200 acres located in NE MN 6 miles West of Cook. Situated on the Little Fork river this property has excellent fishing, Dear, Bear, ruffed and sharptail grouse, and Duck hunting. It is easily accessible from State HWY 1 and State HWY 73. The property has roughly 75 acres which is currently being farmed and 125 acres of forest/lowland. Three smaller fields (3-5 Acres) located back in the woods provide excellent locations for hunting deer and Bear. There is a rapids on the property which provides excellent walleye, northern, and panfish fishing. There is a good population of ducks and geese in the fall as well. There is housing, storage and utilities available. $15/A on a yearly basis. A Longer term lease can be negotiated if you or your group so choose. If interested Call Jim Enzmann at 218-666-5564 in the evening after 9:00 PM or drop me a note at [email protected] and I will try to answer your questions and get you in touch with Jim. Don't miss out on this excellent opportunity to have a place of your own in the Great North Woods. Other services such as wildlife food plot establishment and management are available.

It is about a 3.5 hour drive depending on traffic. The land is located in area 175 which is a lottery area however I don't know why there are more dear around than you can shake a stick at. The farm is located 1.5 miles south of area 107 which is a management area. You will have to give Jim a call on dividing up the lease. You can reach him after 9:00 PM at 218-666-5564. He can be tough to get a hold of and he is anti tech. (no answering machine) so let it ring quite a while and if you don't get him try again later in the evening.

I'm also interested in knowing if he would seperate. IMO $15/acre is kind high for 200 acres, I suppose I would have to go look at it in person to know.

I'll check with the people I would go in on a lease with.

I don't think you will have any trouble getting a permit. There are quite a few available for 175. I could be mistaken but I believe the lottery date is not till the first part of Sept. As far as taking a look at the propery you are welcome anytime just get a hold of Jim so he can show you around.

Sept 8th is the deadline for lottery application.

I hunt an area not too far from this one and let me tell you, there certainly is no shortage of deer in the area. Big bucks too, so not having a doe permit does have its advantages. Now if I could only capatilize on that advantage...

This is a great opportunity for an individual or group to setup a great year around hunting/recreation area. No need to worry about your spot being taken by another. It may cost a little more than what Potlatch land will but this is easily accessed and it holds a large deer and bear population with the field crops which are planted every year (Oats, Alfalfa, Clover). Other crops can be planted if you or your group would like such as Winter Wheat, Canola (rape), Sunflowers. Jim would like to have this property leased out soon so give him a call now if you are interested, 218-666-5564 after 9:00 PM. Jim farms and generally does not get in until that time. He does not have an answering machine so if you do not reach him be patient and try again later.

If I can answer any of your questions let me know or if you want to email me your phone number I will have Jim give you a call.

Would he be willing to let someone rent the land for a couple weekends a year just for hunting or is he looking just for someone to lease it for a whole year? Just looking for a new hunting spot this year because where we usually hunt there is too many people now.

I can't say for sure but call him up and let him know what you are thinking. It is a nice area for hunting and being close to some great lakes (vermilion, pelican, East side of the BWCA as well as some of the best trails in MN for sledding and ATV’s you may just want to park a trailer there and take advantage of the location year around. Jim's number is 218-666-5564. Try him later in the evening and if it is busy or he does not answer try him again that later around 10 PM.

Hope this helps

I can attest to this land. Prime Grade A grin.gif

Deer up the wazoo!

I used to drive around there in the evening and see how many I could count. Sometimes into triple digits shocked.gif

There are lots of deer around and if your patient enough to sort through the little bucks you have an excellent opportunity to get a real trophy.

      A co-worker reported they had some the best fishing ever on V last weekend.  Trolling 6-8 feet in the morning with HJ10’s.  Where the water temps were in the mid/low 50’s

      Those campsites are right across the water from us. Seem pretty well protected and I haven't heard of challenging over there. Holiday weekends they fill up very fast

      My son camped on Hinsdale with his aluminum runabout. Nice site but walking across the hull parked on uneven ground he separated a couple of the rivets.

      Thanks "Skunked Again!" I searched old posts and it sounds like my fiberglass boat might not be the best rig for Hinsdale. Still, would appreciate more advice/input. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      I don't know about either of them, but welcome to the forum.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I destroyed my main propeller saving a neighbors dock section from ramming my other neighbor's dock. Definitely watch out for each other out there.   Raven77 - on the plus side of the high water, the floating swim platform that you sold me the other year was able to just float off of the rocks that I had beached it on. No need to do any heavy lifting this season! I'm glad that I tied it to a tree as usual.

      On the south end...  A great 2022 MN Fishing Opener for most anglers.  The walleyes and saugers are hungry and the bite is on!  Good numbers of fish caught. Lots of big fish amongst the eaters.  Most anglers were vertically jigging in 6' - 20'.  Anchor up and jig over the side of the boat.  A nice mix of sizes.   The water is a bit dirty on the east portion of the south shore due to runoff from the rivers.  A bright jig with a minnow is the most productive. Reports were also good from the west portion of the south shore.  A bit cleaner water and equally good bite.  Lots of big fish mixed in with eaters.  Some anglers fishing on structure or on the edge of structure where available. On the Rainy River...   A lot of walleyes in the river as predicted, but the current is ripping and the water is a bit dirty.  Those who found slack water often found fish.  The norm was 6' - 15' with a bright jig and minnow.   Typical spots in the main channel were tough to fish due to high current.  The fast moving water helped to congregate fish.  Once you found them, there were normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig bite up at the Angle for the opener.  Most fish were caught in 6' - 20' adjacent shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  With cold water, a subtle presentation.  Both fatheads and frozen shiners worked well. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      Greetings all! Our group (two boats/five guys) is looking at fishing/camping trip based at Hinsdale Island Campground or Wake 'Em Up Bay Campground in about 3 weeks.  Can anyone advise about Hinsdale, especially the shoreline for landing boats? (Is it sandy or rocky? Mostly protected?) We're also wondering how busy both campgrounds are? We've stayed at Wake Em Up,  but that was 6-8 years ago and it was mostly empty...just the host and 2-3 others. Nowadays, do either or both fill up on June weekends? (We'd probably arrive on a Saturday, stay most of the week.) Of course, we also welcome suggestions for walleye techniques, depths, etc. We tend to fish smallies during the day and chase eyes in the evening.  Thanks in advance for your help!

      Saturday we got beat up by the wind all day long driving around to the usual spots and didn't catch a thing.  Towards the evening we went in shallow and ended up catching 7 keepers in 6ft of water on slip bobbers.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I didn’t have any luck, but I heard others and saw people catch fish.
