Minnesota's firearms deer hunters haven't been as lucky as last year. Excluding a late season in southeastern Minnesota, which closed Dec. 1, hunters killed about 144,000 deer, down 6 percent from 2012.
Minnesota hunters killed 7 percent fewer deer this firearms season. The Department of Natural Resources says the drop was expected as the DNR increased the number of lottery areas where hunters had to have a permit to shoot a deer without antlers.
Gov. Mark Dayton and his administration have declared open season on video games. One of the big messages at the 10th annual Minnesota Governor's Deer Opener in Winona on the opening weekend of the firearms deer season was the need to get kids away from their Xboxes and into the outdoors.
