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...

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!
    • You guys need to start an HSO drama club..    
    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
