Hunting Land

3 posts in this topic

I am relatively new to the Cold Spring area and am thinking about getting into bow hunting next year. I don't know a lot of people in the area that have land to hunt on and was wondering if anyone could suggest a good way to go about finding a place to hunt. I know of a few different pieces of public land I could hunt on but I would prefer to hunt private land. Any thoughts or commonts would be appreciated.

good luck, i tried to find land around st cloud for 2 years with no luck. Try farmers about your only choice, or find a cheap lease if there is such a thing anymore

We'd all prefer to hunt private land.

Find all the public land within the distance you'r ewilling to drive, check them out online on the DNR's webpage. Rule out the ones you don't want and make a list of the ones to visit.

Maybe make a few calls to the CO or wildlife guys in the area.

If you want to find private land, you gotta burn some boot leather and knock on doors. If someone here knew of someone who WANTED hunters to come out they would've said so and I can guarantee there isn't anyone offering their land for deer for free. They may let you on, but not unless you ask them and introduce yourself.

Explain that you want to BOWHUNT. That makes a difference to people. Also offer maybe only hunting for does. If they say they have people who gun hunt then offer to hunt late season only after the gun hunters are done.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
