Reminder: Remove Ice Shacks

 Ice anglers are reminded that the last deadline to remove permanent ice shanties from state waters is this Sunday, March 17, when shanties must be removed from waters north of Highway 64 and all other outlying waters by the end of the day. 

Warm temperatures and rain in the forecast could complicate removal so state officials are urging anglers not to wait until the deadline. 

If the deadline has been missed, please contact the DNR Violation Hotline 1-800-847-9367 provide a status report of ongoing attempts to remove, as well as shelter location. 

In addition, if the public is aware of shanty owners who aren't taking responsibility for their shanty, they should also contact the DNR Violation Hotline.
