Off Road Travel

Recommended Posts

Well I am not sure on how many have tried driving to where ever they wanted on the lake off of the roads. I gave it a shot on Saturday the 18th and drove from Rogers to Hillmans with a F250. Only tracks i seen between the places where ours. So if anyone is wondering about driving off road you can do it. Truck sunk about 6-8 inches in snow while driving oner there.

Drove out of Hillmans. Was able to drive off road in most areas but not everywhere. Found an area were the truck broke through double ice and got stuck in 8-10" of water. Needed to be towed out by my buddy. Good thing I remembered to bring my tow strap with.

Oh yeah i forgot about the poker chip. Yeah less educated would be correct. I wonder if anyone caught my fishing pole. On Sunday we went to the end of Hillmans road after you guys left and caught some big perch and small walleyes. We stayed untill noon and then left.

can anyone tell me what condition the plowed roads are in? i was up last weekend and we went out on saturday when the roads were sloppy. it was no problem getting out but buy sunday evening when we wanted to head home, we could not pull the fishhouse off the lake. we spent 3 hours trying to get unstuck. the standing water on the roads had formed an inch layer of ice the the truck was just too wimppy to break through while pullong the shack. i just couldnt get traction. thankfully there was an extremelt nice local gentleman who pulled our shack off the ice because i did not have 4 wheel drive and that is what was needed to get off the lake.

so back to my question, are the plowed roads in good enough shape to pull a 6x14 shack out with a 2 wheel drive vehicle? thanks for the info!

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
