I feel your pain. Wish I had the $$$ to buy some. We used to lease about 2000 acres for dirt cheap until 8 years ago. It was sold and we were chased to public land. Its not the same, but deer camp and deer hunting is great. I am just glad to be blessed with the opportunity. Good luck to you. Hopefully you find somewhere to hunt!

Yeah I hear what you guys are saying because some of the hunting land that I will hunt on this year will be sold next spring, so no more hunting there. Im going to look hard for a good 80-200 acre junk of land in the park rapids, bemidji area to buy. I go to Bemidji State right now and have bow hunted the state land around here, and thats fine, but when rifle season comes its a joke and everyone is fighting over stands and spots, and I really don't need that, cuz when I deer hunt I don't want to see or hear another person for miles around.

I for one am from texas and although DOVE hunting is 100 times better there Deer hunting for your average joe is not you see although texas is so big most of it is privately owned. I can tell you I would have never experienced deer hunting if not for living and working in minnesota as well as duck and geese which i have just started on this year as well as pheaseant. I am glad for all the public land they have in minnesota i thoroughly enjoy it i take the advantage through its ups and downs. I try to be respectful to other hunters and be friendly and courteous.

That's why us sportsmen NEED to participate and support organizations like Pheasants Forever, MN Deer Hunter's, National Wild Turkey Federation, etc.

I helped start our local PF chapter and we have added HUNDREDS of WMA (public hunting land-FOREVER) to our county just in the past 4 years.

I alone cannot afford to buy hunting land, so I hunt where I can get permission and on state land. At least my kids will be able to do the same when they grow up.

Don't you think that by the time our grandkids,kids are old enough to hunt, that unless you own your own land there won't be any place to hunt. Every year they are passing new laws that have to do with public or state land.

I just had this discussion with a hunting partner Sunday I came to the conclusion that the land yo look at buying now will not get any less in the future. Its just that the prices around here what Iam looking at is $2,300.00 an acre that can not be tillable due to low lying and swamps. to me that is a lot!!

It won't get easier, but those organizations, like PF can help politically also.

I think I heard somewere that PF is the largest habitat lobbying organization.

I am sorry i hit the wrong button the price per acre was $2,700.00. $192,000 for 70 acres. The thing is I am sure someone will eventually pay that. I am just not sure if it will be me!

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      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.
