Found Hand Held GPS

13 posts in this topic

Last weekend while participating in the Jay Cooke muzzleloading deer hunt. I found a hand held GPS I would like to return the GPS without having to drive to his place but will if I have to.

He has home as a waypoint, with the maping info on the GPS it looks like he lives on Tonto St. in Champlin Mn.

Does anybody know of a wedsite where you can punch in GPS

coordinates and get an address?

Any help would be great.

I'm sure you could find a site out there, try to google it. Another this is you could use a turn by turn GPS (if you have access to one) and you should be able to type them in there.

Try google earth. It works very well and we have used it to map hunting drives on the land where we hunt.

Does anyone here live in Champlin? Could you mail it to a FM member and have them deliver it?

Very nice though! Your a credit to hunters everywhere.

I drive through Champlin everyday. If you like, give me your email and we can arrange delivery. It shouldn't be too hard to drop off to the right owner. cool.gif

Do a Google on "Anoka co tax" and you can find the tax info website. Do a property search then in the address search box use 17* Tonto for the address and put in Ramsey for the city. It comes up with 11 addresses and names for that street with addresses beginning with 17XXX...and lots more personal info. On Google Earth it looks like there are about 30 houses on that street. You can also try 151* tonto for another address and that has a lot more people on it.

I don't want to post everybodies names and addresses here.

If you want to find out you can on your own.

It's scary to find out what is available online!

      @Rick - think this should be moved to South Central?  For now, I will post a link to this one.

      1/8 oz Lindy Frostee Spoons in glow red are a killer choice too, sometimes you won't need bait and sometimes you will. When they are preferring bait I'll throw on a few waxies, a minnow head, or a whole minnow.

      Haven't heard anything about Andrusia, haven't really seen anybody out there lately.

      Resorts moving around to stay on walleyes. Warm weather and a lot of fish.  Most catching in 29-31 ft with glow red, chartreuse, pink and gold with a rattle on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail.  Dead stick plain hook and live minnow or smaller jigs.  Walleye and sauger mix with a jumbo perch, eelpout and sturgeon as well. Electronics improving catch rate as fish are following jigs 4-5 feet off bottom to strike.  20"+ of ice on the lake in most areas along with only 3-6" of snow.  Ice roads allowing full sized vehicles.
      The Rainy River has had a great morning and evening bite but lots of slush on the ice right now. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Great fishing continues up at the NW Angle.  20+ inches of ice on ice roads traveled by resorts in good shape.  Resorts are fishing in 21-29 feet of water with a nice walleye, sauger, and perch bite. Best colors include glow red, silver, pink, green and gold.  Slab crappies in good numbers being caught in Ontario in 28-34'.  Crappies caught in 25' or greater have high mortality rate, thus keep up to limit and move on to another species.  Work through resorts and stay on ice road.
