Looking for other waterfowlers in Wright County

Recommended Posts

Morning all,

Here's a little background: I've been hunting waterfowl for a few years now and have recently relocated to the Montrose area (south of Buffalo and West of Delano). I try to be as responsible as possible while hunting, yet still try to have some fun. I don't know many people in the area and don't have any real "spots" picked out yet. I'm looking for someone (or a group) to go waterfowling with. I'm a pretty decent caller, nothing fancy but good at the basics. If you know of or have land I'd be willing to work for permission to hunt. I'm planning on hitting early goose pretty hard and then a weekend or two in Oct for regular season. I'm up for land or water hunting. I've got two dogs that are trained for waterfowl, my own boat and motor (hopefully will be running by early goose opener), 2 dozen goose dekes (I think I can borrow about a dozen more), and a blind on the boat.

Let me know if anyone is up for it!

Hey jwhawkridge

I'm moving back to the cities from Brainerd. I grew up around Monticello don't have any private land to go on but have a lot of decent public land spots around Monticello and Morris I hunt. Myself I'm looking to move around the Rockford,Delano, maybe Montrose area. I have a dog a running boat with blind, too many decoys and wouldn't mind going out a couple times. Drop me a line maybe sometime [email protected]

Later

I went to High School in Buffalo and hunted the Montrose area a bit. I know my buddies had some pretty good Canada hunts around there. Right outside of town there is a giant WMA that we hunted a few times. Its hard as heck to get out to water because there are about 200 yards of cattails to drag your gear through, but it does hold ducks. The only problem is that there are just enough crazy guys to haul their gear that far to keep the birds under fairly steady pressure. Other than that, it's just a matter of putting some miles down and seeing what the land has to offer. I know it's really been built up since I hunted there not even 6 years ago, but there ought to be spots around. My advice is this: the further you get out of the cities, the better the hunting will be.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
