Grouse hunt 10/9

Recommended Posts

setterguy

Good morning for bird hunting, went to a spot about 90 miles north of the cities hunted for 2 1/2 hours. 7 points 4 shots 3 ruffies fell. 2 woodcock points (surprised there weren't more) Dogs performed well, birds were YOUNG. Leaves are 90% gone from trees and wind was perfect. All birds came on some kind of edge, all in all a good day for a quick hunt.

I guess I chased on the timberdoodles out of the county - that or the full moon.

Saw 21 points on Thursday and another 12 points on Friday Friday's spot was about 35 miles N of the spot I hunted Th. Seems about 10 - 15 days early for those kinds of numbers.

I was out Friday and only had 3 points, but a total of 15 flushes. I also saw 7 on the road while driving around. I only saw 2 woodcock on this outing, but I saw 7 or 8 last weekend and shot 3.

Those look like much bigger birds than we were finding today. I wish we had more time, as we just started to get into them as we had to leave.

Nice Work boys!

Made it out Sunday afternoon for a quick hunt. Bumped 10 and downed 4. Wasn't the best day for shooting for some of us........

Yesterday got out for an hour and a half and bumped 6, but not the oppertunities for shooting this day.

Going to try and sneak out early today b4 the weather rolls in.

Those out last Friday also know it was very WINDY.

Shooting at woodcock as they rise over the aspens and take the wind! Fun.

My results today near Mille Lacs, by myself, with no dog.

-Flushes somewhere about 15 grouse, no woodcock. 6 shots, with 2 bagged. Beautiful day to be out in the woods all alone!

The birds where I was were sure flushing early. I could not even see some of the flushes, only sound let me know they were there. But it was on public land that gets hit awful hard.

A tree or 10 between you and them!!! ha ha

Got out yesterday before the crud slushed in and was batting a 1000 on the first three, but ended the day with only those three to show for it. We bumped 10 total.

The birds I got into last week were very nice size compared to others I have got this year. I was hunting a new place away from areas with lots of pressure so the birds could be a couple years old.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
