METRO ARCHERY TURKEY

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone shed light on legality of hunting with archery gear in metro area, anyone do it?

Does it have to be outside city limits or what are laws.

Birds are everywhere in fringe areas and you would not need much space/woods/meadows.

I am in Prior Lake/Shakopee area and birds are everywhere.

Any thoughts on how to find prop owners of small woodlots.

The legality of hunting in the metro depends on the specific city/town/township. I hunt (bow and gun) in the metro area near Stillwater.

All propety owners are listed in the county plat book available at all county offices and the state bookstore.

In previous years the turkey zone you are in had to have at least 50 regular tags to be legal to bow hunt the last couple of weeks. I don't think that changed this year but you should double check that. That could mean that not all areas around the outskirts of the metro are even open for the last couple of week archery hunt.

This is from the city of Shakoppee's web site. They also have a hunting map that shows where hunting is allowed. I am sure Prior Lake has the same thing on their HSOforum.

The City of Shakopee reminds residents and visitors of the following regulations related to hunting and shooting within the City limits.

The shooting of shotguns with shot shells, bow and arrow or BB guns is permitted only in the following areas of the City:

North of the Minnesota River and West of County Road 101.

South of Vierling Drive

Shooting is permitted only on adjoining or continuous tracts of 40 acres or more.

The person shooting must be the landowner or have the written permission of the landowner.

No firearm can be discharged within 500 feet or a building or public road.

Hunting with bow and arrow is allowed on property owned by Northern States Power Company that is North of County State Aid Highway 16, during the Minnesota archery season for deer and with written permission from the landowner.

Other areas where hunting with bow and arrow or with bow and arrow and shotgun with shot shells is allowed include land East of Valleyfair and North of County Road 101.

    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
