I'll be trying out Rose Lake a little more this year if you guys are interested. I just graduated MSU a year and a half ago and I've stuck around the area. Between work and getting up to the bay, it should be a fun season.

i had the year off last fall and hunted around the lansing area. I would say that Rose Lake is not a great choice. Prior to the season you will see birds but as soon as one person shoots they all high tail it out.Hunted 3 or 4 times there and really only saw a handfull of birds between those times and they were all booking it out. If you get a chance go up 127 to Maple River, really nice ducky looking area and holds some birds too. Problem is you will need a canoe to get out and there is some hunting pressure there at times. The best thing you can do is get aquainted with land owners and ask if you can hunt their land. There is a nice field at the intersection of 127 and 69 to the north east that always holds alot of birds, especially geese. No idea who owns that land but if you can get permission that would be optimal.

The Shiawassee and fFish Point bingo halls were also places I frequented. Shiawassee is closer so I went there more often. Being in Erie, PA for school doesn't give me the time or the opportunity to go hunting this year. Rough.

Hey guys, just found the forum. I go to MSU currently and just got into duck hunting the last couple years. I'm a die hard bow hunter, but this duck hunting is addicting. Been looking at some spots in Rose Lake, but after reading these replies it's not looking so promising. If anyone needs a hunting buddy lemme know. I basically plan my class schedule around hunting so I'm pretty free usually. Always looking to meet other hunters.
