Otsego WMA-Rice lake

Recommended Posts

I saw this on the dnr rec compass, went for a drive looking for it, but could not find it. The way it looked on the rec compass, I thought it would be easy but it wasn't.

Has anyone been to this WMA? If so, could you help me with the directions?

Thanks in advance

You won't be hunting that spot very long before the CO, or Wright County Sheriff shows up. It is against city ordinance to hunt/discharge a firearm in the eastern part of the city.That land is in close proximity to new developments that are going in, so complaints will get called in.Any questions- call Otsego City Hall, or the Wright County Sheriff's Office.And yes, I do live in that area, but not where the WMA is.

If you go into the recreation compass and click on info then click on the rice lake wma it says you can still hunt it. That info might be old but i would be suprised if you couldent hunt that wma, i hunt another spot only about 3 miles away and its legal.

Thanks Roosterslayer,

I should have known better than to just listen to someone and not talk to the CO, I'll call the local CO and find out for sure. If you can hunt in the WMA, I'll have to go check it out just because huskydevil is telling people to stay away.

I think I know the spot you are hunting, have you been duck hunting there?

Thanks again

    • If you fish the river it could. Ive done it and seen it done multple times. Hit a log that is.
    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!
