Default RE: Minnesota Bowhunters

ORIGINAL: jmjuergensen

Hey everyone. I'm just curious who in the forum is from Minnesota? I'm new to bowhunting, but have rifle hunted in Northern MN for the last 10 years. I'm just curious where everyone hunts in MN? We own some land near Leech Lake, but Icurrently live in the Twin Cities. I was just curious what kind of public land is out there in the metro area for the weekends when I can't make it upNorth, or where I could find out where the public area is. Also, any other tips/advice you'd be willing to give based on your experiences would be much appreciated. If you'd rather send me a PM with some other info, that'd be cool as well, whichever you prefer. I'd be really cool to get to know some of the MN guys (and others in the forum as well) and share experiences with each other.

I know there are quite a few MN guys (and gals I'm sure) who have a ton of knowledge, and as a newbie, I'm just trying to soak up as much as I can.

Thanks in advance!
Hey there homeslice. I live in Coon Rapids. I do quite a bit of bowhunting out in the state land in the Sand Dunes state forest and the Sherburne National Wildlife refuge. They are connected lands up by the Big Lake Orrock area. Lots of land that very fewbowhunt. You can do a search of this land on the MinnesotaDNR website.Search under "hunting land" and you will get lots of possibilities with maps of all state and federal lands in the state.
If you live metro then you may want to consider the Sand Dunes and Sherburne Wildlife refuge. There is other public lands all around the metro counties though that you can hunt as well.
Where in the metro you at?
