Would like information from the Alexandria area.

14 posts in this topic

I was just curious if many have been seeing or hearing coyotes and fox in the immediate area. If anyone has problems with the overpopulation of these predators on their land go ahead and shoot me an email to cwellefson@gmail.com and we will do our best (2 guys) to take care of them. We do not use dogs, it is mostly calling, and some sit and stalk, we are very responsible and check in before and after each hunt.

Thank you

Hi Tanner,

I was wondering if it is alright for my buddy to tag along with you and I. He is more of the caller. If this is possible then I would say it is a go as far as hooking up sometime.

if you come up here you should get here before christmas. theres a group of 15-20 guy that surround a section and drive it with people and dogs and run the coyotes out and the standers on the gravel roads blast the heck out of them. they claim they got around 150 of them last year by osakis. i'm sure its an exageration but its their style of hunting, it makes it hard for guys like me who try to call them in. theres also another large group by parkers prarie who hunt the same way. both groups usually start about christmas or when theres snow.

Yep, I have heard of the Osakis boys! Also heard they trespass quite often. Some farmers in the area (specifically by the Forada swamp) said they are going to keep a keen eye out this year and turn them in if they or their dogs step foot on their land! It makes it alot more difficult for the real sportsmen to get out and get a coyote when they are all educated the easy way. Doesn't take a whole lot for them to let their dogs out to push the whole section, (whether they have permission on certaqin parcels of land or not) and have a coyote run their way while posted on the road or legally in the ditch. I have seen them in action from a distance. Hopefully if there is one of the Osakis boys reading this, they take fair warning about people watching them, including myself. Not to mention the local game warden has been notified of their wrongdoings.

Now it's making sense,that used to be a good area to hunt.Bummer is, it makes it that much harder for respectable hunters to gain permission.

Exactly the situation I have run into. All it takes is one bad scenerio to take place.

I am not TRYING to point fingers but those who do it "sometimes illegally" are the ones who can ruin it for all of us.

Still a motherlode of yotes around LQP and Dawson areas. I suppose you are too good to hunt down there anymore.

There are NO coyotes or fox around the Alexandria, Osakis or Parkers Prairie areas. Just thought I'd let you know that. laugh

    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
    • We are on Lake Edward at WildWoods RV resort just north of Merrifield, MN. It is nice just driving up, unlocking it, playing for the weekend and locker her back up and leaving the frig on.  They let Atheists and Jesus freaks all in!
    •   My wife and I are starting to think about parking ours someplace. I'm tired of trying to get reservations and having to hook and unhook and all that goes with a weekend of camping. Plus I would like to have the toys available like 4-wheeler and boat.   We are looking at places up north. We know several people and like the Emily-Outing-Remer-Hill City area. I think you a further west, right? Brainerd area maybe?
