ROCHESTER, Minn. – We are months away from deer hunting season in Minnesota, but DNR officials are already talking about the hunt.
95% of hunting rules will change in Minnesota, thanks to a ruling made by area wildlife managers. Most hunters in the state will only be able to shoot one deer, while places like, Olmsted County will be able to get two. “We know we have numerous deer problems in the city of Rochester. By having a two deer limit, this gives bow hunters a chance to take a number of those deer in the city to try to reduce those problems,” Wildlife Manager with the Minnesota DNR Don Nelson said.
Overall officials are hoping to rebuild the whitetail population. Deer season begins in November.
