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.

      We're a little over a week away from the 6th annual LCRA Ice Fishing contest on Lake Gervais in Little Canada, MN! Lots of great prizes, over $10,000 in prizes and raffle. Grand prize for fishing is a Marcum flasher, a Clam X200 flip over thermal and an Eskimo auger! Come on out Saturday, February 4th, noon to 3pm. Line up early for a good spot, the tent will open by 9am with beverages (alcohol and non-alcohol), food and raffle tickets. The raffle is the LCRA's winter raffle. $5 tickets, grand prize is a trip to Vegas and $1,000 cash! You don't have to be present to win in the raffle, that will be drawn after the prizes for the fishing contest around 4pm that day.   The Little Canada Recreation Association is a non-profit group that raises money to offset registration fees for youth in the Little Canada, Roseville, Maplewood and Vadnais Heights areas. We also fund scout projects, playground equipment and many types of sports equipment for area teams.   For more information on the LCRA or to register for fishing, go to www.lcraonline.org

      So as far as live bait rigging what works best? Shiners? Suckers? Fatheads? As far as this time of year goes.

      Like someone else said, some of the places with the old school $2-$5 beer and $6-$10 burger pricing have also been owned for a long time and were paid off long ago. According to the county website, the landing has 300+ feet of lakeshore (which isn't cheap), a tax bill that's 3 times what the VC pays, 10 times the dock space to maintain and given that it's was purchased relatively recently, they likely a mortgage to pay. The Crescent is also a relatively recent purchase. But the Crescent has a less expensive location, lower taxes and is more centrally located in terms of road access (important during the 4-5 months of the year when boating and snowmobiling taper off).   Overhead is going to play a role in the pricing of any business. You have your total sales minus your overhead and that's your profit. You can't sell the same thing at the same price with significantly more overhead because you're not going to make any money. Yes, you can offset low margins with a higher number of sales, but with a very short snowmobile season and a relatively short boating season that can be pretty difficult.   I'll be the first to agree that the pricing is on the high side, but the food is also a step up from some of the other options with lake accessibility. My guess is that after evaluating the various price points, the owners decided that the current business model is where they stand the best chance at turning a profit and keeping the doors open. If $2 beers and $5 burgers were a slam dunk way to make money, I'm sure that they'd be doing it because it would be a lot easier.   Whether it be lakeside bars/restaurants or marinas, there are less and less of them every year because the cost of lakeshore and the taxes (which usually increase after a recent sale) make it almost impossible to compete with places that were paid off a generation ago. When these restaurants and marinas close, townhomes and cabins usually replace them so I'm happy to pay the prices if it means another option when it comes to eating or grabbing some drinks on the lake.

      I see I should have done a more thorough search. The smitty sled looks to be the ideal solution to my issues. Thanks guys. Now I have a project.
