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.

    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation. 
    • Some times it's just nice getting out of town and when your with the right people a wet weekend can still be fun. This weekend should be better!
    • Cool story! 
    • Reb's old girlfriend might have had a diaphragm, but you would find that one in the lower unit - not in the carburetor...
    • Most of the homeowner's expense comes from heating and cooling inside a home. Double pane windows have gasses like argon or krypton filled to displace the air between the panels. But the problem is when this leaks from the window panes and settles down at the bottom. 1) The main problem that would arise is condensation. The moisture level goes high thus causing mold, mildew and rotting wood sills. 2) If the gas leaks, the window will not provide better insulation. 3) The windows start to make squeaky sounds thus it is hard to close and open. 4) It also affects the stripping to loose. I live here in Canada. In our house, we have double pane windows in almost all the rooms. Now I could see that some of the windows to be in a foggy condition. Will it be due to the gas in the window panes? Should I need to replace the windows? I have heard that casement windows.are good compared to double pane windows. I would like to know the benefits of casement windows. Will it cut down my utility bills? Please do share your thoughts and valuable suggestions. Thanks for the time.
    • We spent last weekend in the camper, holed up hiding from the rain. Not the worst thing ever, but a hike would've been nice. Hopefully we'll have better weather over Memorial Day. It looks good now so I'm excited. 
    • I am in a confusion on which one to choose. I have anyways decided to separate the bath area from the toilet. Which one would be better? I don't have enough area in the bathroom. One of my friends said that when it comes to energy efficiency and water conservation, a quick shower virtually always beats a bath. Is it true??   Although it is good for relaxing and ideal for bathing small children, I think it will be difficult for older people and people with injuries to get in and out. When it comes to the case of water heaters also I think it will be difficult to fill the tub. I think all these issues can be sorted out using a shower. Showers always need only less water. But if there is any leak, it will be difficult to fix.   I personally prefer bathtubs. Although it has many disadvantages compared to showers, the relaxation and freshness we get after bathing in a tube are very different. What is your opinion? Based on your opinion, I want to fix my decision and approach a plumbing company for installing it. Feel free to share your thoughts.
