Snowshoe Hare Hunt

Recommended Posts

Taking a winter snowshoe hare is on my bucket list, any tips or pointers? During deer season i seen some tracks on my land by willow river, is that a good area or do I need to go farther north? Anyone interested in doing a trip/ hunt?

I use to hunt them a lot with the 10-22 and scope. I always did best in low, thick, Pine stands.  Good luck. 🙂

I used to hunt them alot too. We did best near swamps or river bottoms, around beaver ponds and edges of popple slashes. Haven't seen hardly any last 2 years in N.Mn. Predators have been hard on them.

That is why I pretty much gave up on hunting them since the predators were cleaning them up pretty well. I contacted the DNR once and asked about it and the said they really don't manage rabbits plus their on the bottom of the 10 year cycle!  Bla, Bla, Bla, the same thing they say about everything. That was about 12 years go........so. 🙄

The one I saw in my driveway last year was the first I’d seen in a pretty long while in MN too.  

 

We used to have good numbers in the Pine River area, oh, 30 years ago.  I think I recall hearing their area was shrinking / moving north for this or that reason.  Low/no snow seasons may have been cited.

 

I think I saw one Saturday night in Devils Lake.  It was white and didn’t quite size up to a jack rabbit.  Weird; now thinking about it, it’s been odd to see a snowshoe hare.  Not quite the thrill of seeing a moose on Friday but I still find them cool to look at.

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.

    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
