Has anyone hunted in the National Forest Public Lands in any units close to the Canadian border?

looking for info on Northern Minnesota Whitetail hunting

Never hunted that far north before but know of a few guys who have. Very remote area. Lots of dense forest. Supposedly lots of deer though and some nice bucks. If you are thinking about the BWCAW may I suggest a really good map and gps. Lots of fire up that way more towards the eastern end of the BWCAW so that area should be good next year. Sorry if I cant offer any more help. I hunt further south in MN. Where you from?? Good luck.

Not as many deer in the remote areas, lots of timber wolves. Deer stay closer to civilization because wolves avoid civilization. By the way, welcome tjhunt

Depends on where you are looking. Our camp is on the southern edge of the Superior National Forest. The deer population is way up in that area again - certainly the highest it has been since the winters in the early 90s that knocked it down so much.

RyanP, Great news, sounds like the place to hunt.

I was talking to my son-in-law who hunts in Southern Minnesota and around the Minneapolis, St. Paul metro area. You can take 4 or 5 deer per hunter with bonus tags. Sounds like I have been hunting in the wrong part of the state.
