Was anyone on Pelican near Monticello this weekend? How was it?

4 posts in this topic

I did not go to Pelican this weekend, although I was wondering how hunters did out there. How crowded was it? How was the hunting?

Lots of teal and woodies before 9. Not as many ducks flying after 9 as past years. This was the first year that somebody has beaten me to our spot and they shot at way too many birds out of range. We were about 300yds away and most of the birds that they shot at flew away from us. We were off the lake at 11:30 with 2 woodies and 2 teal. Sunday was rainy and there was lightning off to the east. Loud thunder and lightning approaching forced us off by 9am. We were hit by a down pour at the landing. We never fired a shot on Sunday. The lake was down about a foot and the landing was not as crowded as it has been it the past. I will be going back on Wednesday.

We also could not get to our "Spot", The crowd was way down from last year but the shooting was on par. You would think with the price of shells that people would learn to let the ducks get closer after 2-3 boxes burned, but I guess not. 1 woodie, 1 teal Sat. none on Sunday. Only fired 4 shots total.Not a lot of ducks and only seen 4 honkers a mile up.

I had some buddies that went out there on friday and camped til the opener on saturday. They claim they shot 7 mallards?? I think they are just telling me that to make it look like it was worth the wait. He said when they left saturday that there had to have been at least 70 trucks/trailers at the landing? These guys hunted off the island, were they sky busting, if so I will have to give them some [PoorWordUsage]?

    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
    •   Unfortunately, we just don't know when that will be (injury, free agency, etc.), and by the time they wind down someone else will have already taken their place. More to the point, we need to get to the dance a few times before we will be a threat to the likes of GS, or anyone else for that matter. Get these young guys some playoff experience, continue to build, and add pieces wherever and whenever we can. Keep moving ahead, that's all we can do. It's a cliche, but we can't control what other teams do...only what we do, and I think we are making good decisions with players and personnel lately.
