Search Dan Infalt on Youtube. He has a lot of good marsh buck tactic videos.

Basically scout transitions, play the wind, look for islands with large trees as that will be a high spot with likely bedding as marsh land wont support the bigger trees. Watch your thermals in the evening as they will be pulling to the water in the evenings.

Northern swamps or in the SE corner? I'm in the SE corner near the Whitewater valley and there are some super swamp opportunities there.

There is a huge variety of habitat and terrain types in Minnesota, and most regions will have swampy wetlands, where are you headed?



This one snuck out of a north/central swamp 5 yrs ago....I was waiting.

I can't speak much on tactics as I don't hunt swamps, but would a good set of waders be of help, maybe to get to that out of the way hide-hole that no hunter ever gets to?

Yes there is! I love it down there. I hunt Whitewater and Richard J Dorer a lot, and there are some nasty places that only a few of us will venture back into. lol
