Bear attacks are rare in Minnesota. There's only been 5 that caused injuries since 1987, according to the Minnesota DNR. They've offered some safety tips when it comes to bears, and hunting in general.
We are just several weeks away from the MN Deer Hunting Firearm Opener, and many hunters may need to check their Remington Rifles. The models 7 and 700 have been voluntarily recalled due to a faulty firing system that can fire without squeezing the trigger.
The opening day for the deer archery season begins Saturday, September 13th! Deer population is much lower this year in many parts of the state, so be sure to check your regulation handbook. One big change this year is the amount of "Bucks only Harvest Areas."
Starting this season, a crossbow season will run concurrently with archery season in Wisconsin. Now all hunters are permitted to buy the license. In the past it was only available to hunters with disabilities or those over 65.
Last week Custom Archery & Outdoors had an open house that several of my friends and I attended. We got to to check out some of their latest inventory, demo techno hunt (my favorite), and get our bows tuned up for the upcoming season.
If you've been hunting on private property, you'll definitely need to make sure you have written permission from the owner this year. That includes if it's your immediate family that owns the land. While it may make things a little more complicated, it's designed to help protect livestock.
When you get good enough at archery, apparently you have to make things tougher. This guy, Matt, starts off at 100 yards and works his way up to 300 yards. A lot of us have never even tried shooting a 100 yards, and he makes it look easy.
A few months ago I began shooting archery for the first time. I went to Custom Archery and Outdoors and pretty much said, "I don't know anything, but I want to learn." Within about 8 weeks, I was consistently hitting the bulls eye and doing well at techno hunt.
Melissa Bachman grew up hunting with her family in Paynesville, MN. (By the way she is not related to Michelle Bachman.) Hunting became her passion and she soon was able to form a career around hunting, hosting her own show "Winchester Deadly Passion." The show features her hunting many different animals, and a tweeted photo of her standing over a killed lion started quite the outrage.
