Early Season Canadian Goose
Many hunters participated in the opening of Early Canadian Goose Season this Saturday. Lake of the Woods offers acres of public land from the Rainy River, South Shore, and NW Angle that hunters enjoy many seasons of the year. This season will run September 5th-22nd. Licenses can be obtained at any tackle store and most of our resorts will also get you set to go out. Some of our resorts will specially guide your trip, just like fishing!
For all regulations the 2015 hunting regs handbook is online on the MN DNR website HERE
