Permethrin just isn't convenient here in Nowhere, MN these days Amazon to the rescue again, eh?

Went up to the Angle of the Inlet today for a burger and a tour with my brother. My (our, he had one too) little passport card made the whole process much easier, thankfully. The weather was frightful, so it was a good use of the day. Interesting country up there.

Look like a place to productively hunt, or, a place to say you did it, just to say you did it? Always wanted to poke my nose into that area, but, I have to drive past so many other good looking spots to do so.

Is it possible to visit without a passport? I know you can theoretically do that in a boat, but, what about by car or truck?

Best,
Ted

Ted:

Not entirely sure but I believe a passport or a passport card is now mandatory. The Canadian border guard even threatens to take your vehicle if you don't call-in when you come back across the unmanned border into Canada to come home (they issue you a number that you could present to prove you have complied) and they provide a phone at that unmanned border with the Angle to do just that. The passport card surely helps when you come back into the US of A as well, as it conveniently identifies you to everybody involved. You also have to check-in with the American authorities on a computer notepad when you arrive up there, so everybody is watching.

The fact that you must deal with these various Federal authorities seems to be a damper for lots of folks. I know that before I had a passport card I usually just avoided the thought of going up there. It seemed like too-much work and bother. Even the boating folks have to check in up there now it seems, not sure how they enforce that.

Hunting up there should be ok, provided you have a way to get a gun there (not sure what that involves or even if you can through Canada now). Using a boat should solve that issue but I'd wonder how intense things are there for that (being where you are). The real estate we drove through seems to be state of Minnesota park land. I had somehow understood it to be mostly an Indian reservation, but I saw now signs of that being the case.

Not hard to get a gun in at all.

Brent: not surprised to hear that (it used to be doable). But with the enhanced presence ( & posture) of all the agencies involved now...I'd bet it's still a chore.

If you're flying up there in a floatplane and staying in one of the island resorts, I'd guess that it would be fairly easy (money always seems to greese the skids for that sort of stuff). But for the hoi polloi, I suspect it might be bit more work.

Absolutely not. It would be hard to be simpler, actually.

I've hunted the Aulneau Peninsula twice for moose. A buddy and his two sons hunted it last fall for grouse.

Don't be all doom and gloom. Just go.

Allright...the voice of experience seems to say otherwise.

It's nice to hear that you guys have such great places to hunt. And Lloyd, it looks like you have a great place to stay up there. I hope things go well for you guys this year on your hunting expeditions. Good luck! 👍

We seem to be having boat problems today, so... not feeling all that lucky at the moment. BOAT stands for "Bust Out Another Thousand" up here (& probably everywhere else too). Both boats are actually down at the moment. It might even end-up abbreviating my trip as it stands right now. Not much to do here if you can't fish.
