Arden hills youth hunt ?

3 posts in this topic

A buddies kid got picked for the youth hunt at the arden hills armory. Anyone hunt or been in there? We know where he should set up. We drove around it and kinda scouted you can see the hills trees pond so we have an idea of what it looks like. Any extra info would be great its his kids first big bow hunt the kid past up 3 small 6 pts. already waiting for arden hills.

Some big deer in that area. I drive by it every morning, wishing I had a youth to take hunting! I routinely see 4-5 deer walking the roads in the stretch paralelling Cty Road I. I've seen (a couple times) a buck that looks to be at least 140". Last time it had it's nose in a tree, so I couldn't count points (especially at 45 mph!). It seems to be at least an 8 pt., but I'm leaning towards 10. Anyway, hope your buddies kid has a blast. Post pics if he arrows the big one.

Send him my way. I've done quite a bit of field-work out there relating to my job. I'll be able to help out as I've spent many hours out there driving around and working.

I'm envious. I saw the largest buck of my life out there two years ago. The thing was an even 12 that probably taped around 24+ inches wide, and heavy the whole way through. I got to watch it for about 2 minutes, and it ended up about 15 yards from me before it saw me. Never saw him again.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
