Best place to "leave" a house

5 posts in this topic

going to bring my house up to low this year and in past years i never had my own. I am in school in ely and going to be up there x-mas- new years(ice permiting) then here and there after that. its a long drive and conditions such as slush and ice out change fast, is there anywhere that provides a service of "babysitting" your house and whats the cost? would consider a buisiness or even a responsible local maybe for fishing rights when un-occupied???? Anyone got any experiances with this service?

I notice there are a few, sometimes more than a few, shacks sitting on the ice near Adrians access. I assumed at least some of these shacks are dragged out by private owners, used, and dragged back for future use. (free storage?)

Besides the obvious risk of theft or vandalism, are there any problems with doing this ??

I have left mine on the ice by adrians. As far as I know there has never been a fee. Other than the obvious road pass. Never had any problems there, however i have never left it up there for much longer than a week before I went and pulled it back out on the ice.

I wondered the same thing last year about the houses by Adrians road. Do they keep an eye on them if you pay them or something?

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
