should i be worried???

Recommended Posts

a buddy of mine was at the lake today and he saw a 2 4 wheelers circling my fish house (very close) after dark. He thought it was just the dnr cuz they were out checking but then he saw the 4 wheelers load up into a big white moving van. is this something i should be worried about as far as maybe someone scoping out my house for something to steal?

Could just be people looking to see who's house it is. I drive by people's fish houses all the time. Keep an eye on it but I wouldn't be too worried.

i am one of the most paranoid people when it comes to stuff like that. like when i was a kid and id hear a noise at night i would have a baseball bat in my room or my daisy in the closet and i would always go to check it out. if it were me, i would be worried, but thats me and thats how i roll.

I had someone stick a wonder bar through my door trying to get the clasp loose last year and they stole everything out of the fish house next to mine shocked.gif. I would find out who they are and ask them some questions. Just my 2 cents. Good Luck

I'd be worried. Who hauls there 4 wheelers around in a big moving van? Did your friend get a license number? Maybe call the DNR and tell them about it and see what they think.

If they were out there with wheelers and a moving van, I think I would be worried. Why would they have a moving van on the ice??

If you don't mind, can I ask what they were doing. Just doesn't sound like something the DNR would do.


I have seen the DNR do just that many times on Vermilion.

They are checking for the owners name, then they GPS the spot and return after the house is removed. If there is any garbage or other junk on that site, the owner will get a citation in the mail! tongue.gif

Hey, that's great if the DNR are able to send citations out for litter left at the shanty site. It's too bad they don't have an efficient system like that in the open water seasons. Tired of seeing the trash washed up on the banks, it seems especially bad on the rivers these days.

Its been years since me and some friends had a permanent house we'd leave on the ice but when we did we'd leave it open and take everything with us. It was a little more time consuming each time but we saw too many houses getting robbed and stuff stolen.

Glad to hear it was just the DNR poking around though. I think its great that people on here can keep an eye out and post susicious activity. Anything to keep the bad seeds under control is always helpful.

What a GREAT job, my DREAM job. I would love to be a DNR agent. I don't know about sufficient proof of a person leaving garbage behind to stand up in court if a person were to fight a citation. Kinda like stoplight cameras-someone runs a stop light and gets a ticket in the mail based on their license plate #- well, people have been known to borrow their car out to people from time to time, and I would have to say prove it was ME running that light. People do loan out their house and/or move them before seasons up, someone else can plop theirs where mine was.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota snowmobile trail conditions are in good shape. The Baudette trail is great north of Knight Island. Walleye action heats up in periods of stable weather. The best catching is happening in 21-25ft, with the most productive method being a dead-stick beside an actively jigged rattle bait such as a buckshot or rippin’ rap. Glow white/pink is out producing other colors. The late ice bite can be phenomenal on Lake of the Woods, ice permitting we will have houses out through the end of the month!   Canadian fishing is recommended via snowmobile as they are light enough not to drop into the slush as easy as other track vehicles. Crappies are still filling buckets and walleye are actively feeding on reef break lines and points. Walleye season is open through April 14th.    Sunset Lodge
    • Stuff is getting hard to find so best load up on ammo I'd you find it.  Many have rebates going now so that helps some.   I haven't shot the new Feferal TSS shot yet but guys that have report excellent patterns and downrange energy.  Luke Don mentioned 45 yards is doable depending on your gun's pattern.  Two springs ago my dad dumped a big Tom at 54 yards, (misjudged the yardage and bird was working away) with the federal heavyweight in 6 shot with his 20 gauge.  I'm not advocating for shooting those distances, but it's a testmate to how far this ammo has come. 
    • I've been seeing them in corn fields and around home owner homes.
    • if you have gone through a set of carbides in 1000 miles you definitely need to change them now as you are getting a lot of wear 
    • Just a reminder this Seminar is tonight.
    • I did shoot the RX-1 but there was more hand vibration and a little louder. RX-3 did not have any of that . Also could just be in my head but felt smoother in the draw too.
    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
