4 posts in this topic

How is the driving conditions on Blackduck? Is there alot of snow cover or can a guy get a around fairly well without 4WD? I will be up this weekend and hoping to be able to drive around a little bit.

I was on the pond Saturday...would NOT recommend trying a car or 2 wheel drive vehicle.....would suggest 4 wheel drive only if you plan to go. I did see one car out there and don't have a clue how it got out there....and how it was going to get back off the lake!!

The winds the other day did a job on lake, the access had the winds blowing into it and there are some drifts out there that you don't see until you're right on them, so we've and some of our guest just used four wheelers the last couple of days without any problem (see better than in the truck). But there have been more trucks heading out on the lake yesterday and today so that should help with that, plus the end of the week they'll have it plowed at the access and the area for the fishing contest, but right now I wouldn't use a low clearance vehicle or a 2wd.

Was on the "Duck" Sunday (2/17/08) and not only got stuck twice myself, but witnessed three other four wheel drive vehicles that also had hung up on drifts (2-3 feet deep). Factor in that we had fog/misty rain so it made it difficult to see where to manuever and maze around drifts...............

Definetly carry a shovel, perhaps a tow strap and/or plan on getting off the lake prior to dark or backtracking a crumb trail on your gps if you venture any distance from the shoreline.

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
