Voyageur National Park Hunting Reminder

INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. – Voyageurs National Park reminds visitors that hunting and trapping of any type or manner is prohibited on Federal lands and all waters within the boundary of the park.

This includes the removal of animals that have entered the park boundary after being shot outside of the park.

Park rangers enforce hunting and trapping laws under federal regulations. These regulations carry a maximum penalty up to $10,000 and/or six months in jail for misdemeanor violations and $20,000 and/or five years in jail with forfeiture of hunting equipment for felony violations.

Park officials remind hunters to know where they are hunting.

Maps showing the park boundary and area information are available at visitor centers, boat launch kiosks, and at park headquarters.
