Hey Jon, thanks for the advice the other day on when to make a trip up there. Unfortuanatly we wont be able to make it up there this year, but want to make it a trip for next year. We want to rent a house from the Minnow Station, do you have any idea as to how soon a person should get their reservation in? I know from previous posts you said they fill up fast. Would like to make it up the last week in Jan. or first week in Feb. cool.gif Looking forward to it already, maybe get a chance to meet you in person shocked.gif

Those reservations aren't taken until next year. They take reservations only for the year of.

I believe Alex1's question is: At what time next year (for winter 08-09) will they start taking reservations? He already knows that you cant make those reservations now and he knows that this year is filling up fast. Its a good question and I'm looking forward to the response. Is mid summer too early or do you have to wait until fall. Since they are already booked this winter for weekends until March, I assume they started taking reservations some time ago for this winter (07-08).

Jon's in the middle of moving so he'll be unhooked from the net for a few days.

We start taking reservations Oct 1 for that winter. We used to start earlier in the year but jobs change, divorice's happen, fights happen, death happen's until about 1/2 of the people would change their reservations before freezeup. It seems that everyone is a little more set in Oct.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
