Eliminate NEW development adjacent to WMAs

2 posts in this topic

Not sure if this is legally possible, but it would be nice for MN to ban any new permanent structure (home, barn, shed) from being build adjacent to WMAs and WPAs. MN should also restrict land subdividement near WMAs.

Maybe set a set back requirement of 1/4 or 1/2 mile. This would prevent development on the fence line, but still let landowner build.

The worst case scenario is the situation where someone purchases 5 or 10 acres on the WMA fence line and builds. I am seeing this in rural counties too. Is the thought to make the adjacent WMA theirs too?

Mandate only subdiviements of 40 acres or greater on land adjacent to a WMA or WPA. Include state forest land too?

A 500 ft setback would serve the purpose for me,just to keep the area open to shooters.(the 500ft rule)no discharge of firearms within 500 ft of a building,livestock,etc.

This problem has come up where I live a few times in the last two years.[PoorWordUsage] one city guy here posts a pond that he owns 90% of shoreline but the co. rd.right of way abuts the pond.He posts it as livestock contained KEEP OUT! right on the road.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
