Ha, thats funny, you must not be from around here. Good luck, you may as well start looking for some county or state ground up north.

I feel your pain. Wish I had the $$$ to buy some. We used to lease about 2000 acres for dirt cheap until 8 years ago. It was sold and we were chased to public land. Its not the same, but deer camp and deer hunting is great. I am just glad to be blessed with the opportunity. Good luck to you. Hopefully you find somewhere to hunt!

Yeah I hear what you guys are saying because some of the hunting land that I will hunt on this year will be sold next spring, so no more hunting there. Im going to look hard for a good 80-200 acre junk of land in the park rapids, bemidji area to buy. I go to Bemidji State right now and have bow hunted the state land around here, and thats fine, but when rifle season comes its a joke and everyone is fighting over stands and spots, and I really don't need that, cuz when I deer hunt I don't want to see or hear another person for miles around.

I for one am from texas and although DOVE hunting is 100 times better there Deer hunting for your average joe is not you see although texas is so big most of it is privately owned. I can tell you I would have never experienced deer hunting if not for living and working in minnesota as well as duck and geese which i have just started on this year as well as pheaseant. I am glad for all the public land they have in minnesota i thoroughly enjoy it i take the advantage through its ups and downs. I try to be respectful to other hunters and be friendly and courteous.

That's why us sportsmen NEED to participate and support organizations like Pheasants Forever, MN Deer Hunter's, National Wild Turkey Federation, etc.

I helped start our local PF chapter and we have added HUNDREDS of WMA (public hunting land-FOREVER) to our county just in the past 4 years.

I alone cannot afford to buy hunting land, so I hunt where I can get permission and on state land. At least my kids will be able to do the same when they grow up.

Don't you think that by the time our grandkids,kids are old enough to hunt, that unless you own your own land there won't be any place to hunt. Every year they are passing new laws that have to do with public or state land.

I just had this discussion with a hunting partner Sunday I came to the conclusion that the land yo look at buying now will not get any less in the future. Its just that the prices around here what Iam looking at is $2,300.00 an acre that can not be tillable due to low lying and swamps. to me that is a lot!!

It won't get easier, but those organizations, like PF can help politically also.

I think I heard somewere that PF is the largest habitat lobbying organization.

HOLY SMOKES---that is an aweful lot for an acrea. It seems like they are about $800 too high, IMO

I am sorry i hit the wrong button the price per acre was $2,700.00. $192,000 for 70 acres. The thing is I am sure someone will eventually pay that. I am just not sure if it will be me!

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
