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.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
