Firearms Deer Hunt Begins Saturday In Minnesota

UNDATED (KDAL) - The DNR estimates there are about a million deer in Minnesota and they expect the herd will be trimmed by about 200,000 after the firearms deer hunting season wraps up.  It all begins on Saturday and if last year is any indication, about 38 percent of the hunters will succeed in bagging a deer.  The average hunter will spend five days in the field and the deer season provides an economic impact of about 458 million dollars statewide.  Again this year, unwanted venison can be donated for distribution to food shelves under a program coordinated by the departments of natural resources and agriculture.  More information on the donation program can be found on the DNR website.
