Question on posted land

Recommended Posts

Another idea is ask the sheriff or conservation officer about it. They'll usually look into illegal postings.

My parents just bought a cabin near Grantsburg Wisconsin. I am really looking forward to doing some archery deer hunting in that area. Anyway I have been up looking for sheds and other sign looking for good areas now. I bought a Platt Book for Burnett Co. and always bring my GPS with me. Anyway about 1/2 mile off the road I found an area that was POSTED no hunting or tresspassing...According to my GPS I shoudn't have been within 1/4 mile of the posted land and not only that but this land was running North/South and the Land in the Platt book runs mostly East/West. Is there any way of knowing for sure if someone is posting public land for thier own use.. Should I just stay clear of this area. None of the signs have a name on them to contact...

Thanks for the replies

I would check to see if the county has an area NRCS/FSA or Soil and Water Conservation District office. They may have maps digitized (GIS) on their computers that will have property boundaries. This will verify information in the plat book. They should even then be able to identify the owners (if it is privately owned) of the land.

Just remember one thing, Platt books are often times wrong. Even the new ones sometimes do not reflect land changing hands etc. Its best to do as others have suggested. On the other hand, there are people there that will unlawfully post land. I would check it out!

I would still run it by the DNR or at least your sherriff. You will be surprised what some people will do on public land and to keep people out a simple "no Trespassing" sign worked on U. What happens if come huntin season and U want to go on that land and U find new signs. Better know now and if is public land I am sure a sherriff would be interested. I know I would.

I have hunted that area for many years. There are a lot of bow hunters that come around. Best to be sure you are on public land. Some people do not take kindly to it.

also... In WI it is the responsibility of the person doing the walking to know where they are at all times. There is not a regulation that you HAVE to post your land.

    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me. 
    • I've used these too. Do you add any meat or whole minnow? Hooked through the back or lip? 
    • Was up there a week ago. We stayed at the Walleye Retreat Lodge but did our own fishing rather than using their houses. First day we went out kind of N-NW of Morris Point into 27' of water. Didn't do too well. Just a couple saugers in the afternoon.    My nephew was up there with another bunch and went out using Adrian's Resort access and did quite well that same day. They gave us waypoints to their location so on day 2 we tried that. It was about 15 miles north in 33' of water. We did much better this day although most were still saugers in the 12" - 13" range. Got a few walleye in the 15" - 19" range and one 21" by your's truly.    Seemed our best success, especially for the walleyes, was dead sticking using a plain hook through the back of rainbows about a foot off the bottom. I talked to one of our neighboring fishermen and he had just landed a 27" walleye.
    • Like others have said, Impulse mayflies on a 3 or 4mm tungsten jig is my go-to for panfish. If you are targeting deeper crappies or big fish only give the Lindy frosted spoons a try, 1/16 works quite well tipped with a minnow head or waxies.
    • WOW!!!  I have read about the electronic reverse problems on DooTalk,,, I have the manual reverse and have not had any issues,,,, Bummer to hear about your engine issue ,,, Hope the dealer gets you up and back on the trails ,,, Who knows when we will get another winter like this again ,,, I do need to get some spare relays one of these days
