1. Migration questions
I mainly hunt anywhere south of the metro in South-Central MN. As far as duck hunting goes, is it mainly just the first week or two of the season that is good? It’s my understanding that there’s some local ducks but not much of a migration that comes through, so once the residents are blasted or chased out not many come to replace them. It seems most of the ducks migrate through far western MN N/S Dakota or down the Mississippi river?
2. Scouting questions
I’ve hunted with some good hunters on the ole’ Miss and out in ND, but for scouting farm country in MN do you have any tips? I’m guessing just driving around and looking for good marshes with some ducks in them? I have a jon boat, but it’s a lot of weight that I need a boat ramp to launch it. I’m an average duck hunter, go 3-4 times a year with a sack of decoys and hunt alone or with one buddy. Any general tips/advice appreciated. Feel free to PM me too if you want.
Thanks, I’m looking forward to getting the waders on this fall and hopefully hunting more than I have in the past
