmon?

      And vowed to be appealed.  It’s a battle that may never go away.

      If I was going up I would.

      Spinning tackle.    I wonder if anyone tried ice fishing on any of the lakes that had frozen on Saturday? I would imagine the ice would be 4 or more inches, with the night time temps getting into the low teens every night.

      Anglers will have the opportunity to catch trout on remote lakes in northeastern Minnesota following helicopter-based fish stocking efforts this fall. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It appears the US Fish and Wildlife Service is in the press of removing the Grey Wolf from the Endangered and Threatened lists.  After waiting period they will be delisted on January 4th 2021.

      Just sitting out tonight in my blind, no gun, just watching.  4 hoodeds flew by and 6 GWT set in at less than 20 yards.  1 coot with them.   I just watched them all dabble to within 5-10 feet.  They are eating machines and competitive.  If you really want to learn how to set dekes, just watch the birds sometime.

      Very nice!  Fly rod or tackle?
    • Wanderer
      I noticed the same.  Happens here and there and I usually report it.   That said, I read through some of the old posts and was interested in the Red Wing comments.  Quality, then a departure followed thankfully by a return in quality.   I used to rotate 2 pairs Irish Setters when I worked in a machine shop.  Wear one till it needed to be re-soled, then switch to the other pair.  Great boots that kept my bones healthy on cement floors.   I just recently bought a new pair after being absent from work boot type work for 15 years and it’s seems like the quality is still there.  Very comfy and built well.

      Lowering the bag limit or instituting a restrictive harvest size will only so far too.  We both know that there isn't enough enforcement out there already.  What its going to have to take is a complete culture shift from mostly harvest to mostly catch and release.  It has caught on in the world of bass and muskie fishing for years now and their populations have responded with an abundance of thriving populations and trophy caliber fish.
