Brad Parsons, DNR fisheries chief, explained the agency’s thinking behind the controversial catch-and-release regulation that began with the open-water season last Saturday. (This year’s walleye regulation is catch and release through at least Aug. 15, then there could be some limited harvest late this summer.)

Outdoor Insights: Early deer harvest numbers trending lower so far in Minnesota

Joining me on last weekend’s Outdoor News Radio show and podcast, Barb Keller, the DNR’s big-game program leader, said she doesn’t expect Minnesota’s deer kill this year to exceed 2022’s.

Central and southern hunters could help by hunting hard and killing multiple deer, but overall, Keller expects a kill similar to 2022 and maybe even slightly lower.
