Join the club Jesse.. I grew up in the cities which means I never had a place to hunt..Had to get lucky to have the ones I have now .....My advice.....Make a ton of friends chat guys up at every bar you go to or anytime you get the chance to.. Try to find people who enjoy hunting like you do and eventually if you are lucky you'll make connections and gain access to some spots..Or you can just do what I do most of the time and head North to the millions of acres of public grouse woods where you don't need to know or owe anyone..Sorry that's not much help and good luck....uplander

CHeck out the DNR"s rec compass. It lists all the public land in MN using google maps. Its a great resource.

Otherwise you're gonna have to burns some gas, wear some boot soles out and start knockin.

You can buy public rec maps at outdoors stores like Gander for about $5, and it shows all the WMA's and WPA'a in the state. Quite a few within 30-60 minutes away from the cities in various directions. I've hunted some around Hugo, Wyoming, Elko/New Market, etc. There are some I passed up that are even closer, figured those would be hit even harder. Not gonna flush a ton of birds cause they get pressured pretty hard, but it's always worth a shot.

    • The question was in regards to doors. As for breaking glass and entering the home I will remind you that locks only keep honest people out, if someone wants to get in to your house they will. Del you always have a comment that is not relevant to the topic being discussed. Matter of fact you have a comment on everything posted. So my glass door on my house has been there for thirty years and guess what Del... no one has broken it yet!
    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/

    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.
