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.

    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?
