ne thing is possible just bring lots of decoys and park close to a raft of divers they will be buzzing the shorelines if they see other white ducks, sometimes you can shoot at the same flock of white ducks a few times if you stick it out. robo robo robo when its legal the divers love those things had a ringer actually try to land on one of my floaters last year

careful where you set up...if you're on the indian's land you'll probably get in big trouble for potentially harming their "hunts"...even without bag limits or "seasons" they'd probably still burn your truck to the ground if you kept them from shooting just a few more...

Now thats funny! Yes I was wondering the same thing about ducks on Red lake. Im actually going up there in Oct to try the fishing but heck might as well throw the gun in to. I would actually like to get a report from someone that has hunted it. When I fished it i didnt see a whole lot of cover for duck hunting though?

You can hunt URL on the non reservation side with no problems. Just make sure you have enough boat and motor to handle the weather.

Also I believe the Petrowskes run duck hunts later in the season on some rice fields.

As far as hunting the reservation you can hunt the rez with all state and fed licenses, a tribal license and a band member guide. However most of that is done down in the Keywahsay (sp?) area towards Clearbrook on the rice fields.

As far as the burning of vehicles and other comments give me a break. Yes bad things happen on the reservation however with a guide and following their rules your more likely to have something happen in the metro then the reservation. For those that do not know the reservation does have seasons and limits in place and CO's to enforce those regulations.

For more information on hunting the reservation call the Red Lake DNR at 218-679-3959 or the Red Lake COnservation Officers at 218-679-3313.

I belive the tribal license is $50.00.

You will not be allowed to hunt on the Lower Red Lake or on tribal side of URL but there are a ton of other areas.

Drift- If I were to hunt on the rez for geese on some fields I could get permission from for the early goose season... I can get a tribal license for whatever fee? If so, does this take some kind of process to get the license? Thanks.

Drift thanks for the advise it is very helpful. It sounds like we might very well check into doing some diver hunting while we are up there this fall. Thanks again

Just contact teh Red Lake DNR and get a tribal license, then ask who they recommend for a guide. I know Gary Sargent used to guide for geese.

Several of the band members up there are very good voice callers and do not use a conventional call of any sort.

If the DNR does not have an current guide list call the Red Lake Co's they can give you names of some folks.

Just remember that your in their world and be respectful and you will have a good time.

    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.        
    • Volume wise it cuts the same as any othe 8" auger.  Does the Nils make finer chips than others?   I never saw the issue the few times I used mine.  Can you reverse the drill and push the slush down the hole.?
    • Sorry, but Ive had enough of the indepedent/liberturd fence sitter crowd pissing down their righteousness on reality.
    •   Makes no difference what place we are in or that Stall has scored 2 goals in the last 5 games (you call that bunches?).....who would not want to play the Wild in the first round at this point?  This is absolutley shocking to me....they appear to me like a ship without a Captain....7 games left to figure it out.
    •   I go fishing here whenever I need a laugh.  They are always biting.......well the big fat Sucker Fish anyway.
    • i have seen more useless products succeed, but I can't see a practical use for this thing. I do agree with the icing aspect as well as the battery life. U better have a option to free spool this. 
    • Bearsheet4brains to the rescue.    
    •   Then the bad wookies landed, trying to get everyone to believe they were gods and could cure everything with their magical potions, driving a few totally batpoop. Pretty soon there was name calling and bashing, and it just went on and on. Others that were smart left, and the ones still there continued arguing about what kind of people and things were better, with no respect for anyone or anything, since the gods no longer stepped in and stopped it, except to change words that had no meaning anyway. Pretty soon, it was all arguing wookies and people and other creatures, until the land of the forum exploded, throwing all the creatures spinning  out into space, where they formed their own little galaxies, and soon they all  started arguing and preaching and complaining and.....
    • Here is how the math works out on the 100 holes per day.  First off, not every hole gets fished.  Secondly, I am not just drilling holes for myself.  When I am with my kids or an older person or fishing partners who don't understand where the holes need to located on a particular area I might drill all the holes for 4 people to hole hop.  Thirdly, ice thickness plays a roll.  I will drill many more holes in a day on 16" of ice than 30".  I know this may be hard for some to understand but some people really truly actually will drill 100 holes in a day.  I am a very crafty ice fisherman who has adapted to extreme cold weather by using a portable "flip over" shelter and propane heater to keep myself warm and my equipment from icing up.  Yes, even when hole hopping.  That's why they call it a portable.  Haha.
