Email News Alerts

Tomorrow morning, close to 500,000 Minnesota deer hunters will tip-toe through the woods in the dark with great anticipation as the firearms opener gets under way.


All will be picturing a big buck presenting them with a perfect shot. That will happen for some, but what most will find is that there are plenty of yearlings and small bucks in the woods this year.
