Best hunt ever!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

This weekend I had the best hunt of my life. I planned on meeting up with a buddy that has access to a lot of land. He was out of town for the first day, but I managed to get quite a few divers on my own. The 2nd day we saw thousands of geese, and limited out in a corn field. The last 2 days we field hunted mallards. That was the best hunting I have ever had. At one point we had about 200 mallard land just outside of our deeks. We adjusted our deeks, and the mallards were right on top of us. The area is loaded with thousands of geese, not as many mallards yet. We just got lucky to be able to hunt the land that we scouted. I am still having dreams of mallards landing on top of me.

You should not name areas in your posts. Can't you just say that you had a good hunt? You should edit this post.

its generally known that town x holds honkers, but naming areas your hunting is really getting frowned upon on public forums. ive been guilty of it before, but hearing 1 hunter show up in your spot and saying "found out about this spot from some guy on the internet" will make you rethink how you post. congrats on a great hunt though.

Not a huge deal, its just that it gets harder and harder to get access to land when more and more people decide to flock to the areas.

Congrats on the good hunt, and I'd love to see some pics of the hunt. Its hard to bee a good goose/mallard combo field hunt.

ZEEK,

Get over it. It is not exactly a big "secret" spot. They were there last, this year and they will be back next year.

I never meant to upset anyone, I dont feel that saying "near Fergus" is really giving a spot away.

Yeah I agree, "near Fergus" is not a great discription. Some people just think the birds belong to them, and no one else should get a chance to shoot em.

On the flip side.........They probably arn't "near Fergus" anymore

    • Good idea but I have 1 multiple feeder so that’s where the ground birds are. I tried wiping the post down with the repellent but that stunk too. Might need to do two feeders. 
    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
