Good Deer Season Expected 30 Oct 12

Wildlife managers are predicting good luck for hunters when Minnesota’s firearms deer season opens this Saturday. Minnesota’s deer population is reportedly up from last year thanks to a mild winter. The mild weather meant that more adults survived, so more fawns were born. The state’s current deer population is estimated at about 1-million. Last year, Minnesota’s nearly 500,000 deer hunters harvested a total of 192,300 deer.
