Looking for Goose/Duck hunting land in Lakeville area

Recommended Posts

I just moved to the Lakville/Farmington area this year and I am looking for areas to Goose & Duck hunt. If anybody knows of farmers that allow people out on there fields and I could contact them. That would really help out. I am not use to looking for new places to hunt. I hunted on the family farm before I moved to Lakeville.

Anything would help.

Thank you

Here is some advice no one is going to give out their spots over the internet, or people that you could contact for land. Just go out and scout like everyone else once you find a concentration of waterfowl knock on their door and ask if you can hunt until someone grants you permission.

I wish you luck in finding land in the Twin Cities to hunt. Its become next to impossible and I can sympathize with landowners. A person you don't know approaches your home with a request to return armed. Most of the land has been split into smaller parcels which adds another challenge. Your best bet it to hopefully meet a few people through your church, school, sports, work etc and parlay that into opportunities. Otherwise I would say try to drive farther out from the Twin Cities to both public areas and also try to secure private property there as well though that is very difficult as well. Personally I see hunting fading away not due to lack of interest but lack of access.

Unless you have very deep pockets, you won't be hunting in fields anywhere near lakeville or farmington. Unless you personally know somebody, your chances are near zero. If you head further away from town your chances will go up. Be prepared to drive, hunt water, or make some friends. I have two fields I can hunt in that area. It took years of patience to get them, and I still can only hint them on days other people who have first dibs aren't hunting. Unless you are rich or don't mind driving 50 plus miles, I would learn to hunt water.

Pretty much agree with what everyone else says. My family farms in/near lakeville and we get hit up all the time and its a pretty clear answer when two labs come running up and theres camo on the line! wink

I would try to get involved with others maybe visit a local pub on a basis and get to know the locals they know alot of people!

fyi my location refers to college location!
