A tip on asking to hunt private land.

Recommended Posts

Boy i coulda save alot of time with this one. Whent up north to look at my cousins land on friday cause I asked his permission to HUNT bear on his land. Yes I suppose thatd be fine he said. So hes giving me a guide tour, an I pick out a mouth water spot that I really want to set up in. We get back to his house sn have some coffee, an talk some more an I tell him that my intentions are to come up once a week an BAIT.......opps. My bad. People that dont hunt bear, dont always put hunting bear an baiting bear together as part of the deal. Something us bear hunters take for granted. He's an elderly man with a near by neighbor lady that he has concerns of her being worried that batibg bear will attract bear an will be running amuck be killing every living organism in the general vacinity. So he's gonna get back to me after he talks to her about it. I know I know, his land his rights so on an so forth but ya got a keep the peace. So we'll see. Just keep in mind to diclose all information involved when asking to HUNT private land, You could save alot of time if ya just word the request right. Later boar

we ran into that same scenerio one private land that was owned by a family (ourselves included). We probably didn't get into bear hunting until five years after the land was bought. None of the co-owners liked that idea and thought we would "ruining" the land. Even on adjoining public land, they still didn't like the idea of us baiting bear. Basically what happened was, to save from fighting, we placed all bear sites far from any place where anyone was deer hunting. I think just educating them that bear are always out there, it seems people forget that until someone starts to hunt them!

Wording is important. Stress what you are going to be doing and what you are NOT going to be doing. We were about 80% last year in ND getting permission to bow hunt deer. Even in the spring when we were looking for places to shed hunt it was important that we didnt say the word "hunt" at alot of places. most of the people didnt know what sheds were but they knew what hunting was and did not like people hunting on their land. So we would just ask to look for some antler sheds, not Shed Hunting.

its always a great idea to stress the bad things you WILL NOT be doing - such as driving across their field, leaving trash, etc.

that can go a long way to better relations!

Well got the phone call today from my cousin, I thought it'd be a few more days to a week but early is good. And i have a green light. I'm so jacked. Good to mention goblue about what a person wont be doing, cause as we talked more, I told him aexactly what I'll be doing an stressed especially what I wont be doing, like cutting live tress to build cribs, which i'd like to do for their weight, but knew he wouldnt approve. So yippee!!! Boar

Can always take them out and show them the bear sign on their own property then "help" them get rid of those nasty bears. wink

The tough part about getting permission to hunt anything anymore on private land is the people who do not follow the rules.

I oversee a ranch in North Dakota and I do let only a select few in to hunt that I know. It does not matter if its for bunnies or deer.

Way to many people have broken a few simple rules we have.

Its too bad for the honest people but how does the landowner know who will follow the rules?

    • Jeff, did you ever get this resolved?   I don't see a high speed relay for a 2012? There is a blower motor module. The module should have a full time battery and a full time ground. Then there will be a control wire. The control wire should vary voltage depending on the speed request.
    • Sounds like a great trip @jjdubsoutdoors!  Kinda what I was hoping to hear about the lake.  I’ll definitely watch episode 2 and 3.   I had loose plans with some friends to go out there in January but we called it off due to NO ice on the part of the lake we were planning to go to and iffy ice in other areas.  When I called the marina, the owner said he had guys launching their boats yet so bring that instead of ATVs or sleds!
    • We plan on going to Canada next year! Boy, ice was super variable. Anywhere from 3"-15" so we really had to be careful and check as we went. I'm sure by now you could go most places with a snowmobile, but still gotta be careful.
    • Was going to say why not just go to Canada, but it looks like you guys did pretty well for the long drive. How much ice did you have?
    • Drove 16 hours, 1000 miles from Wisconsin to our destination Fort Peck Lake Montana. Our goal was to catch lake trout ice fishing. It wasn't more than 10 minutes into dropping lines in the water that we already had two hookups and one lake trout on the ice. Throughout the day we had steady action pulling lake trout through the ice. Eddie from Lakeridge Motel was super helpful in setting us up on general areas where to go, baits, and techniques. Stay tuned for Episodes Two and Three, the lake trout continued to get bigger each day!   This day we set up on a nice 40-50 foot hump surrounded by deeper 70-80 foot water. Most of them were caught on either big spoons or big jigs with tubes, largo shad, or hair jigs. If you get the chance to ever make it out there, it is definitely a neat lake to check out for some amazing opportunity to catch giant lakers, walleye, and pike. Unfortunately we never made it around to targeting walleye or pike too much, but a few weeks ago a guy pulled up a 34" 16# walleye further up river. What a neat fishery.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i74ShAZoSZg
    • Here is what I would do. Hook up the trailer and turn on the 4 way flashers or hold the brake pedal down. Now you have a known good on the right side to compare to. Go to the fuse box under the hood and locate the "TRL L TRN" and "TRL R TRN" fuses (both 10 amp fuses). With either a test light or a multi meter check the fuses for power. should see 12 volts on both or the test light should illuminate brightly. If the right side does and the left side does not, unplug the trailer and recheck. If the left side fuse now shows power the problem is in between the fuse block and the turn hazard switch or the turn hazard switch itself.   If there is good power at both of the fuses than the problem is in between the fuse block and the trailer plug. Power is going away as soon as you plug in the trailer which tells us there is probably a corroded wire in that circuit. If you where to measure the voltage at the trailer you will probably find there is still a small amount still present on the circuit. Corrosion = resistance = voltage drop under load.   You will be looking for the yellow wire that runs from the fuse block to the trailer plug. There are typically connectors in the harness near the rear of the vehicle. Find that wire in the connector and back probe it with trailer connected. If there is 12 volts the problem is towards the trailer. If there is not 12 volts the problem is towards the fuse block.
    • Bad grounds  make trailer lights do odd things. Tail llights work until you step on the brake then nothing works until you let off the brake. Tail lights off and all the lights flash when using the turn signal. It is likely not a ground issue.
    • Nope.  It has been going on long enough to avoid that. 
    • Sous Vide... 😀 If not sous vide, then a dutch oven with a steamer thing. If it is too big for a dutch oven  with one of those folding steamer things then I would dig out my 18 quart roaster oven .  I think they even come with a rack.  
    • I think maybe Lund was too aggressive with the price increases in recent years of easy money or something.  When I bought my provee in 98, the difference between it and the comparable Alumacraft was only a few hundred bucks on a 20k package.   And the trim on the Lund looked nicer and more durable.     Some years later and I was at a boat show or something and the prices on ProVs had gone up and the difference was much more.      Presumably a deliberate decision to make ProV a premium product and insert a few other models  in there.
