Or it could have come loose from a snowmobile and the guy didn't realize it till later. I found one where that was the case and turned it in to a resort close by. Luckily the guy lived on the lake and went looking for it the next day and decided to stop by. I did have his DNR # off the shelter so sooner or later he was going to get it back. Anyway if you found it on a big lake its possible whomever lost it didn't back track to well.

Look for a DNR or Lic # on the shack and call a local CO.

I hate to say it but....

If a portable falls out of a truck, OK, understandable you might not realize it for a while.

If your portable releases from your snowmobile. Come on. You just lost 15% of your weight. There is a big a$$ box missing from the back. dont you ever turn around?

Thank you Tyler for making the effort to find the owner. Hopefully it wasn't stolen and abandoned. Best of luck.

if it was left there for a long time it may have been stolen

then dumped off

thats what my guess was.. it had been there since the middle of december and its was completely buried in snow. no tracks or nothing going to it like it was just left there to root.

    • Like I said Dave I think you are correct.  But this is a different election.  So your vote might matter.  I also wonder who the Liberal Tribune is actually calling if that is the one you want to hang your hat on.
    • Sorry but if Hillary wins I will not get what I deserve.  Everyone who voted for her or anyone besides Trump gets what they deserve.
    • I could care less if Johnson changes his mind.  I think you're  trolling in the wrong lake if you've ever seen me post about any candidate changing their mind.
    • How  big is the lake and what kind of weeds are most prevalent? 
    • I think we can thank our coach, the D will not lay down to anybody. We have made to MVP quarterbacks look like T-Jack lol. What a fun team to watch, is it sustainable? Only time will tell but I tell you what, nobody wants to play our D in the post season. That's what I'm excited about.  If Trent Dilfer can do it, we can do it. 
    • After that performance? Even the extremely biased Brietbart poll shows Trump losing that debate: Who won the debate polls: CNN/ORC - 62/27 = Clinton +35 PPP - 50/41 = Clinton +9 NBC/SM - 52/21 = Clinton +31 Gravis/Brietbart - 48/43 Clinton = +5 Reuters - 56/26 = Clinton +30
    • Nice design, cant wait to see it completed...    
    • So, for Y'all that are blowing RNT and Zink calls, how do you decide what to get? I'm in the mood to pick one really good goose call and one really good mallard call.  I looked at the $100 plus calls in the boxes at the C store but am leary of just pulling something off the hook based on a model name. Any suggestions for someone who mainly hunts in MN only for waterfowl? A good woodie call should be considered too. I'm still using some old Haydell calls, and Canada Hammer, Quack Head, etc..  Thanks
    • How have sturgeon been up there? Haven't been able to fish much (helping sister with hew wedding that was last weekend), but I do have Friday off and I'm thinking of heading up there to give it a go.
    • The final item on my list is to create a fold down bed. I have the aluminum bought and cut and have a friend using the tig to put it together. I plan on using webbing across the top and will buy a 4" mattress from clarkfield outdoors. Here are the designs, I will add pictures when I have it completed and mounted.
