Angle/Flag Island

7 posts in this topic

Hey all couple buddies and my self heading up to flag island the day after christmas. Was just wondering if their are any reports coming out of that area yet. Also is their a road plowed to the islands yet. I know that all this snow slowed the ice making quite abit. Making me worried were going to have to shell out extra cash if we cant drive out. Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday.

Thanks Ron

I'm sure the roads will be fine. Dan from Angle Inn told me he has never seen a year when the ice road wasn't open on the 26th. Don't sweat it.

Are you going with a kid named Donnell? They told me to watch out for him - he's a crazy one.

I would call ahead just to be sure. As of today the road isn't open to Flag. Sounds like there is a lot of slush with all the snow. With some luck the road might be open and the ice will be OK by Christmas.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
