Ice shanty removal dates

While ice shanties are an important shelter from the elements, it’s never too early to make a plan for removal ahead of the close of the season.

All permanent shanties, or those not removed daily, must be removed from state waters by March 15.

Other shanty removal dates are:

  • Feb. 20 — Wisconsin-Iowa boundary waters
  • March 1 — Wisconsin-Minnesota boundary waters
  • First Sunday following March 1 — inland waters south of Highway 64
  • First Sunday following March 12 — Lake Michigan, Green Bay, Lake Superior and inland waters north of Highway 64
  • March 15 — Wisconsin-Michigan boundary waters
