used telephone poles

Question

GotOne

Just finished a box stand and need legs for it. A friend told me about a place on hwy 10 that he thought was somewhere south of St. Cloud that sells old telephone poles. He alo said that they will cut them to size. Anybody know of such a place. The land I hunt is up by Grygla and if possible I would actually like to get something up that way so I don't have to haul them up that far-any ideas up in the north country where I might find something. I need 4"x6" x 12' or 14' (treated) lumber. Thanks in advance.

Actually the company that is doing all the upgrades to powerpoles is giving them away free. Most of them are cut in half, I just got many free ones from the work around here.

Get some infor from the people that is working in the field, otherwise one of the largest contractor is Michaels

any coop usually has used poles for sale or free. usually you have to pick up/cut/haul. my local coop sells them for $1 each. look up the coop where you are wanting to put it, and see if they have any.

The place on hwy 10 does exist. You can't miss it. Just a few miles outside of St. Cloud. Never stopped in there but it is right on the hiway. It looks like they also have milled boards like 2x4's made out of old poles.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
