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 never got around to scouting it, wish I would have. I spent a lot of time in Dunes and other small WMA scattered in the 601 zone to take advantage of the unlimited antlerless harvest. I know there is some good duck hunting to be had in Sherburne too if I can get away from the idiots. That seems to be a difficult task when waterfowl hunting within a 20 mile radius of the metro.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.
