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.

    • Last weekend spent some time re-sealing a small seam leak on a trim edge. Found out the owner before us had a leak on the same trim edge spot and left out a screw!! Also washed down the canopy and the ever reoccurring black streaks around the roof edge.   This weekend may go back and clean out and reseal a few other areas the passed own made a mess of sealing with sillycone! Using Butyl rubber this time as silicone can be pulled right off after a few years.
    • Lots of talk on sports radio and social media lately on whether the Wolves should workout a deal that sends Wiggins to Cleveland for Kyrie. Of course there would likely be some other bit players involved to make contracts work, but for all intents and purposes it's Wiggins for Kyrie.   As a fan, would you do it, yes or no?   I'm personally leaning toward "no." Kyrie is very good and still young. But he doesn't seem to offer much beyond scoring - not a prolific assist guy and his defense has never stood out. Perhaps most importantly, if reports are true and one of the main reasons he wants to leave Cleveland is so he can be the primary star on his own team - that makes me question what type of leader, team player, and locker room presence he would be. Say what you want about Lebron, but on the court he seems like an ideal teammate, almost too willing to make the extra pass. And Cleveland still has one of the best routes back to the Finals, why would you want to get away from that?
      Wiggins certainly has his faults, but he is a dynamite scorer. His defensive is poor, but at least the tools are there to be a good defender. If we lose him we also have a pretty big hole to fill on our roster. Whereas right now we have what appears to be a solid PG in Teague.    I wouldn't hate it if we landed Kyrie, but with our current situation I prefer Wiggins. All in all though, it's certainly fun to finally be in a situation where stars want to play here, not avoid Minny at all costs.
    • For many years my dad, uncles, etc have been heading to the Leech Lake area every spring and fall to fish for walleyes. There are usually 8-10 guys that go. Many of them are from the Barron, Wisconsin area. Since I've never really fished in Wisconsin, thought it might be fun to head to there one of these trips. Have always heard the Hayward area is pristine. Does anyone have a favorite lake, or possibly a favorite resort in the area I should add to the list when doing some research?  Walleyes are the only thing these guys are after.   I know there is a Wisconsin form, but it seems kind of quiet over there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions here.    
    • Well except for the owner. He's kinda ancient!!   We did the same thing with the frig to Dave on the first camper we had.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires.
