I guess there is talk about shutting down the deer season this year north of hwy 95 due to the number of deer found dead due to starvation.

They are saying the deer numbers could reflect similar statistics of 1970-71 seasons when they closed deer hunting.

Can’t add links but the articles are on kstp and the star tribune.

A buddy sent me a clip yesterday about how bad things are in Wyoming.  They expect to lose at least 70% of their elk and mule  deer and antelope.  Hwy crews are picking up truck loads of dead animals by the roads.  I hope it isn't that bad here.  I wonder if they are going to do the hay bale drops with choppers?

The deer up here have had it way better this year than last year. We had double the snow last winter and it was colder longer. I remember up here after 2 back to back winters. 95/96 and 96/97 the DNR said they lost 75% of the deer herd. To much revenue loss for them to close the season.
Hey look your bobber is up!
