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.

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
