Conditions remain wet in many areas of Minnesota. Hunters, it may be a good idea to scout first or check ahead for conditions. Information for individual deer permit areas can be found at mndnr.gov/deermap.
The fall’s heavy rains have made some forest roads and trails impassable, so make sure to check forest trail and road conditions before heading out. On roads and trails that remain open, drivers must use caution. Driving off the road, even to avoid mud puddles, can damage the road edge and surroundings.
