? on hunting area near jorday belle plaine

14 posts in this topic

good morning I was wondering if anyone is familiar with the following area.

heading on 169 towards belle plain after you pass jordan, right after the APPLE ORCHARD place is an adjacent land that i saw some signs on looked like the ones with ducks on it or whatever. I was wondering if that is a legal area to bow hunt for deer. I tried looking on the DNR COMPASS and It doesnt list it at all.

That is MN Valley National wildlife refuge land. Some of it is open to certain game and some of it isn't check their HSOforum or pick up a flier that they have available at most parking locations along the refuge.

PRIM (public hunting area) maps, and your 2008 Hunting and Trapping handbook are good sources for the information you are looking for. From what I was reading I would say the area you are describing is closed.

I know when turkey and deer season roll around, the private land around it has a lot of people on it.

I used to hunt some private land there, but there are too many people tresspassing without permission who try to sneak in there. My cousins family owns some of the land and he won't hunt there anymore after almost getting shot. The CO and sheriff keep a close eye on it now. Don't get caught down there without written permission from the right person who's land your on.

I'm pretty sure it is a no hunting zone. If we are thinking of the same property.
