You need to scout, scout and scout some more.

Then get your Plat Book and find out who owns the fields.

Contact them and try to get permission.

Early season geese will be in cut sweetcorn fields, Hay fields, and cut oat fields.

Or you can hunt them on the water.

I would guess you will run into difficulty scouting on the internet.

Good luck finding land in Surburne, Wright, Hennipen, and Carver counties. You need to know people really well or have lots of $$$$. A sweet corn field in the Monticello area went for $500 a day and it was leased everyday for the whole early season.

you can't be serious. you just want someone to do all the leg work for you and show up with your gun and have geese landing at your feet. Get out there and put some miles on thats the only way to get it done

That sweet corn field you are talking about it lease by a guide service and i know he will make that money back. I have no problem getting fields in wright and sherburn county.

My best advice is be friendly to the farmers when asking permission and offer to help them out if they need it. It's the little things that count with these guys.

Or you could just have ins with the farmers on the fields:)

I have access to a trailer full of bigfoots and a buddy with a mix of full bodies and shells.

Just need a field and someone willing to let us hunt with them.

Sounds good RumRiverRat. I have a trailer full of decoys too. Whats your email address and we can stay in contact. With work being a little slow, I get to hunt more during the week and the weekends.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
