Ring-necked ducks are moving down from the north, according to Eugene Boshey, a duck hunting guide on Nett Lake near Orr. Boshey called me today to say the ringnecks began piling into the lake yesterday and continued to come in today. He said one bay he checked was “black with ducks.” Nett Lake is on the Bois Forte Reservation.
Non band members may hunt on Nett Lake only with a guide from the reservation. For more information on Nett Lake duck hunting, call the Bois Forte Department of Natural Resources office at (218) 757-3261 or go to www.boisfortednr.com.
