Responding to concerns from many deer hunters that the state’s deer population is too low, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association will hold a series of “listening sessions” across the state to gather input from the public.
All listening sessions will be from 7-9 p.m. Here’s a list of the meetings in northern Minnesota:
Virginia: April 1, Mesabi Range College, 1001 Chestnut St. West, auditorium.
Bemidji: March 24, Bemidji High School, 2900 Division St. West, Lumberjack Room.
Brainerd: March 19, Central Lakes Community College, 501 West College Drive.
Online comments also will be accepted beginning March 19 at www.mndnr.gov/deer.
