News from Lake Kabetogama, Minnesota

Welcome to Lake Kabetogama.org, a place to share information on the Lake Kabetogama area.
Lake Kabetogama is one of four vast, interconnected lakes in Voyageurs National Park. Lake Kabetogama, Rainy Lake, Namakan Lake, and Sand Point Lake are part of the 14,900-square-mile Rainy Lake basin. Lake Kabetogama is about 25000 acres in size with about 200 islands and has a maximum depth of about 90 feet.

Lake Kabetogama has hundreds of island campsites

maintained by the Park with docks, tent pads, campfire rings and primitive toilets. Most also have lockable bear boxes for your food. Some of my favorites are Windigo Bay, great views, Cutover Island on the south side, Grassy Island site, another one with great views, but it does have bears at times,  and my favorite, Blue Fin Bay, which has great crappie fishing, views and lots of wildlife.

The following is from the Voyageurs National Park web site-
Sleep under the stars in one of over 200 designated campsites in Voyageurs National Park. Be serenaded by loons, and listen for the chance to hear the howl of a wolf. (more…)

Good waterfowl opener expected this weekend

Duck hunting is expected to be good when Minnesota’s regular waterfowl season opens a half-hour before sunrise on Saturday, Sept. 23.

“The number of breeding ducks in Minnesota and North America has been good in recent years, so we’re optimistic that will result in a good duck season,” said Steve Cordts, waterfowl specialist with the Department of Natural Resources. “Wetland habitat conditions and wild rice lakes are in pretty good shape.  Canada goose populations remain high as well, so there’s lots of opportunity to hunt geese this fall.”

Duck seasons and limits
The duck season structure is similar to recent years. The waterfowl seasons are based on a federal framework that applies to all states in the Mississippi Flyway. Waterfowl hunting regulations are available wherever DNR licenses are sold and online at mndnr.gov/regulations/hunting.

Duck season will be open for 60 days in each of the three waterfowl zones:

  • In the north zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Tuesday, Nov. 21.
  • In the central zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Sunday, Oct. 1, closes for five days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 7, and runs through Sunday, Nov. 26.
  • In the south zone, duck season is Sept. 23 through Oct. 1, closes for 12 days, then reopens Saturday, Oct. 14, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 3.

The daily duck bag limit remains six per day. The mallard bag limit remains four per day, including no more than two hen mallards. The daily bag limits are three for wood duck and scaup; and two for redheads, canvasbacks and black ducks and one for pintails.

The DNR will post a weekly waterfowl migration report each week during the duck season. The reports are typically posted on Thursday afternoon at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.

Goose and sandhill crane seasons
Minnesota’s goose season will reopen in conjunction with the duck season statewide on Sept. 23, with a bag limit of three dark geese per day the entire season. “Dark” geese include Canada geese, white-fronted geese and brant. The daily bag limit for light geese is 20. “Light geese” include snow, blue and Ross’s geese.  Goose season will be closed in the central and south duck zones when duck season is closed.

The season for sandhill cranes remains open through Sunday, Oct. 22 in the northwest goose and sandhill crane zone only. The daily bag limit will be one sandhill crane per day. A $3 sandhill crane permit is required in addition to a small game hunting license.

More information on duck, goose, sandhill crane and other migratory bird hunting is available in the 2017 Minnesota Waterfowl Hunting Regulations booklet from license vendors and online at mndnr.gov/hunting/waterfowl.

Citizens can apply to serve on Lake of the Woods input group

Citizens interested in volunteering to discuss Lake of the Woods fish and habitat can apply to participate in the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Applications must be completed by Monday, Oct. 10, and are available online at mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods.

“Input provided by this group will be used to update the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan for 2018 to 2023,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette area fisheries supervisor.

“Volunteers will give valuable stakeholder perspectives regarding important fisheries and habitat protection strategies for Lake of the Woods and the surrounding watershed,” Talmage said.

Group members will meet five or six times between December and May to cover topics including walleye and sauger management, sportfish population objectives, habitat priorities and invasive species.

Talmage said protecting the high quality resources within Lake of the Woods is important.

“While walleye in Lake of the Woods are a big focus of the DNR’s management efforts, the lake also offers a wide range of fishing and other recreational opportunities that are vital to local communities, important to northern Minnesota and of significant value statewide,” Talmage said.

For additional information on the Lake of the Woods fisheries input group and the self-nomination process, contact the DNR Baudette area fisheries office, 218-634-2522.

MSNBC Guest on Jemele Hill Controversy: The White House Is Saying It’s Okay to Not Hire Black People

During Sunday’s “PoliticsNation,” ESPN “The Undefeated” writer William Rhoden weighed in on the controversy surrounding ESPN anchor Jemele Hill. Hill tweeted this week that President Donald Trump is a “white supremacist,” a statement the White House called a “fireable offense.” Rhoden said Trump and the White House are telling the “racist” sports media and other white people that it is “OK” to not hire black people. “[T]he problem with the White House is that it’s created an atmosphere where they’re telling white folks ‘it’s okay,’” Rhoden explained. “It’s okay not to hire black folks. It’s OK to grab your Confederate flag or your Nazi flag and walk openly. It’s okay to do that.” Rhoden then vowed that black people would start “fighting fire with fire.” “It’s economics. We’re going to start boycotting. We’re going to start boycotting the organizations who support our enemy,” he added. Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

DNR opens public comment period on draft PolyMet dam safety and public waters work permits

The Department of Natural Resources is seeking comments, from Sept. 15 through Oct. 16, on two draft dam safety permits and a draft public waters work permit for the Poly Met Mining, Inc. (PolyMet) NorthMet mining project. The permits relate to a proposed copper-nickel mine near Hoyt Lakes in northeastern Minnesota.
This is the public’s opportunity to submit written comments on these draft permits.
One draft dam safety permit covers the proposed flotation tailings basin, which would receive tailings (a mixture of finely ground waste rock and water) after the commercially recoverable copper, nickel and other elements are removed. This proposed tailings basin would be on the site of the existing tailings basin of the historic LTV iron ore mine.

The second draft dam safety permit covers the proposed hydrometallurgical residue facility, which would receive residue (mostly gypsum) generated from a process that would use pressure and temperature reactions to extract additional precious metals beyond what can be achieved by the primary processing facility.

PolyMet initially submitted its dam safety permit applications in July 2016. Since then, the DNR, its external consultant Emmons Olivier Resources, Inc. (EOR), and a team of top geotechnical dam safety experts assessed the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of the proposed NorthMet dams. This team included experts in mining geotechnical engineering with both Minnesota and worldwide experience. The group included a member of the review panel that previously investigated the Mount Polley dam failure in British Columbia.

The DNR considered input from state, local, and tribal government technical experts. The applications have been used to create the two draft dam safety permits, which the DNR is now releasing for public comment.

The DNR dam safety permit program regulates the construction, operation, and maintenance of Minnesota dams to protect public health, safety and welfare. Minnesota rules establish standards and criteria for dams, which cover both initial permitting and ongoing regulatory oversight.

PolyMet also submitted an application for a public waters work permit in May 2017. The DNR recently completed its comprehensive review of this application, and considered input from state, local, and tribal government technical experts to create the draft public waters work permit.

The draft public waters work permit is for a culvert extension to widen Dunka Road, the connecting road between the proposed NorthMet plant site and mine site. It would extend the culvert on Unnamed Creek, which is a tributary to Wyman Creek, a public water.
The DNR public waters work permit program applies to public water basins, wetlands, and watercourses. A public waters work permit may be required for proposed projects that affect the course, current, or cross-section of public waters.

The DNR is seeking public comments on these three draft permits before making any permitting decisions. Commenters should include the words “NorthMet Dam Safety” or “NorthMet Public Waters” in the title of their comment emails or letters.

Written comments may be submitted no later than Oct. 16, by email to:
NorthMetPermitting.DNR@state.mn.us or by U.S. mail to:

MN Department of Natural Resources
ATTN: PolyMet NorthMet Project
500 Lafayette Road N, Box 45
St. Paul, MN 55155-4045

In addition to the two dam safety permits and the public waters work permit, the project would need nine additional DNR permits, as well as several other state, federal and local permits and approvals in order to proceed.

The DNR permits and approvals that are needed before the proposed NorthMet project could proceed, include the permit to mine (including financial assurance and wetlands replacement), water appropriation permits, dam safety permits, public waters work permit, burning permit, and an endangered species takings permit. A timeline of the permitting process is available from the DNR’s PolyMet website.

PolyMet’s dam safety and public waters work permit applications, along with DNR’s draft permits and fact sheets, are available on the State’s PolyMet Portal (click on the DNR link).

Paleontology Day featured at Hill Annex Mine State Park

Hill Annex Mine State Park, in partnership with the Calumet Public Library, will host a special Paleontology Day on Saturday, Sept. 23 with a day of fossil hunting tours. Staff from the Science Museum of Minnesota will help lead the fossil hunting tours and assist visitors with identification.  

The park gates will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tours begin at 10 a.m. and last about 1 hour, 15 minutes.  The final tour will depart at 2 p.m. and return at 3:15 p.m.

Tours begin at the clubhouse museum, then board a bus for a short trip through the complex and stop at the fossil/ore pile. Visitors can spend as much time as they wish digging through the fossil/ore pile and have the option to return to the clubhouse on a later bus.

Tours prices are $10 for adults, $6 for children age 6 and older, and free for children age 5 and younger.

Historical archivist, Ian Dunshee, will be on site throughout the day presenting his work on cataloging the oral histories of former mine workers and artifacts from the mine.

“Hill Annex Mine State Park officially closed for the season on Labor Day Weekend, but we wanted to offer a day dedicated to the paleontology work that was conducted here by the Science Museum of Minnesota,” said park manager, Jordan Schaefer. Visitors are invited to bring a picnic lunch and make use of the picnic area. No RSVP is required.

Hill Annex Mine State Park is located at 800 Gary Street, Calumet, Minn. Entrance to the park is on the north edge of Calumet off State Highway 169, halfway between Grand Rapids and Hibbing.

Questions about the Paleontology Day program can be directed to Scenic State Park office at 218-743-3362. More information about Hill Annex Mine State Park can be found at www.mndnr.gov/state_parks/hill_annex_mine.
