Questions on Staples area

Recommended Posts

Crow Hunter

I bought a parcel a few miles north of Staples this summer; this will be my first time hunting deer in this area. A couple of questions: Where is a good place to stop for a burger and a beverage around this area? I have noticed the places in Staples but have not had a chance to stop in yet. Also, is there any resort or anyplace around this area where a guy could take a hot shower for a few dollars? I am used to hunting by Mille Lacs lake and always took showers at a resort there. Any other tips about the area? Thanks for any help. CH

Crow Hunter,

I hunt just north of Motley, about 2 miles out of Leader. In Staples, the bar called Twisted Sisters is a good place to eat and have a beer. Also, if you don't mind a 15 or so mile drive, The Bears Den in Leader is a good place to eat and check and see how the hunters are doing in the area as well. Lots of big deer killed up there last year. The picture to the left took fifth place at the Bears Den big buck contest last fall.

Good luck hunting.

Mysterio

Mysterio, thanks for the info. I am not that far from Leader, my place is about a mile south of Lyons state forest. That is a great buck, congratulations. CH

      Use a layer of painters (blue) masking tape on cork first, to help protect it, then apply whatever you want. Electrical tape is used by most, but I like using hockey tape.

      Mille Lacs would be a good choice. One of the resorts should be able hook you up.

      I used a self adhering tape to attach them,  but now the tape is getting sticky and a pain to use.  Any ideas what something else too use? Thanks

      Check out the South Central Forum, or MN Metro Forum and ask there as well as the SE MN- Rochester Forum. You may get more answers there as well.   If you could extend to three hours away Mille Lacs Lake could for sure accomodate what you are looking for.

      Hello...  I am coming down to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester from Homer, Alaska on February 11-20 and would like some advice. On the afternoon of Friday the 16th  through the evening of Sunday the 18th I have the time to go fishing. I would like to go after some pike and walleye. I would like to stay in a heated shack during my time on the ice. Also some rental gear, a radio and bait might be nice. Any advice on who rents shacks within a 2+ hour drive of Rochester with good size fish? I am looking more for decent size than numbers.  Thanks JFaber
