St. Louis County Land Explorer Update! January 31, 2018

We are advising that everyone stops using the mobile app and remove it from your phone. The mobile ‘Explorer’ app is no longer reliable or kept up-to-date. The web application is now the preferred tool and has been built to operate on mobile devices as well as desktop. The web application now includes DHA boundaries as well.

After launching the App, in the upper right corner, there is a tab with drop downs. Select ‘Recreation’.

2017 Year-End Survey January 2, 2018

Greetings Hunters,

You will find the link for the survey in the blue member links menu after you login.

This survey is absolutely 100% anonymous. Returning hunters will know this to be true. So please be honest in your responses. The City Council wants information about wounding rates. The MNDNR wants your input on the state of the herd. What do you think about the Metro designation and the Earn-a-Buck requirement? What are your recommendations for hunter densities in some of the DHAs? Well, here’s your opportunity to provide your input.

Please only complete this survey ONCE.

You must login before you will see the link for the year-end survey located in blue member links menu in.

The survey will remain open for participation until January 15, 2018. Which, coincidentally, is also the deadline for two other requirements:

  1. All of your stands and climbing sticks must be removed from the public woods
  2. You must check in with your Hunt Coordinator

Multiple hunters have also asked about checking in with the HC’s if you didn’t hunt or harvest any animals. Why do you need to even bother? Well, the ABA needs to know that you have zero animals or that you never hunted. Perhaps you forgot to register your deer. And while we think you are at zero deer, you actually did harvest one. Everyone, including landowners hunting ONLY their private property, are required to check in with the Hunt Coordinators. Failure to do so will result in loss of “returning” status in 2018.
