County Fee land?

4 posts in this topic

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.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
