Hutchinson Report ***Updated***

7 posts in this topic

Anyone been out by Hutchinson? I'm thinking about heading there this week. What's the corn situation?

***Another Update*** Was out today 12/5/08 kicked up 6 Hens, 1 Rooster all of the Hens in the thickest Cattails I could find, and the one Rooster was running on me in a Ravine.

***Update*** Was out just south of Hutchinson in a few WMAs and WPAs, alot of the corn is down, and the cattails are just freezing up. We put up 9 hens, and 1 rooster, almost all out of range, didn't even take a shot. I thought I would have seen more in the cattails, but most of them were in the groves. I have a young pointer, and he didn't even get close to them, real spooky birds. It was fun, I just wish I could have got the pup's nose on top of a bird.

I had one hen get up and cross the road right in front of a car, I think the lady driving thought I was going to shoot her, you should have seen her face. I could only image what her expression would have been like had I actually shouldered my gun.

Safe Huntin'

I have been out that way a couple of times. There is still some corn standing but they were hard at it Sunday. I haven't seen many birds in the area though. I am not sure how it was in past years since I am new to MN pheasant hunting. I am still trying to figure out where to go in this state.

There is some state land between hutch and biscay that has produced for me couple times this year. When i hunted it there was still a lot of corn around there yet. But i'm assuming if its not gone already it shouldn't be long. Might as well give it a shot. Your not gonna shoot anything otherwise.
