Hello everyone. I own a piece of property (~2 acres) within the city limits of Coon Rapids and have a few deer on the property...can I bowhunt this or do I need a special tag from the city?

99.999999% sure you need a special tag and I bet 150% no way in heck they would let you rifle hunt it. Bowhunting would be the only way if they let you.

Contact Coon Rapids to see if their discharge ordinance covers archery equipment and if they allow hunting. Most cities don't give special discharge permits, rather, they'll say you can or can't. If you can, you just need to stay within the regular season dates (9/16-12/31) and use state licenses/permits. Oh, and be mindful of your neighbors. Nothing looks worse than a deer dying in someone elses backyard.

Good luck.

I'm pretty sure that Coon Rapids doens't allow any hunting, and if they did it would be unlikely you would be allowed anyway. Most cities only allow hunting on larger parcels. Chanhassen is the smallest I know of and they say 3 acresa nd it can't be in a platted neighborhood.

Call the PD or check at city hall. Its really easy. You'll get a yes or no anser. If no one knows, call the city clerk. They can look up the actual ordinance in the citys laws.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
