Is there enough snow cover to get around on sleds? Or is driving the better option right now? I prefer to leave the truck on shore if I can. 

 

Thanks and and good luck!

Was wonder the same. I'm thinking of either hitting Mille Lacs or somewhere in Brainerd in the morning with the sled and porty?

I would say not enough snow for a snowmobile. At least not on the lakes in this area .( St Francis / Cambridge )The wind has blown the skiff of snow that we got into small piles, barely enough to put on the flaps of a portable. I have used my cleats the last couple of days.

Good Luck Fishing

I just checked the Mille Lacs cam site and it's don't look good. Guess I'll run up to Brainerd I know they had more snow up there a week or two ago.

Leech, at least west of brainerd, the is almost no snow on the lakes.  Plus we recieved zero snow this last week.  Not looking good in this neck of the woods for sleds.

I just got back from Mille Lacs. There's barely any snow, and the ice is so uneven and slippery that I could barely walk around and hole-hop, even with chains that usually provide plenty of grip. I almost went down a few times. The ice surface looks like ripples on the water.

I was going to run up there but the web cam shots didn't looks great for snow. Thanks for the update.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
