Are you talking about the Battle Point Public access? If so, then I personally haven't had any poblems. I have been there a couple times recently and have not had a single problem. Just be smart about what you leave in your vehicle etc. There are a lot of higher end houses and new housing developments in the area, which means some watchful eyes. Good luck.

Yeah, its on Battle Point (technically)but the DNR map says Sugar Point Public access. I was the only vehicle there today, so I just went and launched from the Sugar Point Resort. Landing is kind of steep, but the owners were really cool about everything. I called a "certain family owned" resort on the south east side before I decided to launch at sugar point and some crabby dude answered and said its 10 bucks to launch IF they have room. I asked is it busy this time of year and he said no, not till the end of july.....WTH then!! LOL whatever!

I have stayed at Sugar Point Resort for many years and they are always great. It is steep but, your truck will definitely be safe there.

I've used this launch a lot over the years and never had any trouble but you always wonder...

Just take everything out of the truck, as long as there is nothing inside you should have no problems. I do this at every boat landing, the problem is becoming more evident statewide, not just in this area. I even just leave it unlocked now, that way you wont have broken windows when you return. Happened to me last summer, (not on this landing), guess that bag of shorts and t-shirts was pretty important. Now I just take everything out of my vehicle and even leave my doors unlocked and have never had a problem.

Heck, you could go one step further and remove one battery cable (or install a cut-off switch). Least this way your empty and unlocked truck won't be missing.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
