Questions on Staples area

3 posts in this topic

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, 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

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      I just signed the petition "Robbinsdale Armstrong High School Athletic Director: Allow Trap/Skeet Participants to Earn a Chenille Letter." and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.

      Our goal is to reach 500 signatures and we need more support. You can read more and sign the petition here:
