Make the last few days of the Minnesota muzzleloader season count

If you’re a deer hunter of the never-say-die variety, there’s still a sliver of time to harvest a buck during the muzzleloader season, which ends this Sunday, Dec. 10, in Minnesota. Use your time wisely. (Photo courtesy of Joe Shead)
With preliminary numbers from the recently completed firearms deer season showing a 7% decline in harvest from last year, it’s not surprising that muzzleloader license sales are up a bit, as hunters continue to try to bag their deer. Although plenty of hunters shot deer during the firearms deer season – 112,636 was the preliminary total from the recently-completed season – many hunters saw fewer deer and harvest numbers dropped. That doesn’t bode well for your chances to shoot a deer, but with persistence and a little luck, there’s still time.
