Special Deer Hunt at CW State Park

The Crow State Park is one of several state parks that will be holding a special permit deer hunt to manage the population. 

The DNR advises anyone visiting a park during these hunts to wear blaze orange or other brightly colored clothing. Visitors should also check for hunt-related information at the park office when they arrive and look carefully for signage related to the hunt.

Access to the parks will vary around the state during the special hunts. Some parks will remain open to all visitors, some will have limited public access, and some will be open only to hunters with special permits. The deadlines for youth and adults to apply for a special permit to participate in the hunts – which include regular firearms, muzzleloader and archery options – have passed.

“The DNR allows these annual resource management hunts as a way to help control the deer population at state parks,” said Ed Quinn, resource management coordinator for the DNR’s Division of Parks and Trails. “When there are too many deer in one area, the native plants and animals can be negatively affected. Our goal is to ensure healthy natural communities.”

The permit hunt at the Crow Wing State Park runs  December  3-5.
