Riding in Wisconsin

13 posts in this topic

Where does one go to get the tags to ride

over in Wisconsin? How much for a non-resident?

I am hearing really good things about all the

trails over there. They have way way more trails

than Minnesota....

I hear you can purchase the license at most gas stations or retail outlets. Not sure of the cost.

4wanderingeyes rides in WI a lot. Hopefully he can give more specifics.

I checked the Wisconsin DNR site. Non residents need to display

a ATV trail pass. It's 35.00 and is valid from 1 July until

June 30th. Available on line at the DNR site, or at

other licensing places like bait stores and gas stations....

Their trails are alot better then ours! There are many trails to ride on as well. The trail passes can be picked up at alot of gas stations, or any licensing place, most towns have atleast one. The trail passes are good for one year July-July, they have went up to $35 this year from $18 last year, but is still very well worth it!

Do you have an area in mind?

We are thinking either the Tuscobia trail System or

the Birchwood Trails???

Tuscobia trail is a old rail road bed, its like driving a gravel road! The Birchwood area trails are fun trails!

We were going to jump off the Tuscobia system after

hitting the Dead Horse trail head past Lorretta.

Then we were heading for Clam Lake, which is about

50 miles on the Dead Horse. It is suppose to be

true wheeling most of the way?!!

The dead horse is a nice trail. Plan a full day ride on it, and bring gas, unless you know you get good milage! The dead horse is somewhat a rough ride, there is a good 5-10 miles of a cobblestone type trail that will wear you out, and put your machine to the test! If you think you have a bad ball joint or wheel bearing, fix it first!

Closer to Birchwood you will find the 9 mile loop, this trail is made for some true 4x4 atv'ing, I wouldnt recommend any 2 wd atv's! If you head toward Spider lake, this is another nice trail system, and a nice little bar to stop for a sandwhich, and a beverage. Plan a 2-3 day ride, you will easily put on 300 miles without going over the same trail!

I wish I could go!

Plan to spend the majority of the day on the Deadhorse depending on trail conditions. Plan to carry fuel as there is nowhere to stop between Loretta and Clam Lake.

We typically will drive Loretta to Clam Lake one day, spend the night in clam lake and then backtrack to loretta the folowing day.

Most importantly enjoy the riding.

The only trail I have riden on in Wisconsin was near Danbury and it was all sand. Are all the trails like this one or is there regular trails like in MN? The sand trail did not excite me too much, it was like driving in snow.

No, not all of the trails are like that, you need to go more north, south, or east to get out of the sand.

Thats good. I would be willing to go back and try another area but not to drive in the sand like that. Thanks.

I'm guessing the time it takes to run the dead horse depends a lot on conditions? We did it in late May and ran half way up from Loretta to Clam Lake. Took us about 4 hours to go up and back, averaged about 15 MPH and were werent riding hard by any means, just a leisurely put through the woods.

I can see where it would take a LOT longer if trail conditions were wet, or you stop and play at the pit or a couple of the other spots.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
