Happy waterfowl season opener! Early Teal and early goose seasons in Minnesota open up this weekend, while seasons in North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin continue. In honor of that, we talked to John Devney from Delta Waterfowl to get a waterfowl season outlook.
We talk about how waterfowl breeding conditions were, what duck numbers look like and what needs to happen to get better waterfowl habitat. He talks about what water on the prairies can do for ducks and if you can ever have too much. He also discusses what effect the avian influenza might’ve had on the snow goose hatch, and what the rules are on bringing ducks and geese back home from Canada. Regardless, it’s going to be a fun waterfowl season!
Then Joe Henry joins the show to talk about a unique cast and blast opportunity at Lake of the Woods. He discusses how you can shoot 3 different species of grouse, and there’s a ton of public land for hunters to wander. Of course there’s the chance to catch a pile of walleyes while you do it!
Garett Svir from Slab Seeker Fishing is back to discuss fall crappie fishing in Otter Tail Lakes Country, along with chasing big brown trout at night on the Brule River. He discusses his recent trip to the Brule, along with how he’s getting ready for steelhead season. He talks about what kind of gear to use. Garett also tells us how people can get ahold of him if anyone else is interested in chasing steelhead along the North Shore.
