MN: Number of Deer Hunters Down, but Number of Violations Up

November 10, 2013

From KEYC.com
While many hunters from the local area participated in yesterday's 2013 firearm deer opener, the Minnesota DNR says that overall the numbers were down from a year ago.
Chris Howe, a conservation officer, says that even with the lower number of hunters, the number of state infractions was up compared to other years.
The most common violation he says, was from deer–baiting.
Howe says, "We've had several instances of this just in the last couple days in the Mankato area. So there are multiple folks out there who have lost their firearms in the last two days. So it's something that needs to be taken seriously. It's laid out quite clearly in the hunting regulations and you need to make sure you read them and comply with them."
The fine for deer–baiting includes the loss of your firearm and hunting privileges, along with up to a $1,000 fine.
