Special youth deer hunt

9 posts in this topic

Just found out over the phone that my son was accepted into St. Croix State Park for the youth hunt, can't wait. Anyone else found out yet. Supposedly the results of the lottery are on the website but couldn't find it.

I recieved confirmation in the mail yesterday from the DNR. It's my daughter's first year hunting, so I am really pumped that she was able to get drawn. Probably more exited than she is.

What do most of you do when hunting with your youth son or daughter? Do you use a 2-man deer stand or seperate stands, the reason I ask is this is my 1st youth hunt with my son and I have a 2 man deer stand but being you can't have ATV's in the state park it is going to be hard to have to lug that big thing around any distance.

Most of the parks have a nice trail system,so if you have a deer cart you might be able to cart it out.I've hunted with my daughter on high ground with a good view with success and I've also put 2 portable stands close together.

You may want to try a pop up ground blind. They are great for kids as they can move about a bit more without spooking game. You can also bring food, drinks and other things to keep them entertained during the slow times.

      As far as I'm aware, the two main spawning spots are the Pike River on the east end and Black Lake on the west end. That said I think that walleye are probably spawning in many different areas around the lake. IMO it's kind of fun to look for those hidden gem areas.

      Information about chronic wasting disease and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ management response to its discovery in two deer near Lanesboro will be the focus of a public meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Fillmore Central School Auditorium, 702 Chatfield St., in Preston.  DNR staff will explain the disease and why a quick and aggressive response is the most effective way to limit its spread. They also will discuss response measures including establishment of a disease management zone, a special winter deer hunt, landowner shooting permits and the necessity to conduct an aerial deer population survey. Representatives from other state agencies and deer hunting groups also will be available to answer questions. Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain disease to deer, elk and moose but is not known to affect human health. Prior to this discovery, the disease has only been found in Minnesota in one wild deer harvested near Pine Island in 2010. For more information, including maps of chronic wasting disease surveillance areas, common questions and answers and hunter information, visit the DNR’s CWD homepage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.
