Better look at maps again...most of it was closed to hunting this summer. (Powerplant to Elk River) They did it under the radar made a bunch of people mad.

I used to hunt by snuffys landing in Becker behind the the powerplant then one day their was a observation platform there and got bummed out and kind of slacked off the river. man I miss that spot the hunting was awsome and never failed to see birds.

Jimbo80-did they just close it for the early season(overwater)? You can still hunt the river in that stretch during regular duck season, correct?

all hunting....more houses = more noise complaints. Also, people started hunting really close to town, so that don't help

not in that area but closer to the cities but still outside the no water zone...got chased off the river by an irritated land owner. She owned the property on the other side of the road. I wasn't breaking any rules just didn't want to get in to it. She kept saying I was on her property, I'm pretty sure she doesn't own the stream bed which is obviously exposed due to the drought. Now, am I off base here? First of all I take issue with what she was claiming to own...I'v hunted this spot for the last few years now and have seen others hunt it as well. Doesnt the tresspass law read...up to the high water mark...? Anyways...I left to avoid further confrontation. Not quite on topic...but thought you other river hunters could share some insight.

the high water mark is not a reliable rule, so I am told...

I always keep my feet wet while hunting the river or fishing the river and have always avoided prosecution.

we had a conversation about this awhile back on another board and others tended to agree.

I'm with sartell angler on this some of the property owners think that they own property all the way to the other side of the river at least thats the impression I get from some of the people when I last hunted the river.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
