Have you ever seen a SnoBear?
I had not. So when I saw one in a parking lot, I naturally had to get a photo. I wondered what does a SnoBear do anyways?
I wondered if it was some kind of snow machine that gave elderly citizens a chance to get out on the trails. It was heated or appeared to be. I wondered how many people could have a ride at once.
My wondering was interrupted by the owner, he said “I bet you have never seen one like this before?” No I had not. I made my guess and he laughed. Turns out he is from the little village of Eagle Bend and purchased this vehicle second hand. He asked if I would like to see inside? Well of course I would! He was a very nice gentleman, either that or he was used to old lady gawkers with cameras.
It is a fish house, he had been fishing over on Leech Lake. This vehicle/fancy fish house is on a track and it can raise and lower itself by 14 inches. Some models have bunks, so you can catch a nap or fish all night! I didn’t see bunks in this one, it had two captains chairs.
He was off to a new fishing spot!
Minnesota’s winters are way too long for many people.
