Hunting season is in full swing, so the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources wants to remind hunters who harvest deer, elk, moose or caribou outside of Minnesota that whole carcasses cannot be brought into the state.
I normally hunt all three weekends of the MN rifle season, but this year was a shorter season due to family obligations. So here I am all done hunting, and proud to have my first successful "stalking" of a deer story.
Hunting season means a lot of time with family and friends discussing the big shot or the one that got away. Now you can amaze them all by rattling off these Minnesota deer facts, courtesy of the Minnesota DNR.
The Minnesota DNR has been busy informing all hunters of permit areas where testing for Chronic Wasting Disease is mandatory. However, if you harvest a deer outside of one of these areas there is still testing available to make sure the deer is free of CWD.

I still remember the first time I heard a pack of wolves nearby while deer hunting. Growing up this never happened, but now with the wolf population bouncing back, it's a different experience than what it used to be.
The Minnesota DNR is in the process of gathering opinions and meeting with the public throughout the state so they can create Minnesota's first-ever deer management plan. One such public meeting will be held in Duluth, and your thoughts would be appreciated.
