Question on posted land

7 posts in this topic

Another idea is ask the sheriff or conservation officer about it. They'll usually look into illegal postings.

My parents just bought a cabin near Grantsburg Wisconsin. I am really looking forward to doing some archery deer hunting in that area. Anyway I have been up looking for sheds and other sign looking for good areas now. I bought a Platt Book for Burnett Co. and always bring my GPS with me. Anyway about 1/2 mile off the road I found an area that was POSTED no hunting or tresspassing...According to my GPS I shoudn't have been within 1/4 mile of the posted land and not only that but this land was running North/South and the Land in the Platt book runs mostly East/West. Is there any way of knowing for sure if someone is posting public land for thier own use.. Should I just stay clear of this area. None of the signs have a name on them to contact...

Thanks for the replies

I would check to see if the county has an area NRCS/FSA or Soil and Water Conservation District office. They may have maps digitized (GIS) on their computers that will have property boundaries. This will verify information in the plat book. They should even then be able to identify the owners (if it is privately owned) of the land.

Just remember one thing, Platt books are often times wrong. Even the new ones sometimes do not reflect land changing hands etc. Its best to do as others have suggested. On the other hand, there are people there that will unlawfully post land. I would check it out!

I would still run it by the DNR or at least your sherriff. You will be surprised what some people will do on public land and to keep people out a simple "no Trespassing" sign worked on U. What happens if come huntin season and U want to go on that land and U find new signs. Better know now and if is public land I am sure a sherriff would be interested. I know I would.

I have hunted that area for many years. There are a lot of bow hunters that come around. Best to be sure you are on public land. Some people do not take kindly to it.

also... In WI it is the responsibility of the person doing the walking to know where they are at all times. There is not a regulation that you HAVE to post your land.

      Well better you found it now and not this weekend or you would be SOL fore sure being the 4th.  Nothing wrong with a good old lake bath though!  Good Luck.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Use leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama.

      Got to cabin.  Water heater out, I think it is thermocouple.  Looking for someone to fix it, soon as possible.   I'm on west end and could use a suggestion.  I am going to call lakes gas too, see if they have anyone.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.
