From the MNRF
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is seeking the public’s help in identifying the individual(s) responsible for abandoning an ice hut on Lake of the Woods near Kenora.
Back in the spring, conservation officers received complaints of an ice hut floating in open water on the west side of Coney Island in Lake of the Woods.
Conservation officers were unable to locate the ice hut at that time.
However, it later resurfaced and has been recovered.
The ice hut measures eight feet long by six feet wide and seven feet high. It has one window and is covered entirely with silver tin.
The inside is insulated with purple insulation and there are holes cut in the floor for fishing.
The ice-fishing hut sits on homemade wooden skis with white runners or sliders, and has a homemade heavy-duty metal tow bar attached.
It is believed the ice hut originally was located on the ice in the Gun Club Island area at the end of the ice-fishing season in 2017.
If you have any information about this ice hut, contact the MNRF toll-free at 1-877-847-7667.
You also can call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
