Metro Hunting

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.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
