I hunt mainly Deer and turkeys. Will get out from time to time and chase a few pheasants. Plenty of deer in the state, if you know where to go and have access to hunting land, either public or private.
Hello, Another MN hunter here. I'm in Wadena. I hunt mostly deer and bear, don't have time for much more than that. I do get a few grouse when I'm up north bear hunting. And I think I would like to try for turkey. I'm retired military and currently a Realtor, so if you or anyone you know is looking for hunting land, let me know and I'll track it down for you. I like nothing better that to walk through new hunting lands.
Welcome, I live in North central Minnesota. I am pretty much a bear bum. My "hobby" for years has been studying habits and habitat of mature boar Black Bear in Northern Minnesota. I still do some deer hunting but spend much of that season guiding family members.
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
