Numerous hunts are scheduled to take place at Minnesota state parks this fall, as a way to help control the deer population in the parks. Our goal is to ensure healthy natural communities. If too many deer are in one area, the native plants and animals are negatively affected.
Access to the parks varies around the state during these hunts. Some state parks remain open to all visitors, some have limited public access, and some are open only to hunters with special permits.
This site provides information to non-hunters during the hunt season. If you are a hunter, you'll find more information here.
For additional information, please call the facility before you head out.
Stay safe during hunting season!
