DNR: Many deer hunters had good opening weekend
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reported Tuesday that firearm hunters harvested and registered 85,163 deer this past Saturday and Sunday, up very slightly from last year's 85,074.
The early harvest numbers suggest the overall harvest will be somewhat higher than last year, when hunters took about 195,000 deer. Deer hunter numbers are also up this year.
