Best time to book a western Minnesota duck hunt: Mid October though Thanksgiving weekend
Minnesota’s duck hunting has become one of the nations best kept secrets over the last decade. The perfect blend of habitat, potholes and large grain fields, provide everything they need in their migration south in the fall.
Our seasons open in late September and typically runs through Thanksgiving or the last weekend in November. We shoot mainly local ducks (mallards, teal & wood ducks) around opener and for the first 10-14 days of the season. Our first waves of migrating mallards, wigeon, pintail and gadwall traditionally start to show up around the October full moon. Mid October through the end of November is traditionally the best time to be in western MN duck hunting.
