would like to request those of you that have time to write letters to the Minnesota DNR, especially the Environmentalists have people outside of Beltrami county writing letters to the DNR.
Please take your time to do this to keep parts of the Mississippi Headwaters State Forest open and areas in Beltrami County (Minnesota) open to ATV/ORV use.

I have a copy of the comment form and have transfered the comments onto this post:

Background Links:

The Mississippi Headwaters is near Wilton, MN. This area countains nice wheeling landscape by abandoned railroad tracks, gravel pits etc.


Also I don't want Beltrami Country to end up like Southern Minnesota, No place to wheel, shoot and hunt!
