Lost Hunter a cache in a prime deer hunting area. The container has a number of items, always something for the kids. This is dedicated to a young hunter who found himself lost in this area.

I named this cache after a young hunter from the cities who found himself lost when hunting behind Calumet. He ended up walking all the way to the Sucker Lake area north of Nashwauk. I picked him up in Nashwauk to help transport him back to his hunting site, as he was not really sure where that was as he came with his brother and friends. I asked him if he had a compass, and he said yes. I then asked him if he used it when lost and this is the story he told me. His brother had told him he would not take this young hunter with him hunting unless he got himself a compass. Well, the young hunter did just that, but when they got to the hunting camp, his brother realized he had forgotten his own companss and talked the young hunter into lending his to the brother. A lesson learned..... The young hunter was dripping with sweat, all his cloths saturated.

It is possible to drive to this cache, actually from two different starting points. One is on Itasca County Road 58, the other on Itasca County Highwy 7.

If you need help, just email for a map, etc.

Good luck, and be sure to bring your compass.

Did you know that I have found this cache no less than 5 times? I have some land around here (Camp Sqa-ta-lot) and am up here constantly. I stop in to check on this cache with my Toonks, with my Scouts and by myself.

The last time I was here was last September with my Toonks. Most of the grass trampling is probably from me come to think of it.

This is one of the very first caches that I ever found and one of the most memorable.

Enjoyed the story about the hunter--good one. We never know where Taconite will take us, but we sure enjoying exploring the backcountry that he choses for his cache placements. Check out Dinger's log for "Pit Lake" on www.geocaching.com. Since not everybody is using Navicache.com, we'll claim FTF on this one, but leave the dollar for the next cacher. TNLNSL. Thanks, Tac!
