Hunting on State Land in Houston County?

6 posts in this topic

I have found 3 or 4 WMA's on the DNR website, but when I look at a plat book for Houston County, there is a ton of 'State Land' that is not listed as a WMA. What is this state land considered? Can you hunt on it....how do you get an official listing of where it is?

Thanks.

Most of the state land in Houston county is state forest land which I believe you CAN NOT hunt on.

From the DNR website:

"Hunting, trapping, and fishing in state forests is allowed during the appropriate season and with the correct license. State game refuges within state forests are closed to hunting unless listed as open."

Well then I would say go for it!! I am actually glad that I was wrong! Cause there is a ton of state forest land in Houston county. I have worked down there a few times this past summer and looked at some of it closey. Very good deer hunting land for sure.

95% of the state forest is private property. The public land will be marked separately with signs.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
