From the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association:
“To receive feed you must have a known feeding area on PUBLIC LAND, and know approximately how many deer are on that area. We will get all needed documentation at the time of distribution.
“You DO NOT need to be a member of MDHA to receive feed (but we would love to have you join us!)
“We will have only ½ of a semi load available at each distribution location for the first week, so we will be giving out feed conservatively to try to reach as many locations as possible.
“Deer feed will only be available from us during the posted distribution days and times, as specific documentation needs to be collected and provided to the DNR for reimbursement of the funds.”
