Unusual Week-Need some help

Recommended Posts

tealitup

I actually have this week off of work; I thought I would run out this morning and check Sherburne National Forest. Wow, what a waste of time. The Fed's have closed Long Pool to any and all boat traffic - there is NO water except for a stream.

I then checked out some local pot holes without any luck. Seems this years drought has been worse then what I thought.

So, does anyone have any other ideas of where to go this week? I live in Saint Paul but will drive up to an hour+. Any help will be great. I prefer to walk-in but have a canoe, boat, 100 decoys and five spinner style decoys.

Most people here wont' really help out over the web board. But I will. There are some good WMAs around jorden, there is another out near buffalo, in french lake township. jorden you will need the canoe, frech lake you can walk in. in a gazetteir from a sporting goods shop. the wma's show up. i cant give ypu directions, it been 3 to 4 yrs since ive been to anyone of the areas. i remember french lake was across from a buffalo farm down a dirt road. hope this helps.

the river bottoms from shakopee through jordan have tons backwaters. J've never hunted any but have seen alot of ducks and geese back there during the winter snowmobiling. alot of them you will need a boat but a few you could walk in.

I went just north of Jordon south of shokopee and it was tough walking. The river was about 4-5 feet high so just a little too deep for me walking. But there was birds.

I've been thinking about scouting the Jordan river bottom area for places to duck hunt, if anybody has interest in doing the same or getting together to hunt that area let me know. I usually go to Little Falls or Hastings and was looking for something closer to home.

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
