Best Place in the State?


Bird Dog

Recommended Posts

Just wondered what place you guys like to hunt in Mn.One of my favorites would be Jackson County in S.W. Mn.and private land anywhere in the pheasant range.I also like
Meeker county as it is a shorter drive for me.I prefer to hunt wild birds not game farm birds.

My dog and I are planning to go pheasant hunting in MN Sunday for the first time. We'd like to hunt closest to the NW metro as possbile. I've heard decent things about Meeker, Kandiyohi, Stearns and Sherbourne counties. Any thoughts/remarks/advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've heard there's a good number of birds in the SW and southern MN and should be even better when the corn is harvested.

Shorelunch, I live in Southern Kandi. County and work in Renville Co. They are really going to town on the crops around here and the hunting should improve each day. They are still lifting the sugar beets but once they get done with them they will take a lot of corn out pretty fast. If I was a betting man I would look towards the Western part of Kandi. County. Good Luck.

I know that Wright Co. has some public land that has been good in the past I think that alot of the crops are still out in the fields
I live in N.W.Hennepin Co. and private land to hunt is getting pretty hard to come by.The further out that you go the better
your chances are.There is alot of water out there this year.If it were to freeze up we would have more opportunities to get to more areas.If your going to hunt public land get out there early.

Hope that this helps

Goodluck!

In Stearns and Meeker the birds are doing OK(especially western stearns). But you'd be better off heading another hour or two SW. Lots of public land and birds. The Benson area has been real good. No shortage of pressure there though. A little farther SW and things get better. With the crops coming off things should really heat up soon.

When I have plenty of time I head for Lincoln Co. But for me the best place in the state is wherever I have time to get out for a couple hours.

On my yearly trip to lac qui parle, we always do good pheasant hunting in that area.

This has been my best year ever, and crops aren't out yet! I usually get one rooster a year (because everyone hits wild life areas in Renville county hard) but I've got four so far and I've walked half as many miles as most years. Dog finally working good, shot has finally got better, pheasant in oven, a girlfriend that likes to hunt and fish; like is finally good. wink.gif

Well . . . my lab got a good walk. Due to time constraints, I went to the WMA by Annandale. Heard lots of shots (at ducks) and saw a few very hopeful pheasant hunters.

I'll try the places posted above next trip out. Is it usually safe hunting these public lands during deer/rifle season? Does pheasant hunting disrupt their deer hunting?

I was hoping to get some more input from other people on your questions but heres my
2 cents.Most all of the pheasant range should
fall into the slugs only area for deer hunting.So you should'nt be dealing with long range rifle shots.I have never encountered a person hunting on a stand in any of the areas that I have hunted.I have seen them push a tree line etc. usually there done and out there in a short time.
If I would see someone hunting I would move on and come back later.Give the deer hunters
plenty of room and you should'nt have a problem.You may even kick up a deer and send it there way.Hopefully this helps some.On another note my brother took off almost the whole month of Nov. for hunting pheasant etc. so he'll be out and about I can let you know how he does in different areas he hunts alot of public ground.He found a new area that is not on the maps yet that looks promising in the area that you tried recently.I am going to take a couple days off and run down to S.W. corner in about two weeks.Maybe someone else will give there Ideas experiences etc..to help you out a little more.

he said that the corn was coming out of the fields in rapid fashion, not much stuff plowed under though.He said that it is dry down that way and that it was almost to hot for the dogs he had to carry lots of water.He felt that alot of the birds were still in the crops.I'll give it a try and let you know.

      Covid-19: Can you take online classes? These are some top tips to help you achieve better outcomes. Here are some top tips to succeed in your online classes for 2021. Treat your classes like a job Be selective in where you study Keep an eye on your internet usage Take care of yourself Another semester, another year! Due to the pandemic, things may look different in your schooling this year. Many students are now taking online classes, despite having only had experience with in-person classes. The content is unchanged, but it can be difficult for students to adjust to the new learning method. Online classes can be difficult if you aren't already. This article will share tried and tested tips that were passed on from previous students. These tips can help you to succeed in online classes. Treat your classes like a job It is easy to feel that your education is more informal now that you don’t have to travel and attend in person. You can certainly benefit from attending lectures in your pajamas. You can boost your motivation to study seriously by not doing any work in bed, or in your pajamas. sets clear boundaries as to when it's time to work and when it's time for you to live. Do not mix the two! If you are part of a full-time program, you might try to maintain a 9am-5pm work schedule at home. You should start work every day at 9am. Take your lunch break at a time that you choose, then work until 5 pm. This is a great method to keep you committed to your work and allow your school to continue to be your school. You might find it difficult to put your school away if you are a workaholic who doesn't have a set schedule. Be selective in where you study It is easy to stay focused when you are sitting in a lecture. It's easy to focus when you have only one thing to do: pay attention and learn from your teacher. Online learning can lead to distractions. Living with people can make it difficult to focus if they are also cooking, watching TV, or talking with you. All the noise can distract you from your goal. Avoid the common spaces in your home to create a peaceful space for studying. You don't need to study in your living room or kitchen. Instead, use your bedroom. While office space is a great option, we don't all have the luxury to do so. Make sure you have privacy and minimal foot traffic in your home. Keep an eye on your internet usage Online learning is hindered by the ease of accessing virtual distractions. If you watch an online lecture while simultaneously receiving messages notifications, it can cause you to lose your focus. You can set your laptop as "Do not disturb" so that you don't get distracted by notifications. Additionally, it is a good practice to have your lecture/or assignment fully displayed on the screen while you finish them. If you do this, you could accidentally lose your focus by filling up extra space with social media or news browsing. Clearing out extra browsing space can help you focus. Take care of yourself This is our last and most important tip. Be kind. Online learning isn't an easy transition. If you are not as productive or having difficulty staying motivated, it's normal. That's normal. You should take care of yourself. Alternative opinion in studentjob.co.uk article: http://www.studentjob.co.uk/blog/5757-best-online-exam-help-top-five-websites-you-can-trust

      Fished solo Sunday and Monday afternoon.  Began by targeting smallies, but couldn’t buy a fish which was odd because the conditions were juicy - calm, cool, cloudy, drizzly.   Frustrating to say the least!    Figured if I was gonna get skunked, then it might as well be swinging for the fence.  Switched to Muskies at 7:30 and got lucky as heck, putting three in the boat over the next two hours, including a porker 48”er.  Felt very content the rest of the evening.    Got back out on the water Monday afternoon under post-frontal high skies and was fortunate to trick this lonely blonde an hour into the day.  Missed another a short time later and had some follows before pulling the plug to head home.  Didn’t want to leave that’s for sure!  All East end fish caught casting btw and all released unharmed.   Water temp was 71.

      I recently found an interesting thomas king essay topic on this site. God, I'm so glad that now I shouldn't waste time surfing the web. By the way, the rest of the topics from the list were also very interesting.
    • MasonDavis1
      The main keywords of this essay “can virtue be taught essay”. Plato presents Socrates’ views on the question of virtue and knowledge. It can be taught in many dialogues, including Meno. Socrates offers many arguments regarding virtue in this dialogue. These arguments cover how virtue is defined, and whether people can attain it. He discusses how virtue can be achieved, including whether one is born virtuous and whether it can be taught. This essay will address the question of whether virtue is possible to teach. Plato answered that virtue can't be taught. This essay will argue that Plato could have asked the questions differently and given him a different response. Particularly, I argue that Plato could have asked whether virtue can be learned rather than asking whether virtue is taught.   Meno asks Socrates whether virtue is possible to teach. The argument is then shifted to another question: what is knowledge? Meno then proposed an interesting paradox. One cannot find anything new. Either one already knows the answer, in which case it is unnecessary to search for it, or one doesn't know it and can't recognize it once it is found (Plato 1997: 80d-e. To put it another way, if one doesn't know what virtue (arete) is, he cannot search for it. Because he will not be able to recognize it when he finds it. Socrates proposes a solution to this problem, which is based upon the Pythagorean view on the immortal soul. The idea that the soul can reincarnate and be destroyed after death of the body is an example of this. It is clear that one cannot acquire new knowledge, but it is also obvious that we are constantly learning new things. Therefore, learning must be a matter recollection of past lives experiences and knowledge. Also, remembering is more important than teaching.   He demonstrated the Meno with a young boy from slavery who didn't seem to have any geometry knowledge. He was able to prove that the boy knew certain mathematical theorems by asking him questions.   Meno again asks his original question. He wants to know if virtue can be taught or if one is born with virtue. Socrates agrees to continue, but says they need to find common ground because neither one of them can define virtue at this moment. Meno agrees that virtue cannot be taught if it is not knowledge. If it is knowledge, it can be taught. Meno points out that it is only possible to teach something if you know what it is. It is unlikely that someone who doesn't know how to drive a car can teach another. Meno and Socrates agree that no one knows what "virtue" means and can therefore not be taught.   Socrates claims that virtue can be taught if we are able to learn from those who teach it (Plato 1997: 96c). Socrates asserts that there are teachers who can teach horsemanship, medicine, and other skills. These teachers are recognized by everyone as legitimate, but people disagree on whether they actually teach virtue. Thucydides was the father of two sons. Neither of them were considered to be virtuous. It is claimed that Thucydides taught his children many disciplines. However, it seems that he couldn't find a teacher who could teach virtue, even though he had teachers for other areas of life that he valued. Even though he was virtuous, he could not even teach it. Virtue is not a form knowledge. To make something knowledge, one must be able teach it to others. Socrates concluded that virtue cannot and should not be taught, and that there are no methods or means by which one can acquire virtue. Refer to: Virtue is simply "shown that it will come to us whenever it comes" (reference).   Plato might have received a different answer if he had asked the questions differently, according to my opinion. Plato could have asked whether virtue could learn, rather than asking whether virtue can ever be taught. To put it another way, asking if one can be taught something implies that the relationship between a student or teacher is involved. However, asking if something can be learnt means that the student (or someone with similar life experiences) is asking if a teacher has taught you geometry. To ask whether I learned geometry, it is to simply ask whether it was taught to me by a teacher or if I learned it myself from a book or some other source.   There are many ways to learn. To learn something one doesn't need a teacher. Learning can be done by studying virtue-filled people, even though they may not know it. A man might be learning virtue and his "teachers" could be virtuous even though they may not be living. Experience is another form of learning. Experience can be a great way to learn virtue. This would mean that the "teacher" is a combination of life experiences and reflective nature. Another form of learning exists. Even if he can't explain how he learned it or what he knows, a man can still learn. After someone has experienced a certain problem in their life, he may be able to detect that his relative is also experiencing the same issue. He can recognize it but cannot explain how. Another example is the musician or painter who has learned their craft and can perform well but cannot explain what it was.   The question of whether virtue can or cannot be taught is therefore a different and more narrow one than the question of whether virtue can actually be learned. Plato was right when he said that virtue can't be taught. It is likely that many people know of or have heard of people who can recite the "rules of virtue" but cannot put them into practice. This is a clear indication that virtue cannot be taught. As I mentioned, being virtuous is similar to being able to play a musical instrument, which is instinctual. It could be argued, for instance, that the ability to recognize when to help a friend, or when to give it to him, is something we instinctually know.   This means that, although virtue cannot be taught, it is possible to learn virtue. Plato suggested that virtue is inherent. This is true to a certain extent. Some people have an extraordinary capacity for virtues such as compassion, empathy, and the like. Since they were born. Others, however, seem to have a lack of moral consciousness. This seems to be a problem because virtue cannot exist without it. This does not mean that virtue cannot be learned, but that the foundation is inborn.   The same way we understand that it is possible to preach virtue but not practice it, so too can the reverse. People can improve their understanding of virtue and may find that they are more virtuous through reflective practice. As they get older, their perceptions of what it means to act in a virtuous manner change. Plato might have received a more positive answer if he had asked different questions (e.g., if he had asked if virtue could be learned instead of if virtue could be taught).

      Red, the moose was near birch island. As far as the lead bite goes....I had heard it was lights out a week ago. No doubt from what I've seen that before 9am you can get into a good bite. For me it's been poor after that. I'd be real curious if others are finding that as well. I have tried deeper areas as well and they weren't good after 9am for me either.

      Good thing DNR is going mostly bucks only in the north....   Apparently all those deer I see along the road aren't enough

      That is great to see! Between Birch Point or Birch Island and Pine? Great to see wherever! Last one I saw was in Quetico umpteen years ago.   I’ve been wondering about lead core. I’m starting to find fish with lindy rigs (although I’ve started to use tungsten worm sinkers) or spinners with crawlers in 18-20’ near steep rocky shore.    Your wildlife shot reminded me of one I took about a month ago along 77. Thought I’d share it. not as cool as a moose, though!
