What was that? Who died and made you King? All the kid wanted to do was ask a question/ask for help. What in the world is wrong with that? I think you need to lay off.

Hey H/F Kid,
I've been doing some hunting on public land as well, and it too has been slow for me. I'm hunting in So. Mn, so all the water in the fields is really spreading the waterfowl out. Good Luck

All I hunt is public water, but not usually WMA's. I usually hunt the small lakes/sloughs that are surrounded by cattails. So far we've been doing just fair. There are plenty of public waters to hunt if you have a small boat. Good luck!

Duckbill, try to be little more polite, we're FMers not MFers!

All I ever duck hunt is public land! I've been so busy this fall I haven't gotten out yet but the next 3 weekends are good to go.

From the last many previous years, we've noticed a very good opening weekend and than about a 2-3 week lull in birds and then they start picking up again. MEA weekend, which is a couple weeks away, has typically been one of our better weekends.

I live for late season waterfowling and my younger brother does too. He was hunting late in the season last year, where only the big waters are open, and did outstanding!! He's got a pair of awesome Goldeneyes coming back from the taxidermist from one of those days. BUT, you have to put up with breaking ice, cold weather, snow, and did I mention freezing your a$$ off! But to me, thats what duck hunting is about!

When it comes to public land, I personally feel you have to think a little bit differently from the other hunters, and possibly work a little bit harder too. Uhhh, let me rephrase that- WORK ALOT HARDER!

You have to scope out the places that are harder to get to, etc. Anybody can hunt a slough or lake right off the road, but if that slough or lake is a mile away from the road, that will discourage alot of hunters. Some of our best spots take ALOT of work to get out to them. But all that preparation typically pays off in the end.

The question as is stands now is fine but if you look at the post and notice it has been edited. There was a statement on there that was not called for. No I am not god but singling out certain races of people and saying that they skybusting more that anyone else is an ignorant statement.

I drove for about 3 hours Saturday morning checking public lands and lakes and couldnt find #'s birds anywhere. Hopefully with this cold front comming, that will push some of the northern birds down.

    • If you fish the river it could. Ive done it and seen it done multple times. Hit a log that is.
    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!
