The firearm season opener is Saturday, November 7th in Minnesota. It's basically the holiday between Halloween and Thanksgiving in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

If you live in rural Minnesota you are even more attuned to that statement. Deer hunting is a big deal, bars do specials and big buck contests, deer camps are organized and held, lots of beer is had, and lots of deer get tagged.

I did the early doe season the DNR held in mid-October this year and didn't see a thing, so I have some redeeming of myself to do in early November. Good luck to all my fellow hunters, and be safe.
