Good planning helps hunters avoid trespassing
The August Canada goose hunt is underway in Minnesota, and the Department of Natural Resources reminds hunters to respect landowners and not trespass.
“The trespass law applies to all outdoor recreation, including hunting, boating, fishing, trapping, hiking and camping,” said Col. Ken Soring, DNR Enforcement director. “When taking part in any outdoor recreation, you may not enter legally posted land or agricultural land without permission.” It is also a violation to enter land that has been legally posted during the calendar year, even if the signs are not currently in place.
Trespass is the biggest problem landowners have with hunters.
