Pheasant Reports?

Recommended Posts

UGUIDE

Any pheasant reports from Minnesota and/or Wisconsin? South Dakota is looking good both for pheasants and ducks. The moisture levels and potholes are higher than I have ever seen. Seeing lots of pheasant and ducks.

What are the rest of you guys seeing across the region?

There are absolutely NO, Zero, Nada Pheasants in Lac Qui Parle County wink.gif (And the hatch won't be any good either!)

I was down by Huston and Rushford turkey hunting last week and we saw roster's every where we went. The cackling in the morning was nuts. Add that to the gobbling and this northern boy was impressed with the sounds of southern minnsota in the morning.

Saw lots of pheasants on the road over the weekend in the St Cloud area. Also pop says lots down around New Ulm area.

Labs have you ever tried pheasant jumbo????? Did it last winter it was great.

Only 3 days till I can get out foxed again by Mr. Tom but half the fun is sitting with my dad maybe some of his luck will finally rub off.

Lots of birds here in the far southwest corner. If it stays warm and dry at hatching time we will be just fine. Another year like the past two seasons would be just fine by me. Also had two different guys tell me they saw the first broods of young honkers today. One had six and the other one had seven. Excellent!

ya we definitely lost some hens in that big storm, but not as many as I had originally feared and the roosters came through even stronger. Good, warm and relatively dry conditions for the next month or more and we'll be in fine shape for another good fall. Could be the last for a while though, lots of extra corn planted this year and we lost plenty of habitat around the country to accomodate it and less habitat can't carry as many birds for a long period. Blame it on $4 corn!!!

Pheasant population is strong in this area of SC MN and no sign of major habitat loss at this point. Many of the real good core areas in the LeSueur watershed are in CREP and we're seeing the results. We have a rooster that spends most of his time in the backyard plum thicket and commences crowing at 5:15 AM. There were 4 hens with him a couple days ago. Lucky sucker!

I am suprised at the number of birds I have been seeing as of late. I thought that there were next to none left, but have been seeing many as of late. I hope its not to wet of a spring.

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
