******THE CACHE IS NOT AT THE POSTED COORDINATES, TO FIND THE CACHE YOU MUST FIRST SOLVE THE FOLLOWING PUZZLE********
Every fall hundreds of hopeful hunters come to Rush Lake in hopes of bagging their limit of ducks, and I’m know exception to that. Since I was a little kid my dad has been taking me duck hunting each fall on the lake. So I thought I place a cache in a place that is special to me. Before they built the boat launch, you used to have to use the hand crank that is on top of the hill to get your boat or canoe down to the lake and then back up again.
You are looking for a medium sized snap lid container. Around hunting season in the fall I may disable this cache for a few weeks due the high muggle traffic.
You will have to visit the Wisconsin DNR website and find the page on the Rush Lake Project to get the info need to get the coordinates to the cache.
