Hunters can start planning for the deer season with the release of the 2020 Minnesota hunting and trapping regulation handbook, now available on the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources deer hunting page at mndnr.gov/hunting/deer
Barbara Keller, DNR big game program leader, said that this season hunters in general will see more chances to harvest deer and that these opportunities are due to increases in deer populations in much of the state, and as part of their response to chronic wasting disease in southern Minnesota.
Hunting licenses go on sale Saturday and are available at any DNR license agent, by telephone at (888) 665-4236 or online at mndnr.gov/buyalicense. Additional regulation changes are detailed on the DNR’s deer hunting webpage at mndnr.gov/hunting/deer
