Christmas might be bigger, the walleye opener is probably comparable, but there’s not much in Minnesota that is a bigger deal than the Deer Opener. It’s coming up this Saturday, so this week’s show covers all things deer. Kev Jackson talks with DNR Northwest Regional Wildlife Manager John Williams on the deer situation in the Northwest Region. Numbers, health, and much more are covered, along with a look at other hunting seasons this fall.
In addition, Kev checks in with DNR Conservation Officer Brice Vollbrecht on safety tips and key reminders for staying lawful while hunting. And Myke Stittsworth of Stittsworth Meats discusses keeping the meat fresh and clean until you get it to your butcher. Plus, recipes to get the best out of your venison.
