Thanks to WOODMAN SCOTT HANSON

4 posts in this topic

This post is mainly to thank SCOTT HANSON (woodman) He went completely out of his way to show us some spots up in Bemidji for the SPECIAL YOUTH HUNT. He was even nice enough to show me to his own stand and allowed me to hunt it. I ended up setting up somewhere else so i wouldnt burn out his spot. He showed us exactly where to set up, showed us where the trails were and was an over all nice person.

We did not end up harvesting anything, but we did see a bunch of deer. Again my Brother, Father and I are extremely grateful that there are still people out there that would go out of their way to help someone out. We enjoyed the drive, the scenery, the land , the wildlife. Overall it was a great great great time.

Some other people from the forum also offered to help and i want to thank them too. I forget their screen names off the top of my head but they know who they are.

thanks,

david

`I had a class at Bemidji state in which Woodman was also a student. Although I only knew him for a short time, it was obvious that he is a very special person that will leave us with more than he has taken.

Are you guys for real, I worked with "Woodman" for 2 years and he was/still is an absolute...Great guy!! Hard pressed to find a much nicer guy that will go out of his way to help people, in any manner, not just the outdoors! So to say I wasn't surprised when reading this post is an understatement...Keep it up Scott and I'll still get up to fish with ya this winter!!

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
