Every time I have been out I have seen deer except for two times. I have only seen one buck when it was dark out and I was walking back to my truck. I know they are out there because I have seen them on my trail cam. Last Saturday I seen a fawn by herself with spots on her yet. I thought that was kind of weird. Last weekend, me and another guy went pheasant hunting and we seen a huge buck. I got my sights set on him for the rest of the season. He was at least a 12 pointer. I about tripped over my jaw when I seen him only 10 yards away. Anyone else seeing any?

I dont think the deer numbers in general are all that high in the Willmar area, lower and lower every year it seems. Based on sheds and trail cameras, I know there are some great bucks around this year though. I hope people lay off the jr.s slug season! There are gonna be some nice deer shot this year!

I too have seen deer almost every time out. My dad shot a 10 Pointer out of my stand during the first week of slug season.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
