I have hunted Bear Creek in Hinkley. Its a small family run place, but we like it. Its a bit of a hike, but if you are on the northside it shouldn't be terrible.

I believe there is one in Rogers(or around there). I've been there twice, and I think that their hunting area and customer service is not very well kept in comparison to others I have hunted. It is close to the cities though.

Wings North is in the Pine City area and Rocky Bay is in Rock Creek (further south of Wings North). Wings North is the larger of the 2, but Rocky Bay is a very accomadating family run club.

If you are talking about the one in Ostego, I think they are out of business.

The hunting areas they have/had are now surrounded by houses.

I've tried calling the one's in Princeton, one I left messages, never heard back, the other one seems to be out of business, since the # is disconnected.

Wings North is right up 35w. I have been there and its nice. They have other areas other than just cut corn to hunt. I like slough grass and thickets, makes it more of a challenge.

My favorite is Gold Meadows up by Cold Spring!....Joe has been in it for years and does a great job sectioning up the cover and mixing it up...May be a little jaunt but worth the drive! Good luck!

Hoggs,

If it's the farm on Cty Rd 5, I think they're done too. I hunted it once before. It was O.K.

The last time I went by there, the signs were in pretty bad shape - not kept up like a place still in business.

I've hunted Gold Meadows in Cold Spring a couple times. Good cover to hunt. Very modest club house but we're there to hunt, and that's what they focus on. Huge birds too.

    • Honestly I'd rather just face the Hawks whenever we get our shot, we are either good enough or we are not. This the first year we have been better than them for the entire season, I say bring em on. I don't want to trade anyone away right now, havingn a guy like Scandella on the bottom pair makes us that much better. Throw some picks at a rental and keep our depth, no reason to make any drastic moves. We should be warry of San Jose too, they have a very solid team and made the trip last year but everyone else should be beatable if we play like we can and don't run into a hot goalie.
    • Pope suggests it's better to be an atheist than a bad Christian. CNN   Count me among those saying, "I don't share your beliefs, but you're one awesome pope. Keep on rocking."    

    • What is more likely, that your half of the media, gov & courts are honest and trustworthy and the other half is trying to destroy the world. Or that both sides are playing the public to enrich & empower themselves via a broken and corrupt system. Picking a side in this mess is playing the game by their rules. Your basic salami tactics to control the masses.
    •     Both from the same news outlet.
    •   Then why are you asking me this question?     Isn't that the way it's done now that we are in the Trump era?
    • Sounds like there is still some good snow up the Gunflint. I sent an email to Bearskin lodge about their web cam not working and got a reply.   "That's correct. The repaired webcam has broken again, unfortunately, so only the same picture gets sent.  It is fairly inaccessible because of deep snow, but someone will be going out soon to take it down so we can get it fixed again.  It will probably have to be put up in a new place, which will disappoint people who have been keeping running snaps of the photos to make video.   For what it's worth, it looks exactly the same now as it did when that picture was taken.  Winter tends to look the same everyday here."   Sue Bearskin Lodge   -----Original Message----- From: Steve A Sent: Thursday, February 23, 2017 11:10 AM To: stay@bearskin.com Subject: From the Bearskin Contact Form   From: Steve A Zip: 55429   Message Body: Whats up with your web cam? It's had the same picture for a month. There are a lot of us snowmobilers who watch your cam to know if there is any snow left up there and if we should come up sledding or not. Can you check to see if it's working?  Thanks.  
    • Any combo of Dunn/Jones is not something you can build a contender around. Either could eventually become a decent backup; neither looks to be leadership/starter material. I would have no problem with trading Rubio for another PG, as long as it is the right dude. 

      Much like Rubio, Rose just isn't worth the salary he will command. 
    • Anyone who took Brett Hite is a happy camper! Wayyyy too early yet to get too excited or too worried. Bobby Lane stuck an 8+, and his total weight is 17 and change, so he could vault up is he makes a couple of good culls.
