(St. Paul, MN) -- Hunters are getting access to more private property in western and south-central Minnesota thanks to an agreement crafted by the state Department of Natural Resources.
The Walk-In Access program begins in 41 Minnesota counties today. Hunters pay the state to get permission to access the land, while the landowners are compensated for allowing that access. The agreement covers over 29,000 acres of private property and runs through May 31st.
