Looks like ice fishing transportation but the twine around the headlight suggests the thing is used to spread bales of hay or straw, but for what. Not many livestock on a lake and then I see bales on the lake. If you've ever had horses or cattle you'll note that there were a lot of bales by the amount of twine. Next question is whats that contraption on the back? A self mounted augering system which leads back to ice transportation but again why the twine? Snowmobiles in the background. Hmm, bales for a snowmobile race track, but you'd leave the twine on.

I'm going to guess and say the thing on the back is for loading or cutting ice blocks and the bales are for putting the ice up as an insulator.

I found this pic and just fell in love with it.. my grandpa had almost the same thing, and i remember spending lots of time in it, sleeping cooking and even a portable potty too..I was lucky enough to see so much cause each year my grandpa would pick a new place.. He used to work for Pabst in milw.. so we been places like yellow knife, white horse, nome, prince Edward island, Churchill, all over alasaka and Ca and the us.. Then my grandpa opa as we called him being we are from Germany, went into Fishing shows on TV and did the pro circuit all over.. Thats it... So i thought i would share the photo with you that i found. All it said with the pic is...

Ice Fishing shacks and people (Contact Us Please) the landscape of the frozen water on Lake Manitoba and Lake Winnipeg. Come on out and throw in your hook. Brave the cold or stay cozy warm in a friends fishing shack. A bombadier like this can often be seen on the southern shores of Lake Manitoba as they are still used in commercial fishing operations.

Spent some duck seasons at Delta Marsh on the south end of Lake Manitoba and saw these sitting in many yards. Also saw one on display at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
