Curious how all view the current state of MN deer management. I hunt 342 and was in stand am and pm every day 1st season and have never seen so few deer. Overall as of last week the deer kill in the state was down 23% and of course being blamed on the weather. However – that is the same excuse I have heard for over a dozen years now by the DNR. On top of, IMO, a big drop of deer population they increased the number of permits to 3 in 342. I am sure there are pockets of decent deer population in our area – but it is the exception not the norm.
