Wind, warm temperatures and lots of sun made for a tough start to the 2011 Minnesota deer hunting season for many area hunters.

According to Bruce Anderson of Detroit Lakes, where there was normally deer sign, there was none this year.


"I haven't seen anything," Anderson said. "With the wind, it's just shutting (the deer) down. I've only seen two scrapes and two rubs and it's usually pretty torn up by sign."
