Devil's Lake duck hunting?

4 posts in this topic

We are thinking about a four day duck hunt near Devil's Lake. Need to find a small pothole that is easily accessible for fat old retired guys. If we have to pay it can't cost much.

Any general suggestions for duck hunting in that area in mid-October? Appreciate any help.

Why not Devil's lake it self? I never hunted it but my Tax man used to guide it and said that mid to more late oct. is some of the best duck hunting around and he also said to bring the fishin rod and rapalas and be ready for the really big walleyes and he was talking about fishing from shore.

I'm thinking of a trip out there for MEA week with the kids then a trip hopefully around halloween.

Check out Lakota Lodge in Lakota. It's just west of devils lake. Crazy cheap lodging with tons of waterfowl hunting close by. I see it's for sale now but it might still be up and running. If it is talk to Gene there. He's a great guy and might be be able to point you in the right direction as far as where the birds are. A hand full of years back he hooked me up with a private landowner and had the snow goose and greenhead shoot of a lifetime. That whole area up to Langdon is waterfowlers paradise.

Thanks you guys. Am still looking. I'd like to try to Devil's Lake area but am a little nervous about finding a pothole to use. We are too old and beat up to do much hiking around with a hundred pounds of stuff on our back etc.

I have been through that area and it DOES look like it should hold a duck or two.

I'll keep on looking and phone calling.

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
