Early deer harvest similar to 2009
Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) officials report that firearm hunters harvested and registered 85,163 deer during the first two days of the season, up very slightly from last year's 85,074.
The early harvest numbers suggest the overall harvest will be somewhat higher than last year when hunters took about 195,000 deer. Deer hunter numbers are also up this year.
