Just wondering if it's worth hunting snow geese in MN anywhere near Crookston or if the majority of hunters just heads to ND. I am planning on going to school there next fall and plan to come check out the campus and town.

I figure if I do it sometime in mid-late March I could possibly get a little hunting in. I do have one possible connection but I think he hunts mainly in ND. Any info appreciated.

When ya get to Crox, just blow thru town that evening at about 60mph and you'll get to meet Wiskers. blush.gif

Gotta agree with the other guys, not much for snows.

A few years back when I was attending NDSU, I would see them quite often in fields along HWY 75 between Crookston & Fargo. Its been a few years though.

Hey we dont get snows but we get the honkers in the fall. And access too land isn't too difficult if you can find the farm. You'll like the school.

Yeah I've heard good reports about the duck/goose hunting in the fall. I'm glad to hear there's access possible too. I will be hunting birds as much as possible and hope to meet some fellow hunters. Otherwise I'm going to have to sell all my floating dekes to buy some full bodies blush.gif I'm just hoping there's no culture shock leaving all the water and trees for fields!

Don't sell your floaters. There is lots of water, public land, public access around the Mentor/Erskine/McIntosh area. You also have Thief Lake to the north too.

Like I said before, We moved to Crookston from Frostbite Falls about 14 years ago. Things are different. Different mill stink.

Well that's good because I really didn't want to sell my floaters. Guess I'll just have sell a kidney or something to add a bunch of full bodies to my collection blush.gif

Mike L,

Our mill stinks? smirk.gif

Yeah I plan to get my non-res ND license so I can do some waterfowling over there too. Also wouldn't mind getting into some pheasants. Reading your profile sounds like we would get along great, although my partying is pretty non-existant Sept-Nov because those birds don't seem to like to sleep in grin.gif Maybe we'll have to hook up for a hunt once I'm over there.

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
