One of the hottest hunting areas in Minnesota in Fergus Falls. Being a major staging area for waterfowl migrating from Canada and northern Minnesota, Fergus Falls has open water year round thanks to our friends at Ottertail Power. They have a coal burning, electricity producing plant that dumps warm water from there cooling towers into the Ottertail River, which in turn keeps the river open from the plant all thru town. Orwell Dam area will stage geese above the dam late into the season also.
We offer a variety of hunting opportunities during our hunting season... From field hunting Canada geese, to hunting a huge water spread. We also offer duck hunts for Mallards in the corn fields also. Fergus Falls, MN has a variety of eating, drinking establishments and Hotel/Motels to chose from while hunting here. Fergus Falls is a quiet town located on the edge of the prairies, and lakes area. It is located 2.5hrs north west of The Minneapolis / St Paul, MN area, and 1hr south east of Fargo, ND.
We only use the best money can buy!!! I run all Clinton Bigfoot full body and floaters for for the September and regular season. In December I will deploy my secret weapons, but I will still be using my Bigfoots also. We will be hunting out of either Final Approach s.u.b.s hay bale blinds, or blinds that I have set up at an earlier time. I use the Flagman Flags and Kites.
We kick off the early September Fergus Falls, MN goose season the first weekend of September. The resident season usually runs 20 consecutive days with a 5 goose limit. We hunt wheat stubble, alfalfa, grass/turf fields and water. The water hunts usually take place when we are anticipating a north/ northwest wind. This brings the molting birds that have flown north to return to the Fergus Falls, MN area. On these days, the birds usually fly later, but they will fly all afternoon. September weather can bring the best and worst. So expect warm weather, to mildly cold, and rain too! Don`t forget the bug spray either!!! Our early September Fergus Falls, MN resident goose season is often refereed to as the "mosquito hunt". The birds will feed twice a day, but when its really warm, the birds will feed until 9-10am, then they return to there roosts until that last hour in the evening.
The regular Fergus Falls, MN goose season usually starts the first week in October, and will run approximately (60) days. The Canada goose limit is (3) birds per day with (6) birds in possession. During this season we will be hunting all types of fields. From golden corn, soybeans, and some fresh cut alfalfa.
