Please exercise great caution when using the lakebottoms because they have changed significantly. There is no guarantee that walking, hunting, etc. on the lakebottoms will be safe.
Snowmobiling: Officials recommend residents do not use the lakebottoms for snowmobiling. With many stumps, trees, water and uneven terrain, the lakebottoms will present hidden dangers this winter. First responders will conduct practice simulations November 3-4 to simulate rescuing stranded and injured persons from the bottomlands.
Hunting: For everyone's safety, deer hunting is not permitted on the lakebottoms. Bird hunting should be limited to locations you've hunted before. Hunting on private property is not allowed and hunting is forbidden within 450 feet of an occupied building unless by written permission from the owner.
Four Lakes Task Force assumes no liability or responsibility for any harm or damage that occurs on the lakebottoms due to hunting. Individuals hunt at their own risk. Those who choose to hunt should not use a rifle and instead use a shotgun with no longer than a 2" shell. Any damage to property caused by personal firearms is the hunter's responsibility.
