MRGC, Welcome to the forum. 

 

Not to take this off topic but I have been going by your range there on the end of Monti for over 30 years.  I have always wondered how long do you think your going to be able to keep it open so close to the approaching town before they drive you guys out with safety and noise complaints?  It looks like you guys have done a lot of work with the back stop and other improvements.  

Thinking long-term have you thought about looking for a piece of land for a new range before the Anti's try and get you out?  

Just a question I have thought about all these years.  Good luck, hope you guys hang for another 30!   🙂

We are actually in the city of Monticello.  We had to get a building permit for the shooting shelters and MN DNR grant.  As part of the building permit process the city asked us to do some sound testing.  Interestingly, we are quieter then the city standards.The motorcycles and pickups with big tires were quite a bit louder then our shooting tests.  We also added sound deadening material to the ceilings of our shelters.  It helps big time.  Our club has been there since 1946 and predates any housing in the area.  MN ranges are protected when you are in compliance, and we are.  More improvements to come to our range soon.  Great place, great people.

      I figured fellow hunters could get behind this movie - and with Deer Hunting next weekend its perfect timing.

      Here in central MN we are looking quite well! With last nights -1 low we had some medium and bigger size bodies of water skim over. Only the bigger lakes are still open but most have locked up. Unfortunately with the forecast we will not be making much ice in the upcoming weeks. But that will not be an issue as bays of main/ bigger lakes and small lakes are in good shape. Went for A a drive on Sunday and found lakes to have 2-3” with most locked up, yesterday went for another drive and lakes I found to have 2-3 the day before now had 3-3.5”. Another I checked had 5” in close and 4” to just under 4” further out. With last nights cold and calm winds us avid early ice anglers should be good to go( with proper saftey precautions of course) for any time now. My plan is to head out in search of panfish next weekend and I can say for sure it will be a great trip to be able to get back to headwater adventures. My guess of being out on safe ice 4“+ set back about 3-5 weeks ago was SPOT on. I’m sure there will be a VERY long line of anglers heading out on URL next weekend, that will not be me I’ll stick with the less populated lakes and avoid the crowds as much as possible. Good luck to those who head out! Stay safe and report ice conditions and fishing reports! 2019-2020 ice season is here!

      I better upgrade to a Heavy-Duty tin foil hat, to keep Space-X from stealing all of my thoughts about the best fishing holes.

      Buddy made it out on Friday on a small lake and had 3.5 inches of ice.  Hearing reports from others that a lot of lakes were 2-2.5 inches and they backed off the lake after finding that.  Also heard reports that some of the bigger lakes the wind yesterday ate up a ton of ice but this morning the lakes really refroze quickly and further out.  I personally tagged out Sunday for deer so I'm switching gears this weekend and going to try to get some fish on top of the ice.  I'd assume a lot of lakes will be walkable by the weekend but avoid current and deeper holes unless you are checking ice thickness.  I'm hoping to get out Saturday and Sunday if I can find a fishing partner, buddy is looking at 3-5 lakes tomorrow and Thursday.  Looks like tonight I have the project of respooling line and getting ready for the weekend.

      I'd be worried about pulling my rig up the icy landing.

      Chucker, what is the latency for the LEO satellite service expected to be?    I know that was an issue for the Hughs service.

      Most of the lakes south and east of Aitken are locked up. Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Rabbit, Sisabagamah, and I would imagine many others.  Please be careful, use your ice pics, a good spud, and proceed cautiously. I saw on last nights news some poor guy took a quick swim in Skogman lake near Cambridge. Not good, could have had a very sad outcome.

      Talked about this before...low-earth satellite internet is pretty close to being ready. SpaceX just launched 60 more satellites yesterday, giving them about 120 in orbit now. They need 400 in place to start servicing the Northern United States and should be there by June next year. Low-earth satellite will be a game changer. High speeds, high capacity. So don't lock into service plan long-term. Still questions about pricing (haven't released any detail), but right now i'd expect early adopter rollout next summer, and widespread availability in Northern MN by summer 2021.
