The fourth annual Minnesota Backcountry Hunters & Anglers Rendezvous is scheduled for August 19–21, 2016. We’ll be setting up camp at a Group campsite in Wild River State Park on the St. Croix River (about 60 miles north of Minneapolis-St. Paul & 115 miles south of Duluth). Wild River State Park is located on the banks of the St. Croix River. It’s named “Wild River” because it was one of the rivers protected by Congress in the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968.
We’ll be in Primitive Group Camp A-GC02 (campground map), and the event will begin as folks begin arriving Friday afternoon and evening, with an extended social hour and, weather permitting, a group campfire. If anyone is willing/able to haul in a load of community firewood (ensuring it’s DNR approved/pest-free), the contribution will be greatly appreciated.
Overall, this will be another relaxed, mostly unstructured “get acquainted” weekend, with a Saturday afternoon get-together and general membership meeting (starting at 4:00 p.m.) where we can exchange ideas, congrats, frustrations, etc.
Our meeting will be followed by a group cookout, with MN BHA supplying burgers, brats, sides, chips/dip, etc. Let MN BHA co-chair Erik Jensen know if you can bring/contribute some wild game (contact information below). We’ll also pick up plates/utensils, but feel free to bring/supply your own.
Please email or call if you think you will probably come so we know how many to plan for, or if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in camp!
