waterfowling the rivers

4 posts in this topic

does anyone hunt on the banks or sand bars of the rivers near the metro ... i guess you could say jumping ducks off the river. how are people going about hunting the rivers. decoys? boats and jump them to shoot .. just wondering what others have come up with to have an effective hunt out there!

the river has been scouted pretty heavily from shakopee to belle plaine, i am sure all the good inlets and outlets are going to have someone in them.

i know that people have been getting chased off a sandbar in shakopee so i would avoid that, there has been discussion on wheter the sandbar is public??

would be nice to roll up on 100 geese on a sandbar though wouldnt it?

we hunt on the minnesota river in savage and we usually just throw out about 1 dozen mallards if not any. we just sit up on the river bluffs and shoot them as they come racing down the river. we usually do pretty good. sometimes if they come floating down river we will scare them up once they get in front of them and blast them. we either get a dog to retrieve it, someone on a canoe, or we wait for them to float ti shore (where we hunt we hunt on the outside of a huge bend so they usually end up floating to our side by the current).

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
