Lake Winnie fishing has been a little slow over the last few days. Hunting, on the other hand, has been good for waterfowl (ducks and geese) and grouse. Northern ducks have been funneling in for a few days now - getting better each day. Early and later in the day has been best on the big lakes. The smaller lakes have had shooting on and off all day long. Scaup and mallards and some goldeneye have been shot. Just like the walleyes, remember to play the wind for good duck hunting.

Grouse hunting is going well with an average of ten flushes a day. With the leaves down and off the trees, shooting has gotten much better. If you are scouting a place to deer hunt, bring up your shotgun and watch for grouse.

Don't forget that Denny's Resort now offers guided waterfowl hunts. Click here to read the details.
