Hunting Permits

Permits for archery hunting of whitetail deer are issued by STC based on a lottery system. Seven permits will be issued for the 2020 Deer Archery season. If your name is drawn, a permit fee of $5.00 must be paid before an archery permit will be issued. Hunting is allowed in designated areas outside the fence on STC property (view respective map (PDF) showing designated area).  Firearm hunting is prohibited!  Download the city's Deer Management Policy (PDF).

Complete a Deer Hunt Lottery Application (PDF) and turn it into the terminal's Airport Administrative office with a $10.00 application fee by 3:30 pm on Friday, August 28th, 2020.

Harvest Reports

All permit holders are required to complete a Harvest Report (PDF), whether successful or not. Failure to return the Harvest Information Sheet to STC will result in denied eligibility for any future airport archery hunt.

The 2020 Archery Hunt season is September 19th, 2020 to December 31, 2020. For more information, visit the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) website, call STC Airport Administration at 320-255-7292, ext. 3, or email the St. Cloud Airport.
