Ramsey County Parks & Recreation, in partnership with the Metro Bowhunters Resource Base, will again conduct controlled archery deer hunts this fall throughout the county parks system.
Daylong hunts will be conducted at eight park and trail locations on select dates in October and November. Two separate hunts will be held at each location. Each hunt period is three days long, with the second hunt occurring two to three weeks after the first.
Many of the locations are the same as those used in previous years. No hunt will be conducted in Bald Eagle-Otter Lakes Regional Park or Grass Lake Park in 2017.
