Am thinking about trying to line up a trip with a few friends to go camp for a week and go wheeling and also to do a little fishing! Looking for ideas of campgrounds to go to with access to wheeler trails preferably around the Bemidji area! Any ideas of places to go would be greatly appreciated!

I've been checking that out! The Soo line trails look pretty fun! But just looking for input in case anyone has ridden any trails in that area and what the conditions and riding was like!

Soo Line trails would be fun if you like flat straight trails that seem to go on forever.

The next closest thing to Bemidji with campgrounds from what I could tell is Spider Lake just west of Pequot Lakes.

Martineau by Akeley and Walker, also their are some trails that run around cass lake area through the chippewa forest I believe.

The martineau is quite nice from what I've ridden.

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
