1. Archery Season - deer
  2. Archery Season - Turkey

The 2021 lotto ended 9/3/21, and seven lucky winners were notified by email at 4:00 pm 9/7/21.

Thank you to ALL 69 applicants. We appreciate your continued interest in the airport archery hunt. Good luck to all hunters this fall - be safe out there!

For the seven permit holders, there will be a mandatory pre-hunting meeting at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, in the conference room of the airport airline terminal building. Hunters are to bring their MN DNR Archery deer hunting license, drivers license, and a $5.00 permit fee. Rules policy will be discussed and signed at that time.

How the program works:

Hunting Permits

Permits for archery hunting of whitetail deer are issued by STC based on a lottery system. Seven permits are issued for the 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 showing designated area). Firearm hunting is prohibited!  See the City of St. Cloud's Deer Management Policy.

Harvest Reports

All permit holders are required to complete a Harvest Report, 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 2021 Archery Hunt season is September 18th, 2021 to December 31, 2021. For more information, visit the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) website, call STC Airport Administration at 320-255-7292, or email the St. Cloud Airport.
