Long time Deer River resident and resort owner passes away

3 posts in this topic

Long time Deer River resident and owner of Cedarwild Resort,Al Peterson passed away this morning.

I don't know alot of the history, like how long Al and his late wife ran the resort on Moose lake, but I am thinking it was near fifty years or better.

Al had formed a alumni of young area residents who were over the many years is dock hands and grounds keepers at the resort.

my son Dan worked for him the last two seasons Al was at the resort.

ocasionaly he runs into someone whos says, "hey I used to work for Al, thirty years ago."

nothing lasts for ever. it's sad to see a part of the area history slip away.

Al will be missed by many.

I'm sad to hear that. When I was growing up, I would deliver minnows with my Dad, and would always look forward to visiting with Al. By far one of our favorite customers. He had a female black lab named Jet, that was always ready to play fetch. This is really bringing back some memories. He will definitely be missed by many.

I'm sad for all of us that Al is gone but happy for him and Kate that they are together again. We vacationed there for nearly 30 years - until our family grew so much that we needed a bigger cabin than Cedarwild could offer. (At nearly 30 years, we were actually short timers.) Each year we were there it was like seeing cousins that you only got to see once per year - virtually all repeat business. Al was one of the kindest, most patient men I've ever known. Our family treasurers the time we spent there. The Petersons certainly put their mark on many families.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.
