Mentored Hunt Opportunity for kids and their parents in the Mounds View School District

This program is offered by the Laurentian Environmental Center and consists of:

1. A week long Forkhorn I camp (parents are welcome to attend but not required) to earn their firearm safety certification and general hunting knowledge. Dates of the camps can be found on www.laurentiancenter.org. Participants will receive a camp scholarship from the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association (MDHA) and a free 1 year membership to MDHA.
2. Mentored Hunt on October 19-22, 2017 based out of the Laurentian Environmental Center facility. Expert hunters will assist each parent/child pair in a safe, enjoyable hunting experience for a white tail deer.
3. Evaluation/Ice Fishing weekend in March. Come for a fun winter experience and participate in a weekend of ice fishing and evaluation of the entire experience.
