Bad Year For MN Deer Hunters

January 19, 2012 Updated Nov 8, 2013 at 11:55 PM CDT

Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Minnesotans did not have much luck deer hunting last year.

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources reports that the deer harvest dropped seven percent in 2011, due to lower deer populations and a windy opening weekend.

There were fewer deer in many areas because current hunting regulations are designed to bring deer populations back up to their goal levels.

Now that it has reached those goals, the DNR will re–evaluate population levels and set new rules for the 2012 season.
