Duck hunting on Upper Red Lk

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
