DNR Reminds Firearms Hunters of Rules

Hawkes,flickr

UNDATED — The Minnesota DNR is reminding deer hunters of the most common violations they find each year to help you avoid them this season.

Last year Conservation Officers wrote 1,110 citations or warnings during the firearms season.

The number one violation was failing to validate your tag. Minnesota’s deer license and site tag come as a two-part form. The upper half is the site tag for tagging the deer in the field. The lower half is the deer license and registration slip. Don’t forget to tag the deer at the site before transporting it. Carefully punch out the notches for date and time of the kill.

Other common violations include hunting over bait, untagged deer, transporting loaded guns, shining and license not in possession.

The DNR says take some extra time before heading out to hunt to make sure you have your bases covered.
