minnesota spring goose hunt

Recommended Posts

seen an article in the paper about a mn spring goose hunt. known about the dakota hunts for a while, never tried it yet but would like to maybe do mn. would it be worth a try by lac laparle or around dawson?

unless you live in the area or have lots of land access down there, it is probably in your best interest to drive an hour further into SD, get the $45 license, and make it worthwhile. The numbers of birds you will encounter won't even compare and your chances for success will increase tenfold. I'm not saying you can't kill birds in MN, I'm just saying that realistically it would make a lot more sense to drive another 60 miles and be in the thick of things.

i will second that....unless theres a big front pushing the birds out of south dakotas james river valley more than likely the minnesota action is spotty at best. my best luck with minnesota birds has been finding them starting around correll, up towards lake artichoke. but its no where near the action a guy can have in south dakota. i would get in touch with the la qui parle refuge or the big stone refuge during the migration to see if there are reports of any birds.

What they said.

On the other hand, livin in SW MN has some advantages as I've shot a lot of geese in the spring season. However, I live here and I'm here all the time and I know a lot of land owners who let me hunt their fields.

If I was going to go on a trip, like drive a while and spend a little $$$, I'd hit Sodak.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
