Pheasant Hunting Weekend of November 1 & 2

Recommended Posts

My son and I will be heading down to SW MN on Saturday morning, November 1st. Just wondering if anybody wants to get together and do a little pheasant hunting. We have a 2 year old Britt that loves to hunt. We like a party of 3-4. Anybody interested?

Hoffman, Herman, Norcross, Donnelly, Chokio.....around there or further south. We are coming from the Baxter/Brainerd area so will leave in the morning and drive back in the evening.

Hey mnuser, I am orignally from Norcross, I will be hunting this weekend (finally) The reports I have heard are not too good, it sounds like the numbers are way down. Also there is still a lot of the crops in and it has been raining for the last 18 hours so, it is hard to say how things will turn out. Shoot me your email and I can give you an update.

My family has some land about 2 miles from Norcross. It is along the Mustinka (sp) River.

I was down over opener. We saw a few birds but most were young. I was out in ND for five days and we saw a ton. I wish the drive was less and the license was good for the whole season.

Thanks. Keep me updated.

We would be glad to join you but our hunting group is going back to ND for the second part of our license this weekend. Perhaps later in the season? By the way, I live in the Brainerd-Baxter area so would be easy for travel.

ReelTimes,

Drop me an email sometime and we can run down for the day. We head down early in the morning and come back in the evening. It is just me, my 11 year old son and the hunt'in dog, Beau. Once it gets cold, the 11 year old bails on me.

Good luck this weekend in ND. Where in ND do you go?

I will drop you an email. In ND, we will be down by Ellendale, which is well south of Jamestown down by the SD border.

Hey MNUser - I'm thinking about committing to hooking up with you, your son and your Britt if you're still planning on making the trip. It would be a 400 mile round trip for me and my Britt to meet up with you. We have a couple of spots close to home we've been hunting, but, we would like to head west or maybe even down south of Marshall while the weather is good and gas is reasonable. Let me know if you are still planning on making the trip.

Hey Wild Willie,

Nick and I are hooking up with another guy and his son on Saturday. We will be going done a few more times this Fall/Winter. Keep in touch and we will see what we can arrange.

I'm surprised how much response I got. I would love to make some other hunting friendships. It is always nice meeting new people.

JIM

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
