minnesota hunting

Recommended Posts

Welcome huskers
Dont know exactly what that guy was thinking but i wouldve at least been pleasant enough to pour some of my doe in heat scent in the front seat of his vehicle to return the favor. My suggestion to you would be to go north, if that is not possible, maybe talk to some farmers in the area you hunt and they might be willing to let a person hunt their land.Good luck. I know of plenty of public land the state has to offer in the northern part if you need some suggestions.

i just read philo's entry and am in about the same boat. I moved to minnesota from Kansas ( where hunting land and permission was plentiful) about 4 years ago and am very discouraged with the hunting and fishing situation. In my first couple of years hunting in the Mankato, St. James area I ran into the same problems that a lot of the people in the forum have mentioned. For the most part Minnesotan's are respectful and ethical hunters. However, I haven't met any of these on public hunting lands.
Last year, while hunting public land near St. James I slowly climbed down from a tree I was in to slow hunt a thicket area in front of me. When I was about 20 yards from the stand I was in (where my stuff was) a guy ran up jumped in the tree and threw my bag on the ground. At this point I am looking for some land to lease in order to get away from that nonsense. Any suggestions are welcomed.

I live in Twin Cities and close hunting land is not easy to come by. In my oppinion most public land nearbye is overhunted and I don't really bother except for maybe crow. That's why I primarily hunt northern Minn. Also I mainly hunt grouse so that strategy works well anyway.

Hey Huskerfootball
I have hunted Kansas a few times and am curious where you hunted down there and if you still hunt there? I grew up south of Mankato and may be able to give you some suggestions. Send me a private email. gl7mm
