Apparently ATV are coming under attack. At work I listen to Garage Logic on AM 1500. It was brought up that the MooseWalk, MooseRun snowmobile trail near Finland, MN may be banned for ATV use. The gruop MRR (Minnesota Responsible Recreation) is spearheading this ban.

They have been successful in other areas of Minnesota. Their goal is to ban as many snowmobile, ATV, and gas powered boat use on our public trails and waterways as possible. They already put a stop to a golf course in Duluth, and some ATV trails in Bagley, MN. Also it has been repotedwith the help from Sierra Club, that they buy up as many motor use permits in the BWCA and not use them. Thus Anyone wanting to get a week permit on Basswood Lake with a motor can't because the permits were filled. I canoed that lake last spring and the lake was almost void of people. That is there goal, to keep people using motors out of the noprth woods.

The DNR is taking comments on why the MooseWalk, MooseRun trail should be open for ATV use. They will only accept a letter and MUST be in their office by January 23rd at 4:30 pm. Check out www.garagelogic.com then click on Show Archives. the address is there along with a link to MRR.

I don't own an ATV, yet, but this kind of dump irritates me. At some point, we won't be allowed to do anything.

Good Luck

The MRR people will tell you that they are not trying to ban any of this activities. But, their stipulations, or regulations, that they would like to see would suck every penny from the "fund' for each of those sports. So, the actual goal is banning but they'll never tell you that. Get those letters in guys.

    • 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!    
    • Can't stand the guy and don't watch his craap!  I was watching videos on the Sherp vehicle which is pretty cool and these two popped up.  When I saw them mowing over Wild rice beds it [PoorWordUsage]ed me off and got me to send it in to the DNR.  
    • ahh good old whistlindiesel, your just part of the click bait generating even more revenue for him now   love him or hate him he sure knows how to generate some buzz   Also he was already on the Mn DNR $hitlist for this and ticketed see below:
