Effects of Wadena tornado felt in hunting land

Email News Alerts

With the demolition of the Wadena-Deer Creek School last month, it's hard to forget the tornado that swept through the area last June.


In fact, the tornado is still being felt in less obvious ways, like in Ken Maki's ruined hunting land north of New York Mills.

The land, which was part of the tornado's path of destruction, normally would have been used for deer hunting. With the destruction wrought by the tornado, however, hunting in the land was almost impossible.
