Any birds around the Aitkin area?

Recommended Posts

This is my first post on this HSOforum. Opener was better than usual my brother and I got seventeen ten on Saturday and seven on Sunday. The rest of our camp totaled around 20 between three other groups. Our bag consisted of a mix of GWT, Ringers, mallards, BWT and woodies. Once again had to watch parties shooting at ducks way out of range(up to 150 yards), shoot early, and not chase their cripples. It would be great if everyone was ethical hunters. Anyways since openers there haven’t been many birds around only averaging a couple per morning. Just wondering if anyone knows of anything in the area. Let me know if you do. I don’t think much will happen till we get some weather up north. Good luck and remember shoot em in the face.

We had a good opener up there too getting bwt, gwt, woodies, ringers, mallards and a bonus lesser bluebill. I was up there on Wednesday morning and there were a few ringers around and I did see a couple of buffleheads and some geese. My guess is that starting in a week or too some northern birds will start moving in but it is gonna take some more cold fronts to get it started.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
