Through Monday, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources had sold 224,678 firearms deer licenses.  That’s just ahead of last year’s pace, when over 221,000 firearms licenses had been sold by the same date.

Minnesota’s firearms deer season opens Saturday and continues through Nov. 20.

Meanwhile, bow hunters are starting to see some deer movement. Dawson Sample of Barnum shot the buck shown above last night near Barnum.
