Crowded public lands?

Just curiuos what others are seeing for hunters in different areas,Marshall,Slayton,Big Stone,Canby,or how about S. central, of Pheasant areas? I have not had any trouble finding areas.I get to a spot at least 1 hour before shooting times, I have seen a few searching for spots at 8:55, they are always the guy that come over the hill and when they see a truck at thier spot it's 60 mph to the next down the gravel.

Also to all hunters I have come across, Thanks for not pushing in on me. I have had no disrespectful experiences this year to date. It's nice to be able to say that as we so often read about the bad apples(slobs).

I'm also wondering about this. I live in Itasca County, so it looks like I'd have a 2 to 3 hour drive to hunt pheasants. By the sounds of things, there's lots of birds. I too am wondering about WMA's and WPA's for pheasant hunting. I'm off every other Tues-Thurs. so hopefully I wouldn't have to put up with too much competition. Any one have any counties that are within a couple hours drive for me to start searching in? No honey holes, just counties that have alot of public areas.

I have been hunting in the Marshall area the last two weekends now. Opening weekend there were quite a few birds and 2 of us had our limit by 11 both days. This last weekend was quite a bit slower and only hunted on Friday and Saturday. A little too hot to hunt both for me and the dog. Not as easy to get birds this weekend too. I also would like to thank a few hunters for not being disrespectful. I have had no bad experiences thus far with anybody. Any other reports from the Marshall area or further south?

I hunt I Canby a couple times each year, I have it a bit easier than most I get to hunt a bunch of private land. The nice thing about that area is that there is also many WMA's and WPA's in that area. I have found that the later in the season you hunt out there is better. First of all the corn is out, secondly you get the hunters that only hunt a few times a year out of the way, this opens up the land a bunch. Was out there for opener and plan a trip out there in a few weeks, and plan to try a few of the WMA's while there. Many of the WMA's have water holes there so about all you will have to compete with are some duck hunters before the ponds freeze up.

Hunt em up!

I've been doing some research and am tempted to take a week day and head down to the Mora/Millaca area and hunt some of the WMA's for pheasants. From the DNR population map I got, it looks like there should be some birds in that area. Anyone have any ideas?

      You could do Isanti to St. Francis also.  About mid way is Anderson Park that has a small sandy access.  Anderson Park to St. Francis had fewer but some bigger fish while Isanti to Anderson Park had better numbers and not as many big fish.   All upstream from Isanti to the access on Hwy 95 can be hit or miss but if you hit it, it can be good.   Up to 16’s is fairly common bit there are enough 16-20’s to not be shocked if you get one or more.   I’d never admit to this while I lived there. 😉

      Some pressure but nothing like lake fishing

      Hey thanks guys, I appreciate your input. It sounds like this float might be best to put off a year when the water is up a little higher. I'll check the gage next summer and see how it looks. I was hoping to get into some 18 to 20" fish (aren't we all), so maybe they will have moved back in there by then.   Does the stretch south of St. Francis get very much pressure on it? I'll have to give it a look.

      Little more narrow up there, if I were to do it, I'd float St Francis to Andover. Shallow yes but it's a good stretch to fish

      I fished it further south near Milaca/Princeton a couple times in late July.  It was OK then but dropping.  The second time we definitely bumped more rocks and grounded out in a couple riffles.  I use a 10 foot jon boat that can float through a couple inches of water.  We caught 15-20 smallmouth both times, but nothing over 16 inches.  I think the drought last year sent the bigger fish out of there.  It may take a few years to recover.   You can check the flow on the DNR website.  There is a live gauge right in Onamia.  Anything below 11 feet is too low for me.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/waters/csg/site.html?id=21018002

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.

      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.
    • Caleb9
      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay
