I am looking for a peice of land to hunt a couple times this season. I grew up with land to hunt on now that I live in the cities I have no where to go. Can any one point me in a directon besides the game farms? I would be open to a lease in needed.

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.

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
