County Fee land?

Recommended Posts

Heartman

HUnting in northern Lake COunty, I've used a plat book to determine land ownership. There is a nice piece of land, but the plat book says "County Fee" land - is this open to hunting? Surrounding pieces are "Tax Forfeit", this is the only so marked as County Fee - can I access this parcel without written permission?

Apparently this is a tough question. Try www.lakecounty.gov. Scroll down to the MN one and you'll find land parcel info. If that doesn't tell you what you need to know, contact them.

Good luck.

First of all a plat book is only as good as the info the day it was printed. Land could change hands the next day and you wouldn't know it. Sounds like you've done some work to spot the piece in question. Best move is to go to the County Courthouse and work with the people in the land records office. They can find the spot, check for up to the minute ownership information, and help you get an understanding what the terms mean.

The next issue is your access issue, and the status of the land you have to cross to get to the parcel in question. Same solution should apply.

Finally, look at pages 12 and 13 of the hunting regs for the law about tresspass. In extremely simple terms it appears that unless forest land is posted you can hunt it. There's someeting in the law about some trees that get cut every 15 years and I don't know what that means. Most likely not an issue in many places in the state.

Generally the part about trees that get cut every 15 years would be applying to hybrid poplar fields. They look like woods, but basically are agriculture.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
