1854 HOSTed ATV SAFETY Training and certification IN NETT LAKE
Anyone born after July 1st, 1987 must complete an ATV safety training to operate an ATV in Minnesota. In order to keep our Band memebrs safe, 1854 hosted an ATV safety training on June 29th in Nett Lake. Congrats to the 10 participants that got certified, and great job for sticking it through the self study! Check out the photos from the field day. Happy wheelin'!
TWO NEW SNF CAMPGROUNDS OPEN FOR BAND MEMBER USE

Online Deer registration
Although you still have the option of registering at an 1854 Treaty Authority Hunting Registration Stations, ceded territory harvested deer can now be registered here. Be prepared to provide the same information required when registering at a station (ie, date, sex, adult/fawn, management unit of harvest, method, 1854 ID card number and license tag number). The same deadline applies to internet registration: deer must be registered no later than 4:30pm of the 3rd working day after the season is closed and before being processed.
