For the avid duck hunter or goose hunter, the The Pines Resort in Minnesota’s Northwoods is one of the best duck hunting and goose hunting resorts in Minnesota. With 67,000 acres - most of which is uninhabited - Lake Winnibigoshish is a haven for migratory birds that come each year to nest and stay for the summer and fall. Canadian Geese and ducks are popular birds to hunt and waterfowl season begins the end of September.
Enjoy our comfortable cabin accommodations as well as expert local advice to put you on some of the best locations for waterfowl hunting in Minnesota and ensure a successful trip with ample selection of mallards, canvasbacks, wood ducks, pintails and coots. Our Minnesota duck hunting experience helps you to get to the best locations and enjoy a relaxing stay throughout your hunting trip.
The best time to visit The Pines Resort for waterfowl hunting is late September through mid-October. This is usually the best time for Mallard hunting as local birds begin to migrate and this leads to easy harvest points throughout the area. Minnesota has a daily duck bag limit of six ducks per day. The mallard bag limit is four per day, including two hen mallards. The daily bag limits are three for wood ducks and three for scaup. Minnesota also has a bag limit of three dark geese per day; these include Canada geese, white-fronted geese and brant.
