Deer Harvest

Minnesota hunters harvested 128,814 deer through the second weekend of the 2013 firearms season, according to preliminary numbers announced by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

The firearms season ends for many locations in the state on November 24th.  A late 3B firearm season in southeastern Minnesota begins Saturday, November 23rd, and concludes Sunday, December 1st.

The firearm harvest to date is down 6 percent from last year at this time. Overall, antlered buck harvest is down 7 percent and antlerless harvest is down 5 percent.

The DNR says based on its population estimates, the decrease in buck harvest was not anticipated and may reflect hunting conditions more than population.,              

Hunters are reminded that deer must be registered online, via telephone or through an in-person visit to a big game registration station within 48 hours of harvest.....
