1854 Board of Directors Approves 2022 Ricing, Hunting/Trapping Seasons

We are weeks (or days) away from hitting the woods and waters and filling the freezer. Last week, the 1854 Treaty Authority Board of Directors approved the 2022 Ricing Seasons/Hours and the 2022 Hunting/Trapping Seasons/Bag Limits.

-> Approved 2022 Hunting/Trapping Seasons


A few reminders as we head into the dagwaagin harvest season...

  • Take a spin through the 1854 Conservation Code before the opener to make sure you have your plans and appropriate gear ready and accounted for. (No one wants to be 2 hours up the trail when you realize you forgot "one of the most important things".
  • Don't forget: the 1854 Board of Directors has approved the use of Tribal enrollment cards for off-reservation, treaty harvest, in lieu of an 1854 ID card until DECEMBER 31ST, 2022. No need for all the "Last Minute Lucys" to race to the 1854 Duluth-office the afternoon before deer opener.
  • The Youth Early Deer Hunt is scheduled for October 20-23rd, 2022 (yes, that is MEA weekend). ALL participating Grand Portage and Bois Forte youth will be automatically be entered in a drawing to win a prize of hunting gear worth $150 or more after the close of the weekend. (Range finder? Tree stand? Trail camera?)
  • Be safe out there, and bring home the bacon!
