Get discounts at corn maze with hunting or fishing license

(Released September 16, 2013)

Kids and adults who have a 2013 Minnesota hunting or fishing license can get free and discount admission for the 101 Market Corn Maze in Otsego Saturday, Sept. 21, through Thursday, Oct. 31, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said.

This year’s theme is “Hunt and Fish Minnesota,” which features a corn maze depicting a deer hunter targeting his buck, a pheasant hunter with his dog and an angler with her catch.

“Just like hunting and fishing, mazes are a fun way to spend time with friends and family in the great outdoors,” said Jenifer Wical, DNR customer enhancement manager. “This partnership is a way to say thank you for purchasing a Minnesota hunting or fishing license.”

To receive this special offer, people should show their 2013 hunting or fishing license at the time of purchase. Discounts include either free maze entry (a $6 value) or $3 off a $15 dollar unlimited activity package. All tickets purchased under that license will receive the discount with a limit of six free admissions per license. Additional discounts cannot be used.

Marilyn Nathe Specht, event coordinator at 101 Market, said this new partnership with the DNR made sense. “Our themed corn maze promotes the great outdoors and for us this offer is a way to express our appreciation for those who have contributed to fish and wildlife conservation through their license purchase.”

The Harvest Corn Maze and Fall Festival at 101 Market will have activities beyond the corn maze like an animal-themed train, corn cannon, corn pit, duck races, jumping pillow, pedal carts, potato slinger, spider web and zoo. For directions and more information go to www.mndnr.gov/cornmaze.

Minnesota 2013 fishing and hunting licenses can be purchased on a mobile device or online.
