Where to Start ? some land management ?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for any help in advance, we hunt both North Dakota and Minnesota. On the North Dakota we hunt a strip of woods along the Red River just North of Fargo. It is all private land. The land has really not been managed but has always held deer.

Last year we implemented a minimum 8 point rule past the ears on bucks.

As far as land practices the area is a mixed hardwoods and scrub. There are large areas of cockleburr taking over and we want to thin it out suggestions? We are also placing out mineral licks in 3 locations. Our biggest concern is the weeds and establishing food plots.

As we have a mixed group of older and younger hunters the work is restricted to about 4 of us with limited equipment resources. A lot of the area has downed log jams from spring flooding and junk. As it was an old farm we are considering pulling out the old fencelines, posts and equipment we find there.

As I stated this is a project none of us have tackled before so any ideas comments or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You mention you hunt MN and ND.

Are you talking about just the ND side for the land managment? By the looks of it, I think you are.

If you have MN land too, I can talk your ear off with programs the DNR and USFWS have to offer. Some financial assistance, and some is just good sound advice.

      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.

      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?
