Who do I call to find out if you can legally hunt an area or lake thats near a town or city? The local law enforcement, dnr? I've seen some decent looking spots while out and about this season but some of them look to be close to town or in what I would still call the metro area.

local law enforcement may be a good start and if it is cities or town limits they would know. Some cities you need to have a discharge firearms permit might want to check on that also. If the police dont know the dnr is the next choice I would take. you could also check with city councel or township board. hope this helps.

If you hunt the area much, you may want to just buy a plat book. Worth every penny!!

Where would I find such plat books? I have a gazeteer and atlas as well as a Minnesota book broken down by county showing rec areas and such. Guess I'm not familiar with a plat book, but sounds like I need to be.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
