there is a really small public field south of stillwater it was corn last year... they only harvest half the field.

carlos avery might have some but it could be within refuge areas. get online and do some homework www.dnr.state.mn.us search the site for "recreation compass" you can use that to search by city and drag etc. until you find clearly marked WMAs.

then you can click on the "i" icon on the top toolbar... then just click on the WMA you want "info" about and you can view regulation info and an interactive map. On this map crop lands are clearly marked as darked brown so you can see "public fields" Good Luck and Good Hunting

most of the them dont even get harvested they are used for food plots, however good luck if you find one cut.

To be honest, to expect anything worth while w/in 30 miles of Lakeville as far as public field hunting goes,,, good luck...

You need to put some miles under your butt and do some scouting and get to knocking on some doors of landowners. Its not cheap or easy.

If you are willing to hunt water you might get a little more lucky and not have to drive so far, but often you are crowded, have to time the migration, or will have a tough time replicating the numbers that can be stacked up on a good wheat field this time of year.

Good hunters don't just have cool gear, they usually they are the most dedicated hard scouting bunch out there. Or.. they are like my friends and they just cling on and let me run around like an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly and find all the "ins" for them...

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..
    • I'm in, in zone 13
    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.  
    • congrats to your dad Borch!
    • That's from the Trailer Park Boys. A hideous beast.
    • Nice work Borch for you and your dad. Congrats . I have been seeing a lot of strutters of the weekend . Those 20 gauges are awesome sure put a hurting on .
    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
