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?

      I went yesterday.  Bite was good.  Saw lots of people catching fish.

      Sorry...been posting a few pics in the Panfish section...I've been out a lot chasing crappies, started 10 days after ice out. I did the eye opener and we did good real shallow 4-6ft with jig and shiner but that one eye outing is it for me unless I go out late fall for them again.  Crappies bite has been real good...just not in normal spots...not many spawned in the shallow reeds but beds we deeper 5-7 ft in many lakes. I've been as far North as Little Bemidji to as far South as S. Lida and many lakes in between. Went out Saturday morning early and found them in 12.5ft suspended real high; used the smallest rap they make and just fan casted all around the boat and they were aggressive.  Cabbage is coming up and healthy in most lakes and they will be moving into the cabbage when it warms up. Water clarity has been unbelievable in every lake I've been on so far. Another yo-yo weather pattern makes it more challenging for sure....but search and you will find.

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.

      The four I use are pretty shallow for at least the first hundred yards, but I've never damaged my boat or prop. Just gotta take it slow and trim the motor up.    I use Isle, Cove, Garrison, and the one near the casino, Shaboshkung or whatever.
