MN Hunters Can Now Access 29,000 Additional Acres for Hunting

Minnesota Hunters now have an additional 29,000 acres of private land to use for hunting.

According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the acres of land cover 41 counties in western and south-central Minnesota.

Hunters are given permission to use these lands through the Walk In Access program, which pays landowners to allow public hunting on their property.

For three dollars, hunters can access these lands from a half hour before sunrise, until a half hour after sunset.

There’s one WIA property in Faribault County, four in Martin County, three in Blue Earth County and five in Watonwan County.
