The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will showcase youth hunting opportunities at its informational booth during the 29th annual Game Fair.

The outdoor show is Aug. 6-8 and Aug. 13-15 at the Armstrong Kennels Ranch, six miles northwest of Anoka. Show hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

Hunting and fishing licenses.
Becoming an Outdoors Woman program.
Game Fair has more than 300 exhibitors, plus hunting, shooting and dog exhibitions that are expected to draw more than 50,000 people during this yearís run.

I got to hunt with my daughter in two youth State Park deer hunts.  We've hunted a bunch together since then, but those first two hunts, when it was just she and I, those were the best.

I did a couple hunts with my son when he was 12. We saw a ton of deer and had a couple monsters on camera. We had a blast!
The best part was one morning there was a shot about hr or more before sunlight. We saw several COís driving thru I asked the park manager the next day what the deal was. Well apparently dear old dad told JR itís ok to shoot under a brightly lite moon. He said he thought it was the sun coming up.
BUSTED! 
Of all places to do something STUPID like that at a park where all the park employees are on high alert for that stuff.

Man time flys that was 15 years ago now!

Something similar happened to me.

I hunted a piece of public land near a guy who thought it was his own private property.  At one point he tore down my permanent stand (back when it was allowed) and moved his permanent stand CLOSER to my spot.  I busted him the day he was doing it (a week or two before the opener).  I fixed mine up and suggested he ought not do that again.

Not that year, but the following, I was walking in well before sunrise and kicked up a deer as I was nearing my stand.  A minute or two later a shot rang out.  There was no way I wanted to walk over to him in the dark to confront him so I climbed up into my stand.  I could see his stand from mine - he built his that close to mine.

About 10:00 he shoots again and climbs out of his stand.  I figured if he was going to start futzing around with that deer, my hunting was screwed up for a while, so I decided to confront him.  I reminded him that he shot that one a little early.  Oh no, he said, I shot this one just now - someone else was shooting before sunrise.  I told him that you and I both know we are the only two guys up here and walked away glaring at him.

I did not turn him in because I didn't want my tires slashed or windshield shot out.  I was afraid he was the type that would do something like that.
