I just got a call today asking me to go work near spencer iowa. I will be headed out tuesday and starting work on wednesday.My issue with this is minnesota deer season starts saturday so I will be missing most of the season. I will be bringing my shotgun, rifle, and muzzleloader as well as a bow.

I am hoping someone can help me with land to hunt for pheasant and or deer. Public or private doesnt matter as long as it wont be a waste of time since I will only have 1 or 2 days off a week. Thanks

Lots of public ground around Spencer, Dickenson county alone has something like 40,000+ acres of public hunting ground. IGL's are also great fishing don't forget to bring a pole. I live 15 miles north of there in Milford be happy to show you around or answer any questions. Not much into hunting anymore but good pheasant hunting in the area.

All Iowa is shotgun but being your a non res unless you applied for a tag your SOL. I think applications are due in April. Plenty of birds to chase but get pressured. I would bring the rods and forget the hunting LOL Great fishing year round if thats your thing. Walleyes, smallmouth, muskies and about everything else. Great ice fishing for giant gills sight fishing. Can't beat gin clear water for ice fishing.

May want to add the auger and ice shack to the list LOL. What kind of work are you doing down here? Plenty of shore access, eyes have been being had by the guys wading and fishing the bridges in the evenings. I'm on the lake every weekend mainly after the elusive muskie but a guy gets hungery at times and I'll fish for supper.

    • 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. .
