does any one know if you can hunt Murphy lake it has a piblic access and if you are in the water shouldn't it be lagal. I am refering to the one on the gravel road in the park, not the one off of the highway, i already hunt that spot as does everyone else. but we are the only group that is on private land. the rest of the people have to stay in the water.

The best way to find out is to call your local DNR officer. It would not be good to find out the hard way with someone else calling them and interupting your day of hunting.

PLfisherman,
This doesn't answer your question, but could you post what you find out from the local DNR officer? We hunt about 1 mile south of there and have always wondered the same thing. Also, if you would be so kind to scare the geese/ducks south for us, we would be much obliged. wink.gif

I'm curious as well! My backyard butts up against Murphy Hanrehan and that lake is like 3 minutes from my house, However I kind of doubt you can hunt in the preserve. I can tell you that in the spring you see soooo many migrating ducks on that lake... Bufflehead, hooded mergansers, Common mergansers, Redhead, Mallards, Ruddy, Ringneck, Teal, Woodies and I can't think but I'm certain there were more. The DNR netted all of the fish out of Cleary lake and dumped all of the "good fish" ie.. Sunnies, bass, pike into Murphy lake this past spring and killed off the rough fish in Cleary lake with chemicals. I went off on a tangent......

For anyone who didn't find out......Three Rivers Park district is completely closed to hunt to the public. They have lottery deer and goose hunts to control the population, but otherwise they are closed.

They have I believe 10 people that goose hunt.
They have a schedule of days they hit the parks. They hunt on Baker Natl Golf course(yes, on the course), the beach at Lake Independence, and other areas.

And its a guided hunt!

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
