Limited motorized recreation use during the firearms deer season
Web posted November 6, 2018
The Crow Wing County Land Services Department wants to remind off highway vehicle users that recreational riding on forest trails passing through Crow Wing County administered public lands is prohibited during the 2018 State firearms deer hunting season.
This restriction does not preclude the deer hunter, with a valid deer hunting license, to operate an off-highway vehicle (OHV) before legal shooting time, from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm, or after legal shooting hours.
This restriction is in effect from November 3-18, inclusive, in Zone 100 (north of CR #1 and east of State Highway 6) and November 3-11, inclusive, in Zone 200. All recreational users of county forest lands are reminded to wear blaze orange while they are out in the field during this hunting season.
Crow Wing County Land Services manages 105,000 acres of forest land for timber production and diverse recreational opportunities for multiple users. The sale of timber at public auctions funds the county’s management of these lands, while providing revenues to local communities. County forest lands are managed to strict environmental standards established by both the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and the Minnesota Forest Resources Council.
