New pheasant hunting opportunity available in metro region

1 post in this topic

From the Minnesota DNR

Pheasant hunting will be allowed on a portion of the Vermillion Highlands Research, Recreation and Wildlife Management Area in Dakota County from Dec. 10 through Jan. 1, 2008.

Hunting will be on a first-come first-serve basis. Designated pheasant hunting parking spaces will be available in parking lots. If a space is open, a person may park and go hunting. If all slots are occupied with vehicles, hunters must come back at another time.

Roughly the two southern sections (13 and 14) will be open for pheasant hunting. The area open to hunting is delineated with bright orange signage. Parking will be available on the east side in the parking lot off of Co. Rd. 81 (Clayton Ave.) and from the south at the end of Co. Rd. 79 (Blaine Ave.). There are five designated parking slots in the Clayton Ave. lot and three in the Blaine Ave. lot.

Vermillion Highlands Research, Recreation and Wildlife Management Area is a cooperative project of the DNR and the University of Minnesota, with input from Dakota County. The 2,840 acres of University land came under joint management as part of 2006 Legislation committing state funding for a new Gophers football stadium. A portion of the area opened for limited hunting for the first time this year.

For more information, contact a local DNR wildlife office during business hours at (651) 322-4643.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
