Bucks are ready to break out

Over the course of the next week, bow hunters will have an opportunity rarely seen in Minnesota – the chance to hunt a portion of the rut before the start of firearms season.


The gun season normally falls on the first Saturday in November. If you hunt in an area that sees a lot of pressure like me, you know that the chances of seeing a big buck within bow range after that become a lot less likely.
