It's over as of today - yes?


Yes, over for regular firearm deer season. Muzzleloader season starts Friday the 5th and runs through the 21st down here. But there are not nearly as many black powder hunters as during the past two weeks. Also, small game hunting is allowed through Mar 31st.

He broke one of the cardinal rules of hunting, you don't aim a gun at movement period. As a hunter this absolutley disgusts me.

Here is the story from The Freep.

Not downplaying the actions of the idiot hunter at all, but the story says nothing about what the "walker" was wearing. I see all kinds of oblivious people walking (and riding) around hunting land with natural (black, tan, brown) colored clothing on. Again, not taking away from the actions of the moronic hunter (shooting at "movement") but some people seem to almost TRY to resemble game. Baze orange, high vis yellow or other bright "non-natural" colors really stands out once the trees are bare.

My name is Paul and I have been a ranger with the department since 2001. Currently, I am working as the Lead Worker at Bald Mountain RA for the forseeable future, tho this may change. Please feel free to contact me via these forums or at the park office regarding trail issues at Bald Mountain.


A bit late but thanks a lot Paul and you are very welcome. It is nice to see that the trail will get some attention. If you guys are short staffed maybe few trail days under DNR guidance would help?

Bald Mountain North was in great shape today especially for my first ever fat bike ride. No trees down a little ice here and there but a great time.

Cool!
My first fatbike ride was on 12/3/2010 at Bald Mountain North also. Took a half day to come home to this on my porch!

Nice bike! I just bought a used (3 rides) gravity bullseye monster. I have enough invested in my other bikes. This seems like great bang for the buck!Image

Hello,
We've just managed to get the trails clear of downed trees from the high winds last week, 14 total between the North and South units. As of 12/3 the south is clear and 12/4 for the north.

Have a good weekend,
