What some action? Go West!

Recommended Posts

Autumnhunt

What a season for waterfowl! It has been the best season I've seen so far. Opening weekend, three guy's 36 ducks- We were done Sunday morning at 9 am!

Last Friday morning before the cold front we ended up with a two man limit in one hour! It was fun, but I felt a little ripped off as I like to sit for more than one hour after setting out 100 + decoys! If you are looking for action go way West! I don't want to give up my exact location, but the closer you go to the Western MN state border the better action you will see. I even have seen and bagged a few divers including: Bills, Bufflehead, Redheads and ring necks. Be careful, the Canvasback are even in the state!

There are plenty of Wigeon, Green/Blue Wing Teal, Pintail, Gadwall and Mallards to be had.

I've been hearing from many that they are having a tough go at it this year and though I would put in a my suggestion as every waterfowler should experience a hunt like this. Go West!

Good Luck to all,
Autumnhunt :-)

West May be good (I know from opening weekend experience as well), but for those who don't want to be traveling that far the ducks are thick in southern minnesota at least in the place that I have been going to. I have been having ringbills, pintail, widgeon, teal, gadwalls, nice green heads, woodies, geese, even a few scuap. I think the key to getting limits in this area is to say away from the big water for now and hit the smaller potholes and rivers!!!!!! 55 ducks for us this year and still counting. Mankato area has more birds than anywhere in the area in my opinion. GOOD HUNTIN!!!!!!!!!!!!

Been putting my time in south of Mankato. The trick has been to gain access to private land and hunt the flooded fields. I`ve shot more species of ducks than I have ever shot. Geese are on and off. Can`t wait for them big northern green heads.

When you ask for permission to hunt on someone's land, do you just drive around and find land that has water on it and just go ask?

I've wanted to do this too, but just haven't been out scouting.

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      Really small scallops

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.

      Couple boat  trailers sitting on 22 access this afternoon. Everyones getting the itch 
    • smurfy
      Yeah and if that's the case bring your own water for the boat to sit in. I've seen nest on a normal opener!!

      The cheeks could be good sushi if you like the texture. Too chewy for my taste. Now I just pop them in the frying pan for about 10 seconds for a tasty appetizer
