World-class Minnesota Waterfowl Hunting Awaits You Here

With the onset of fall in the Northwoods comes shorter days, cooler temperatures, brilliant fall colors, and tremendous hunting opportunities. Over the years, The Hill Motel in Squaw Lake, MN., has developed a great reputation as the place to stay when you want to enjoy the fall colors or try your hand at some world-class waterfowl hunting.

The lakes and wetlands all around the motel are 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.

The best time to visit northern Minnesota 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.
