Riding Areas


Dave

Recommended Posts

I'd like some reports on trail conditions from you guys. Also, reports on how riders are behaving out there.

A friend of mine went to Spider Lake last weekend. Riders were behaving well and he said it was the most machines he's ever seen there. Maybe it's cause of the publicity the area received in the Star paper and many riders didn't know of such an area.

I haven't rode yet but my Mille Lacs area (east side) hunting land has a lot of standing water on it.

We went up riding this past weekend. We rode up and around the soo line trail area. All riders we saw were staying on the trails, so that is good. It sure looked as if everyone was having fun.

Sorry to butt in on your thread Dave, glad to see you're taking a proactive role in monitoring other riders -- if everyone had been doing this fom the beginning, we probably wouldn't have the mess we do now. If you see somebody fishing Spider Lake this weekend, stop by and say hi --it will likely be me. I'll post my "objective" report next week wink.gif Spike

It has been good going up around URL. This spring has been cool but dry leaving the roads/trails in good shape.
The riders appear to be making sure they do not cause any trouble. I have not heard any complaints.
For those people that want to play in mud again this year I will be letting people ride out in a rice paddy that is out of production for this summer. They want mud they got it on private land. smile.gif

Just got a note from the SCDR ATV club I belong to saying that due to Blue Earth county zoning ordinances, the gravel pit which they had been using would be off limits to them. I don't ride that much recreationally but log lotsa miles riding fields. Looking at bugs & weeds in fields gets kinda boring after awhile. Since there isn't a lot of time leftoverto travel up north, would be nice to have a decent trail here in this part of the state.

Great to be here Dave! Can we talk about sheep now? LOL! Seriously, Smokey the 250 Trail Blazer keeps on going. Lotsa rain over the past week or so has made for some wet conditions & gullies, especially over in the SE MN trail area. Was wet last week when we were there. Reports of 4" - 5" of rain this past Monday nite not uncommon.

Dotch,

I for one agree. There should be several more trails in SE MN. To have to crowd the Snake River trail system is just isane: to have to travel 4 hours up north to the nearest trail is outrageous.

    • 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:
