Depth finder/GPS won't fully fead Nav. chips

3 posts in this topic

I think I might have a problem with my depth finder. It dosn't seem to show much for contours on Rainy. My old Nav. Reg. 10 chip has more contours on it than the new one does. Did they skip Rainy or is my depth finder bad? HTB

How far did you zoom down to? On the Nav. LOTW 1' contour map I had to zoom down to i think 1/8 of a mile screen resolution before the 1' contours showed up. Up to that point it was 5' contours. Try zooming in all the way and see what you get. I will check my 07 chip tonight for Rainy as it should be the same as yours.

huminbird depth finders use a different scale for zooming in than Lowrance does. I have it zoomed in all the way and it only shows general contours, but it does shown 1 ft. contours on most other local lakes. I'm thinking the 07 north doesn't have much for Rainy Lk. and was wondering if anyone knows of any chips that do have better contours. HTB

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
