I might be mistaken but I think target shooting is not allowed on most kinds of public land????

Perch is correct. Target and indiscriminate shooting is not allowed on most public land. I'm not sure about state forests, but it is definitely illegal on WMA's and WPA's, SNA's and state parks.

We used to target shoot in Sanddunes state forest in Zimmerman, but not sure if you can anymore.

No indiscriminate (aka target) shooting in any MN state forest including Sand Dunes State Forest.

Mr.FisherMan I don't think there is any public land open to target shooting in MN. Maybe some tax-forfeited lands? I would suggest finding someone with private land who would let you practice on their land in exchange for you letting them shoot some of your clays. I would help ya out if you were on the west side of town and bow season wasn't a week away.

Good Luck!

Can not in Sand Dunes that range was shut down and is now a horse camp what a joke-my hometown in South Dakota has a nice public range complete with benches all free to use.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )

    • In this depth range I still use the DT10. Unless the weeds are growing up quite a bit. If they are then I will use the DT6.
