Crow Wing State Park to close for special hunt on Dec. 7-11

Crow Wing State Park will be closed to all visitors during a special hunt to prevent overpopulation of deer and protect resources on Dec. 7-11, 2019. All available hunt permits for this special hunt have been assigned.

“We allow occasional deer hunts to protect the natural resources in our state parks,” said Tavis Westbrook, Natural Resource Program coordinator for Minnesota State Parks and Trails. “If deer populations become too high in an area, they can negatively impact native plant communities. Deer hunts are an effective tool to maintain a balance between plant and animal life.”

The DNR thanks visitors for their patience and understanding during the hunts.
