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).
