Fly Instead?

7 posts in this topic

Anyone ever charter a flight from the cities up to LOW? There's a service out of Crystal Airport that charters flights on small planes.....just wondering if anyone has ever looked into it.

*edit* Just to clarify I'm not saying the the company out of Crystal Airport specifically goes there (haven't heard back from them yet)....just that they do sell charter flights to various places.

Shooter,

I am thinking is going to cost you about $1100.00 for a one way charter out of the Twin Cities. Just to rent an airplane that would take you there and back in about 3 hours is about $200.00 to $250.00 per hour. That's about $600.00 to $750.00 not counting pilot services, and that's just dropping you off, that price could double if you need to get picked up in a few days. If you have a couple friends that would split the cost you could get by cheaper. I still think you are looking at a trip that will cost about $2200.00 total.

Thanks for the reply....obviously not worth it for most people (including me). Oh well, half the fun is the drive up right?

Shooter,

We fly up every year from Alabama. This year we got tickets into Grand Forks for less than Minneapolis. Much shorter drive from there...but either way you are correct, it is worth the drive either way

From what I remember Mark is very close. We also thought about doing away with the long, endless 5-6 hour road trip. However after just a little checking we were happy to go back to hitting the road.

I know Sportsman's Lodge and a couple other resorts offer air package deals on their websites, but you would probably need to call the lodge to get rates.

Check with Marvin Windows. They sometimes will let you get on their plane at Hubert H Humphrey terminal. Keep in mind it is stand-by only. Its around $150 per person to Warroad one way.

      Wow that is a little discouraging. Looked at the DNR lake info for the last survey which was done on Big Trout lake in 2011. Not one Laker was caught in any of the test net types! Still shows their stocking them but none showed up. Anyone try it on opener and find any Lakers?

      Anyone go out there last weekend for opener? If so how was the ice and the bite? Giving this weekend a thought?

      I personally like the cold and dont mind it. But this week is a nice change and prob wont help the ice building much!

      I remembered I wrote this question. So I'm replying back. I was lucky enough to have a relative who had a Smith and Wesson Model 66-2 .357 mag (mint condition) that he was willing to part with. I haven't shot it yet. Been busy. Anyway now what recommendations are out there for 38 shells for plinking. I've read about the problems if using to heavy a load. Thanks
