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.

    • Thanks Scoot!  Yes, we have our bear spray, brought a couple extra cans to keep in our packs besides what we have our on hips.   Hopefully it remains there the whole trip. Going to try and keep this updated during our trip. My son is taking video production class in school, hopefully he can put something together when we get back. Signing off for now, going to have lunch with the wife before I head home, grab the last cooler and pick my son up from school!  
    • It was an okay trip, made the best of it. Changed destination and distance I was willing to travel in those weather conditions. Can't afford to screw up when I'm solo.  More of a winter trip feel than a fall trip. After fishing in 17 degree windchill, I found just hanging out fireside a much better option.   I think I need to do an actual summer BW trip next year, despite the bugs and crowds. Than I can take the fishing part more seriously.   Seen some groups pass by camp, so there were others as crazy as I.
    • Good luck!  Bring bear spray, make sure it's always accessible, and know how to use it. No shortage of grizz in that area. Seems practically every year someone is attacked in the Gravelies.    Have fun and report back!
    • dont look so puzzled, I was correcting the stuff rick posted on fm as per your request.
    • From the left or they buck you off
    • revenge... LOL     But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better?   But for almost $200 bones more for an Ice 7 than an FL18, not sure how much better.     
    • Hummingbird Ice 7.  Yes please fix anything you don't understand that may bug you! 😃
    • 3 years ago I fell for the FLX28 from a FL18 and while I like the quiet I miss the 18. The 28 has a couple advantages but it has so much worthless dump on it my 18 did everything I wanted in a flasher. I sold the 18 to a friend and there's no way he's selling it back. JMHO but that 18 was the best ever. Like others I had a chance to buy at a very low price but still question the decision. As much as I'm tired of these flasher/auger posts this one is actually more about features more than brand bashing. Also a smart post by Rick to get some traffic going. I think this is still the best ice site but wonder why so many disappeared. The rules have been relaxed too, I haven't been banned for 2 or 3 years now. My reputation has a plus sign on it!  Eyeguy, time for some underwater photography?
    • for a ice???  then instead of than??  want me to edit???  ;lol
    • I heard they work a little better on small targets. 😁 But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better? 😮
