HUNTERS POINT

11 posts in this topic

Thinking of moving our perm up to Hunters Point. Have tried to reach George or someone the past couple of days and have only gotten an answering machine. Anyone know if they are taking a little vacation before the hard water work starts, and if so when they might return? Not sure if the move will work, the house is on skids not wheels, so we'll need to get it moved. Thanks for any info Bill

if you do need it, I have a name of a guy who moves houses. I had my 10X16 on skids moved from one side of the lake to the other last year with no issues.

shack...that's him!!! he is a very nice guy, easy going. I made arrangements with him to move me from Isle to Garrison. we had a timeframe worked out, and I had the spot reserved at the new place. he knew my house and where it was and was going. I called him to see when he wanted to move it, and if I need to pay him right away....turns out he had to move others, so he grabbed mine and did it that day, and I just sent him a check!!! He'll work with you to get your house where it needs to be safely!!

I am not a 100 percent sure, but I believe that hunters can't take in any more fish houses. The county put all kinds of restrictions on them this summer. The county wanted them to shrink the number of houses. We had to all write letters to the county commisioner to help with the fight. Luckily we won, yet I believe one of the rules hunters agreed to is they can't take in any more fish houses. I guess people of the county were complaining about increased lake traffic.

I thought I read this on their web site also!

If I remember correctly, the neighbors complained. They had done some resent upgrades (I.E. fence, sewer and others). But it was not enough.

Well I know that the ruling is making hunters make a few changes. I don't think that is should affect any one that is a currently has a fish house there. I believe they ruled that hunters can't have more then 300 houses. Which I am pretty sure, that they currently have 300. So I believe that means they can't take on any more.

      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.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.
