Are you sure if this will qualify for the Minnesota DNR Bowhunter Ed certificate? I belive that is required for the Duluth hunt.

Fishermn,

This is the one class and yes it will, They will still have to pass the shooting test put on by the ABA. To be in the city Hunt, I will be taking Austen to this one as well so he can hunt with me this year. He is really looking forward to it I just hope he passes his shooting test? I will tell him he has to shoot three nights a week till he takes the test laugh.gif. He will do just fine and will love this hunt as much as I do and the Bucks I let walk will be there for him this year as well as all the Doe's. I do not think he will have an interest in shooting his gun again. I hope not for a wile. Call the number if you would like to sine up it is a lot of fun to get your kids involved in a great sport smile.gif.

Thanks Tom, I was just curious if this was DNR sponsored class. They were pretty picky when I took my bowhunter ed class acouple years ago. Jr already has his and has hunted the Duluth hunt the last 2 years with me. No buck for him yet, but I did manage to get his first bow harvest on tape this season. That was pretty cool. I'll probably see ya in the woods this weekend. Sounds like there will be a LOT of guys out looking for sheds! I'll probably be concentrating in the area we hunted. You and I both know that big boy survived the season grin.gif I hope he shows up this fall... shocked.gif

City deer hunt to continue in the fall

Sam Cook Duluth News Tribune

Published Tuesday, April 10, 2007

The City of Duluth has extended its contract with the Arrowhead Bowhunters Alliance to manage a bowhunt for deer within city limits this fall.

As the current contract requires, a review panel met March 30 to evaluate the ABA’s handling of the 2006 hunt, said Carl Seehus, the city’s Parks and Recreation director.

“We found they [the ABA] had performed extremely well what they were supposed to do for us,” Seehus said. The group also conducted the 2005 hunt.

The City Council does not have to vote on the contract extension because last spring’s contract was for two years, provided the ABA met its obligations. Seehus wrote a letter to the City Council recommending an automatic extension of the contract.

Seehus said the review panel recommended two minor changes. One would require the ABA to keep for five years the ethics oaths signed by hunters. The other would require hunters to put name tags on the elevated stands they use in the hunt.

In addition, it’s likely that a few small additions will be made to the designated hunting areas within city limits, Seehus said. Some residents have notified the city of areas that they would like to have included in the hunt. Last year, the hunt was conducted in 20 zones across the city, totaling about 20,000 acres.

One hundred ninety-five hunters harvested 564 deer, up from 331 taken in 2005, according to the ABA.

This fall’s city hunt will begin Sept. 15, concurrent with the statewide bowhunting season.

Sharpen your shooting skills and shoot strait and we will see ya this fall cool.gif.

Are the dates you posted all the class dates, i mean do you have to attend all those nights, or do you have to choose one of those nights. Or is the choice only for the written test date?? Kinda confused about that? If its too late to sign up seeing the class starts tomorrow, do you know if there are any other places that such classes will be held?

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....
    • IceHawk
      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
