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.

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
